    I just got the coolest low profile case for my Mini, check it out

    Just got the coolest case for the mini, BB has it for $35. Made by X-Doria, called the smartcase. After having ipad 2 with portfolio style case, I wanted a low profile case to really keep the size down and this was it. And it was essential I had the magnet so that the ipad shuts on and off each time I close it. Basically Apples smart cover on the front and hard polycarbonate backing that fits the ipad really perfect. I like the smart cover but not for $50 hahahaha, cost 10 cents to make it.

    Theres no demo on youtube for this case so heres a video i took for those interested.

    Thanks for the heads up. I may go see if my BB has them. I'm itching for a decent case.

    Do you happen to know how much it weighs?

    That is definitely the style of case I want. I'm not digging the rear design though but that is, of course, personal

    I'm glad you found yours!

    The rear adds some spice to it.

    Looks like the Poetic slimline portfolio. They are selling them for $4.95 FREE shipping on amazon.com right now.
    There are some other poetic cases for really cheap as well on amazon for a limited time.

    One of the cases I have whose sleep/wake doesn't work is very similar to these. One concern I have with it is the plastic back has some rather sharp edges....I'm concerned about it scratching the paint off my blackish blue mini along the bordering edges.

    I think is the one of the differences between a $5 case and a $50 case.

    True! I feel like I am going to need to see the case in person...
    I just ordered a Radtech felt sleeve for now until I can find a case I like.

    Do you know where one can buy this case online? I live in the UK and can't seem to find a retailer, thought Amazon might do it..but no.

    Sharp edges on this Poetic $5 case? I agree i prefer to see the case in person first before buying. Hard to do with just pics. Need to see the fit and finish.

    The case I have, i dont think you can find a better fit for that price.

    Maybe try contacting the manufacturer which is X- Doria.
