A few weeks ago I ordered the Zagg keyboard cover for the iPad mini and also the Zagg leatherskin for the iPad mini to protect the back of the iPad while in the keyboard. Only after ordering did I read that the hinge would not fit with the skin on. Mind you the site also said that both the keyboard folio and the keyboard cover don't fit the new r-mini (which is wrong they both fit fine) so I was hoping they might be wrong in this too. Today I received both in the mail and for once they were right the hinge wouldn't fit over the cover attached to the back of the mini, so to make them work I just carefully measured and cut around the hinge area in the skin and as you can see in the photos it works fine. The hinge protects the area that the skin doesn't so a win-win all round. Very pleased.
