Best Apple iPad mini cases
The 7.9-inch Apple iPad mini has just been officially announced, but case manufacturers seem to have expected it and are quickly coming up with beautiful cases to protect that gorgeous piece of unibody aluminum.

How do they manage to make those cases so quick you might wonder? Well, our guess is that since there were so many rumors about the upcoming 7.9-inch Apple tablet, companies made one big assumption and worked off of that. Plus, with so many different form factors in Android land, the process should be pretty much worked out.

It’s a totally separate question whether a device looks good with or without a case or a cover, but you can’t argue that as the mini lacks a Kickstand, most cases do a good job in doing exactly that, keeping your device up right.

But covers and cases also give an extra layer of protection and often times beauty to that glass screen. So here are some of the first cases for the iPad mini, check them out below.

The first one made me laugh! it's cute. By the way, the Mini's been only out for a few days and they've already made numerous nice cases!?!. The Galaxy Note 2's been out for a few months and I still don't see a good case for that.

I think it would look better if facing the back or holster vignette! This will make it more lively and more cute!

I returned my iPad 3 two weeks after launch. I had a feeling the 3rd gen would not last long. Was kinda heavy, thicker, ran hotter, and refreshed pdfs slower than my ipad 2. I will be gettn the ipad4 though when i find a buyer for my iPad2

I do miss the retina display and the new A6 processor should load things much faster. Hopefully it runs cool like my ipad2.

If you're in the market for a really sleek and simple case: A bunch more ranging from protective sleeves to vintage looking bags, etc: They're all made in San Francisco (home of the World Series champs) too - no overseas sweatshops !
