    i want just a smartcover, as i want to use a carbon phantomskinz on the back.... but i need (want) black... not the fugly dark grey that apple sells...

    i have had no luck in finding one...

    if anyone has found an after market black one please, PLEASE post a link for me!!!

    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.

    I would like a black one too

    That eBay one looks like the big ipad smart case

    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.
