Background I recently sold both iPad Mini 64GB WiFi + Cellular (AT&T) on eBay in anticipation of the new iPad Air and iPad Mini with Retina Display launch. I really thought the iPad Air would be the device for me owning original iPad, iPad 2, and iPad 3. The iPad Mini followed the iPad 3 because the heft of the Retina Display full size iPad. I (we) only used smart covers for the full size iPads because their finish was durable. Fast forward to the iPad Mini with the delicate chamfered edge and cases became the norm. The iPad Air has now adopted the chamfered edge so full coverage. The bulk with a case was not acceptable on the two iPad Air 128GB WiFi + Cellular (AT&T) we picked up on launch day. I absolutely hated (bulk, fit, gaps, etc.) the iPad Air SmartCase. About the only thing I appreciated about the SmartCase was the finish. I have since returned the iPad Air and exchanged the accessories for iPad Mini accessories. Question For those that have received their iPad Mini with Retina Display and use the Apple iPad Mini SmartCase, please provide your feedback. Does it have the same gaps at the hinge? Does it seem to flop open to easily?
