    Any thoughts on Apple OEM cases for the iPad mini? I have the old grey smart cover and like it, but I've heard nice things about the black case, and I've also heard that the polyurethane is a big improvement.

    What Apple case/cover are you using with the new mini?

    When you buy the rMini on Apple.com, it suggests that you buy a cover/case. I selected the black cover to go with my rMini, and the next day it arrived, although the rMini still hasn't. So, something tells me that the cover for the rMini is the same as the Mini (or they had them stocked before the rMini).

    Also, if you go to the product information page of the Smart Cover, it lists both Minis as compatible. So, I don't think there really is a new Smart Cover for the new Mini.

    Get the medium gadget sleeve from Saddleback leather. It is amazing quality, and protects your Mini during transport. When actually using the iPad Mini, I take it out of the sleeve and use it naked (the Mini I mean).
