Apple doesn't sell a black one for the Mini.

Apple doesn't sell a black one for the Mini.

i know that.... that's why i'm trying to find an after market one... guess i needed to specify that but assumed people would understand that....

Here's one on eBay, but I can't confirm the quality. It's only 15 bucks, so it's not a total loss if it stinks.

15 bucks for a smart cover and a lightning cable...wow...haha

If anyone orders one, I'd be interested in knowing how the quality is with the cover.

I'd love to get a black smart cover and/or a leather smart cover. I'm sure eventually more will start popping up.

I tried searching for info on dying my dark gray smart cover but it seems these poly smart covers are resistant to just about everything (which I suppose is a good thing).

The $15 price is for the Smart Cover only. The combo is $21, but I wouldn't trust the cable.

thanx!!!! I may order one! not usually a fan of ordering from china since the shipping takes soooooo long... but this appears to be the only available black one!

I have no interest in their lightening cable! I'd be afraid it would damage my ipad or iPhone!

Agreed. I wouldn't use the cable at all. I'd much rather pay the 19 for the peace of mind.

Looks like the ipad2/ipad3 smart cover that uses hinges. Not sure I would waste 15 on this but it may work out if you have to have that color.

That eBay one looks like the big ipad smart case

How about this: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009JRMBVG/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00? It's only $15 but there are 30 reviews most of which are 4 and 5 stars. There's a video review too.

edit: Oh... it has a back too if that's a dealbreaker.

I'm debating between the Incipio Lexington and the Scosche Black Carbon Fiber case. Links below. The Amazon suggestion above looks like a good buy as well.

Edit: I realize that you only want the top cover, but I thought you might possibly be interested by a more homogenous look. As you mentioned Carbon Fiber, I immediately thought of the Scosche.
