I purchased an iPad Mini on 11/12/12 from Best Buy. At the salesperson's insistence, I also purchased a Smart Cover, Zagg Screen Protector and extended warranty, as well. At the end of December, I noticed that the left hand edge of the glass screen (near where the Smart Cover attaches to the iPad Mini) has small chips on it. I have always been extremely careful when I used the iPad Mini. The only thing I can think that might have happened is that it fell off the sofa onto an area rug. The fall was less than two feet and there was no force behind it; it simply slipped off the sofa. Could that have caused the chipping? I am a neat freak and like my toys to remain pristine; needless to say, I am very disappointed. I haven't taken it back to Best Buy yet. I wanted to find out if this was a common occurrence or if it is a rare event. I also wanted to know if any of you have had this same issue. Thanks for responding.
