As someone who is shopping for a case for my new Retina iPad mini, I find it frustrating that the market is flooded with these smart cover/smart case knock-offs (i.e. Poetic Slimline). Don't get me wrong, I have no issue with cheap case options, but what I do have a problem with is three-panel (four-panel in the full size iPad's case) design that has become so popular that Amazon is littered with different no-name brands with the same case. I guess what frustrates me the most is that it's not even one of the better "functional" designs. I realize this is only my opinion, but I think the stand design (not the case itself) for the original iPad case was better and I would love to see more options with that stand design and a shell enclosure (instead of the slide-in enclosure Apple used), sort of like the Brenthaven Trek case. I also think the design the Devicewear Ridge uses is also superior. Do people really think the Smart Cover/Case design is superior? Are people scooping up the Poetic Slimline because it's superiorly functional or because it's a great value (or both I suppose)? If Poetic made a case similar to the Brenthaven Trek case or the Devicewear Ridge and sold it at a similar price, do you think those designs/cases would be more popular? I guess this is part me venting after a few days of case searching and another part of me wondering what other people think.
