First Official iPad mini Accessory now Available in the Apple Store

Apple’s iPad mini was announced today at its event in San Jose, California. The tablet, which clocks in at 7.9-inches was introduced alongside its first accessory – the iPad mini Smart Cover.

The mini Smart Cover, while similar in design to the iPad’s Smart Cover, has a few key differences. It’s not only smaller, but it has no metal hinge. It is designed to wrap all the way around the device.

Like the covers for the iPad, the iPad mini Smart Covers will be available in blue, green, light gray, dark gray, pink, and PROJECT Red. Each cover will be available for $39.

The Smart Cover won’t be the only iPad mini accessory for long – now that the mini is out in the wild, expect cases from all of your favorite manufacturers in a short amount of time.
