iPad Mini in Pockets

Does anyone else notice how awesome it is to keep your Mini right inside a pocket. I have been walking around with it in my back pocket while i'm inside my house. I haven't left the house with it yet because i just got it in the mail at around 4. Do you guys keep it in a pocket? would be interesting to hear how many do because of the great form factor.

It actually doesn't fit in most pockets... I just carry it everywhere since I bought it! LTE is awesome too!

I usually keep my iPhone in my back pocket so I can't see how the Mini would fit. Especially since I also sit with my iPhone in the back pocket. I do see how it would be nice and convenient with baggy pants.

Just don't sit down with the mini in your pocket.

iPhones have always been sturdy little buggers, and nothing bad has happened to mine when doing that. The larger Mini, on the other hand, probably can't handle it, which makes it less convenient as a pocketable device since you always have to take it out of your pocket when you sit down.

Looking for a lightweight jacket with a pocket big enough to fit the Mini in. I have a small carry case with a handle but I rather just slip it into a pocket.

I'll look around in Target, Kmart, Walmart, Kohls, etc for one.

Yep, I would feel that is awesome.

I have a leather jacket and it fits in almost every pocket. Feels very badass. Imagine jackets that are branded as being "Made for iPad".

Don't compromise for the iPad. Just have the jacket you like altered.

Well I have one that would work but it is a New Balance product. It is more a shell than a jacket and really not heavy enough for this time of year but I guess I could wear a sweater under it. It has a zipper and the inner pocket is more than big enough to fit the Mini. There is a pocket on each side. Guess I gotta buy another Mini.
