I got a dodo case for my ipad mini a couple of months ago.
since then it hasnt been off.
I had an ipad when they first came out, and tried a load of different cases, all ended up the same, in a box.
the dodocase is different. it doesnt cover the edges of your ipad, so like the smart cover you still feel like you are using an ipad.
the dodocase, like the smart cover, has a magnet in it that turns off the screen when you close it, and turns on the screen when you open it.
it also makes your ipad mini look like a moleskine book.
