    As much as I hate threads full of clueless people opining on what we'll see in iPhone 5, I am curious if anyone would be interested in mini Smart Covers.

    It would slide off in your pocket with all the movement of walking.

    I think that it is a terrible idea. I wouldn't buy one.

    Not quite a terrible idea, but I wouldn't buy one either

    I don't think it would be useful on a phone.

    It would be cool if it flipped up vertically, like an old-school detective's notepad cover.

    imagine all the lint, dust and grit getting between it and your screen while it's in your pocket moving around. A disaster waiting to happen.

    Agreed. We won't be seeing any smart cover for the iPhone 5.

    Would the cover just hang off on the side while talking? Or would you have to remove it to talk. Sounds cumbersome.

    Does not make much sense for something as small as a phone.

    It would be pointless for me as I use my phone a lot, and having to peel a cover off my phone would get annoying after 10 minutes. Also, this would block notifications if we were to see an upgraded notification system. I wouldn't buy one.

    i think it would hurt for apple to put the magnet in there for companies that make pouches and folio cover or wallets so when you close it you know it is off, as for the smart cover i dont think that would work

    Maybe a sleeve type case that turns it off when you slide it in, and turns it on when you take it out...

    the magnets in the smart cover are strong enough to hold the ipad up on a fridge...unless you're wearing really tight pants, i think it'd hold fine
