What happens when you drop your new iPad Mini onto a ceramic tile floor?
No, it was not in a case. In fact, I had just received my Poetic Slimline case and was heading into my apartment to open the bag containing the case when I dropped it. It landed hard on its corner, not sure the case would have helped. Luckily, I purchased it with my American Express card so I was able to file a claim. Waiting to hear if/how much they will cover. On the bright side, the iPad is still functioning! Already ordered a new one (two week wait). By the way, the case is an AMAZING value for just $10.95 USD! Still can't believe that is all it cost. I got mine from eBay (no , I have no monetary interest in the sale of this case).
