As if it wasn't obvious that Apple would design cute little versions of its popular iPad Smart Covers for the new iPad mini. Well, the iPad mini does indeed get its very own version of the Smart Cover which comes in black, gray, green, pink, blue and red polyurathane colors, and it'll set you back a steep $39. As far as we know it Apple isn't planning to custom make any leather Smart Covers or the protective Smart Case for the iPad mini, and that's a shame. The iPad mini Smart Cover loses its aluminum hinge for a cleaner, all-polyurathane design with embedded magnets that'll of course wake and put the iPad mini from and to sleep, while also having the abilities of folding into a typing and viewing stand as well. Apart from protecting your iPad mini's 7.9-inch display, the back of your iPad will be left unprotected.
The iPad mini Smart Cover will be available to pre-order once the iPad mini becomes available to pre-order on October 26th. See the mini Smart Covers in action after the break.
