Hi all,

I don't want to spend a lot of $$ on the case since a new ipad mini will be released next year and we won't be able to use our existng cases.

I looke dat switch easy canvas $39 is this a good price or the coverbuddy for $19 but does not cover the screen.

Is there a good case which covers teh screen as well and has the stand capability of the switcheasy canvas.

Wow, do you have an inside source that both knows there will be a new Mini next year AND it will be physically different from the current one?

Haha...no, but going by apple's history, there will be a new ipad mini next year and most probably it will be thinner or there would be a lsight varioation which would make the current cases probably not comaptible with it, just guessing buy what I have experienced. I have a $50 Switcheasy Canvas that I use with my ipad2 and I bought the ipad4, now that ipad 2 case does not fit ipad 4, so based on that I made the comment.

I bought a poetic slimline from amazon. Super cheap and looks super nice. I didn't wanna spend the $39 on a smart cover :/

I can vouch for the Poetic Slimline as well. For the $6.95 that I paid for it, it's an excellent case.

Smart Cover + Cover Buddy. Perfect combination. If Apple made the Smart Case for iPad mini, I would have got that instead.

He mentioned cheap. The Smart Cover at $39 is not cheap especially considering the full size Smart Cover is $39, the mini version should be $29 or under.

I just received this gorgeous case for my soon to arrive white Mini. It is truly stunning and I can't wait to use it. Packaging is as excellent as the product itself. A truly class act!

Thank you for the recommendations, but for the poetic a few reviews say that within a week it became loose and some other minor comaplaints, but its priced really good.

I also saw a targus canvas type case at Costco for $26 it came with a stylu stoo. It said for ipad 3rd and 4th on the price sticker, but on the back of teh case package only said ipad 3 so I di dnot pick it up.

I was wondeirng if anyone has any experienc with teh targus case and if there is also a mini verson of the case.

I have that case. Ive been using the clear case from Switcheasy so far. This case is very beautiful though.

Poetic Slimline is good...only problem is after I have my mini in it... its a bit hard to pop it out. I also picked up the Moko for $2.99 and I like that one as well. There are quite a bit on Amazon for cheep so If yo don't like it... no major loss.

You lose the greatness of the size/weight by putting it in an Otterbox that is unless you take it to a construction site or something.

I am not sure now, i feel like if i buy the poetic hardcase to save money and it is as good, then i will have to spend money agian to buy another case Switcheasy and get the canvas but now it will be $39 plus the money spet on the poetic.


Can anyone post pics of their ipad mini with teh poetic case on.

DOe sit satnd well or is it flimsy.
