    I doubt it, but I would love leather in tan, black, and white :cool:

    Tan is my favorite on the 9.7"

    Probably. I'm surprised the Polyurethane ones are $39.

    We'll only see leather if they can make the hinge leather. It's safe to assume the hinge is poly so it doesn't scratch the back of the iPad.

    I disagree. I am not an Apple fan-boy but I prefer iOS over Android by far (the only reason I joined to forum is to have a release for my excitement for the iPad mini.) Mainly because of how many apps I invested in even before Android became popular.

    Anyways, with Apple you get high quality. You pay extra for that. Personally, I wouldn't spend extra on a laptop for high quality but I would for a tablet. Logical, right?

    they make the mini smart covers with microfiber on the bottom and polyurethane on the outside

    same with the leather on the 9.7" smart covers with microfiber on the bottom

    I know. I've had both for the iPad. I meant that the Mini's leather needs to be identical to the poly. No metal touching the Mini at all. It would probably wreak havoc on the slate.

    i don't see why they can't, even if they have to cover the metal with more microfiber rather than leather

    the only thing i don't like about the mini poly cover is the way that little sliver bends over. i wonder how long it takes to eventually tear

    there's no fear of tearing with the metal hinge

    sliver, not silver

    the poly bends over, instead of having a hinge

    Damn, I much prefer the leather covers. Any update on if they'll be available? Doesn't seem like it at the present...
