Great feel, not too bulky, super protective, great fit.

Awesome!
Once you get an Otterbox you might as well drop the "Mini" the iPad name. If you need super protection though, I get it.

The Bestbuy I was at yesterday had this too but only in a blue i didn't at all care for and I don't care for most cases that cover the edge of the screen....so I passed it by. Just a personal preference thing.

Sorry...have to respectfully disagree. Have you actually tried it, or are you assuming?

In use....so without the front cover on....I actually think it almost seems more manageable and comfortable for someone with adult, dude-sized hands.

Whats with the Smart Covers from Navitech?

http://www.navi-tech.co.uk/tablet-ac...cover-274.html

They look similar to the ones from Apple, but possible they have a better fixation (?)

Completely agree.

I passed it by the first few times because of perceived added bulk looking at it in the packaging in the store. Once I said "screw it" though and opened up the package in the store I realized that in use, w/o the front cover/stand, it was actually a pretty decent size. Once I got it home and installed my Mini I knew I had made a good decision.

I think if the Mini is a go everywhere device this is an excellent choice. I feel completely confident in chucking in my bag or setting it on the edge of the sink in the throne room with tile floors :-)

Got my WaterField Ultimate case for the mini. Quality is top notch. A bit expensive but unlike a fitted back type I can use this for several generations of the mini assuming the form does not change substantially. My full size one fit my gen 1,2,3 and with minor cleaning looks as good as new.

see above. It has a pocket that can hold papers or earphones or a port adapter. Probably not a power supply though.

I think they really did a good job on keeping the bulk down and making it feel great in the hand.

Same here, I agree with what you said and in fact, the iPad mini is so thin that putting it into the Otterbox Defender makes it really nice and easier to hang onto!

I highly recommend this case and love the cover that you can use as a stand.

I removed the plastic protective lens that's part of the case. I cant stand screen protectors or plastic covers that protect the screen. I want to interact with the actual screen itself!

I have had every iPhone to date and never protected the screens and have not had a scratch on any of my screens to date. The glass is pretty tough stuff.

I've got this one from Goji: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a0WINZdnK-s

It's really great and cheap. Tried it on a Mini in the store. Now I just have to wait for my Mini to arrive

Edit: the video is for the iPad 3gen, but identical (expect size) to the Mini

The pictures on Amazon for the poetic slimline changed. Too bad, I really preferred the appearance of the ones in the youtube video.

KHOMO Folio case from Amazon

I don't know if anyone has seen this case. I originally ordered it around the time I pre-ordered the mini for $3.99 (Has since been raised to $9.99). It currently does not have the slee/wake feature, but like other cases, a replacement will be sent once completed.

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009E8O25I/ref=ox_ya_os_product

The case is pretty nice considering the price.



Close up to show the pattern/texture. It's more of a dark gray than the black that is pictured here.





The cutouts are OK, but I wish there was alittle more coverage.




Stand modes are sturdy and work well.




Overall, I'm like this more than the Speck FitFolio and JoyFactory SmartSuit, but will reserve final judgement to when I get the replacement with the sleep/wake function.

If it's spam, he did a poor job of not posting a link to his product.

Lighten up, Francis. It's not like he's repeatedly posted pictures of CF strips applied to everything complete with a vendor link.

It's actually only 1 product in 3 different colors. (As with most cases) posted all the pictures as this is a case thread in which people might like the case and also want the case.

Either way I'm ordering it, it will take a while to be delivered as its coming from the east. Anyways. Nillkin is a make which does all sorts of cases.

I'm thinking that I like this style folio case more than say the Smart Case like folios, or folios similar to the iPad 1 design. If anyone has spotted a similarly designed case on Amazon please point it out to me, specially the ones that snap in and have the back completely covered.
Sweet! It appears my Devicewear order has shipped. Will post pics once I get it, probably later this week.
