The dust has barely settled on the iPad Mini launch, and already we’re seeing the first cases for the 7.9-inch tablet arrive.

First up is Apple’s own Smart Cover. Already available for the existing 10-inch iPad models, the magnet-equipped screen protector has been redesigned for their little brother. It’s available in pink, green, blue, light grey, dark grey and Product Red finishes, and costs US$60.

Mere minutes after the launch we also got word of Cygnett’s new cases, of which there are no fewer than six. The Workmate (pictured, US$35) is made of tough, shock-absorbing material and comes in slate grey and red finishes. Lavish (US$45), as the name suggests, is a swish folio-style case aimed at preening professionals and comes in black and purple.


Vector (US$30, black or red) is a hi-gloss plastic shell with a spark-etched textured rear panel. Armour is super-tough, features a built-in stand and padded interior and costs US$45. Enigma (US$45) is a rubbery folio case with a Smart Cover-style screen protector that can be unfolded and turned into a tabletop stand, while Flexigel (US$25) is a wrap-around, transparent rubbery case that protects from scratches and impacts.

Phew. Cygnett also offers screen protectors in both clear and anti-glare varieties. Both are US$15.
