iPad Mini Cases Now Showing up in Retail Stores: Video

I tend to doubt all rumors, leaks, and other unverified info, but in the case of the iPad Mini it’s getting terribly difficult to maintain my skepticism. The following video, found via Mike Cane, shows what is supposed to be a pair of cases for the iPad Mini made by the Australian case maker Cygnett.

Interesting, yes, but this is not conclusive proof that the iPad Mini exists. It is entirely possible that these 2 cases are fakes made by some Chinese OEM which then slapped Cygnett’s brand on the packaging. That happens often in China, and it could have happened here.

We have reached out to Cygnett for a comment on this story. I will update the post with their response.
