I was looking for an inexpensive case for my iPad Mini whilst I searched out the "dream" case for it but it's quite possible I got both at the same time. This is the case I purchased..... It is a clear plastic (polycarbonate) rear shell with what looks exactly the same as a Smart Cover front. It arrived this morning and I took some pictures of it. This is the rear view..... Front view...... With cover folded back to tilt iPad....... And a side on view to show that it adds almost no bulk to the Mini...... All in all I am pretty pleased with it, it also came with a stylus, screen protector and micro fibre screen cleaning cloth. All of this for under Â£10 is really good value. Time will tell as far as quality goes but for now, I'm a happy bunny!
