    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. :)

    Hi

    I have just been on to ZAGG and they said that the ZAGGKeys cover with backlit keyboard does not fit the retina mini but having seen a video on youtube it appears it might - can you confirm that it does as I really want to order one today with the 50% discount.

    Thanks

    Yes I can confirm that both the folio and the cover keyboard styles fit my r-mini just fine.. I envy you the half price I got mine at full....

    Thanks for posting this, got the Zagg keyboard and a first gen Mini with a retina Mini on the way. Was worried it wouldn't fit.

    It's an awesome little keyboard, got it on sale too :)
