That's good. It also looks like the regular iPad version can fold back completely. I hope this one works the same way.

I'm undecided at the moment. I have ordered several cases to try out, but also got a full body skin in case I decide a case is not for me. If I go the no case route then I will get a sleeve. The sleeve would probably be from Waterfield, Timbuk2, or Tom Bihn unless something else catches my eye.

I'm looking for one that's just a hard case for the back. It will be for my mother & she will never take it anywhere so she just needs something to help her grip it.

So that's what those are for. I was wondering why any one just wanted the back.

I decided, this morning, not to get the leather as I'm a kitchen surfer and sometimes the table is not clean. I'd be so pissed if I had a nice leather Cognac Brown and it comes up with honey on it

I 'treated' myself to one of these

Arrived already and I like it a lot (ok still waiting for the actual tablet) but its grippy, feels solid and the stand works well. It folds back nicely (for when I am reading in the car as will be 80% of my mini's use).

as cheap cases go I like it. The only improvement I would want is a magnetic latch; but its not a deal breaker for me.

The back is hard plastic with a grippy like covering (rubbery?) and the case has an elastic strap to hold it closed.

I was really wondering about this as I don't want to order a case that's like really made by Speck so I did the live chat with them and at first the rep didn't know of any iPad case but after showing the Amazon link and some checking being done, he/she says it's legit but that there will be a larger selection once it's posted on their main site.

Here's the chat log.

Good to know! I had already ordered it since if it was fake or anything I knew Amazon would be an easy return, but it's good to know its the real deal.

Here's what I ordered.

http://www.amazon.com/KaysCase-Smart-Cover-Compatible-Apple/dp/B009SDH10C/?ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1351277148&sr=8-1&keywords=ipad+mini+family&tag=gmgamzn-20

You can currently order it for 40% off with code GIZ40OFF thus figured not much to lose if it doesn't work.

They also have a hard shell version as well. Also 40% code is only good thru today!

I was hoping Best Buy had some mini accessories for sale. I checked during lunch break and the employee said Thursday they will be putting some out. I was hoping to get a head start on accessories today.

Switcheasy Coverbuddy is listed on Macmall, but no mention on Switcheasy's site.

I'm buying this one, too. I'm trying to decide which color. I ordered the Black/Slate iPad Mini and am debating between clear and smoke. Did you get smoke also?

This is a pretty nice and slim case for the iPad Mini that's available now:

http://www.amazon.com/rooCASE-Ultra-...ini+ultra+slim

I've got the magenta but it also comes in 4 more colors.

Do it have the Kays Logo slapped all over the back? Or does it blend in with the case?

Mind uploading pictures?
