    Hi,

    Is there a case on the market that is a near exact copy of the iPad smart case but for the mini?

    Thanks

    No you're not going to find an exact replica I'm afraid.

    Thanks for all your replies.

    I spotted the Khomo online and you're right it does look like the best option.

    Unfortunately neither the Khomo seller on Amazon US or the Khomo website ship to the UK.

    I've looked into getting this shipped via Bundlebox (a parcel redirection service)but it's looking to cost approx £36/40.

    The lack of a UK option put me off too, would have been my first choice of case.

    Seems odd that Apple make a Smartcase for the iPad, but only a Smartcover for the mini.

    if you're ok i could possibly check out the possibility of buying and shipping this to you. let me know.

    UPDATES: that is co crazy - to ship to UK via USPS is about $78 and to ship via UPS is about $120. and that is with a value of $10 and the size of box is only 10"x9"x2. outrageous. maybe not a possibility at all. sorry about that.

    Thanks for the offer vmaniqui, how much do you reckon it would cost from US to UK via a normal international service?

    Spotted that Seamaster, that's the case I'm after probably in orange and green to match my phone and iPad 4 smart case.

    I agree, why not bother with a smart case for the mini? I think it would look great.

    I got the Khomo case for my wife's iPad Mini. It's awesome! It's everything I wish the Apple SmartCase was for the regular iPad. No sharp edges and the iPad is held in the case firmly. My iPad 3 is always popping out of the SmartCase and the bottom piece around the dock connector has started to separate. I'm probably going to order one for my iPad. Even if Apple does release a SmartCase for the Mini, I'd choose this over it any day.
