Having got an iPad Mini I wanted to make sure it was protected, so I took a look at the Classic Cover from Belkin, and here is our two minute review.
Get back to basics with the Classic Cover. The sturdy exterior keeps your iPad Mini safe from damage, while the soft inner lining prevents scratches to the screen. The slim design enables you to slip it in and out of any bag with ease.

A Closer Look
Using the Cover
Fitting the iPad Mini into the Classic Cover was simple.
The cover is very thin – Belkin actually describe it as Ultra-thin and lightweight – and they are not wrong. It really is lightweight and it doesn’t add much bulk to the iPad Mini.
There is a small hole on the back for the rear camera and all the buttons and ports are easily accessible.
Fitting and removing the Mini to case was easily too.
I carried it around in my bag with other items that could mark or damage a leather case and there wasn’t a mark on this one at the end of the day.
My only criticism of the Classic Cover is that the four corner mounts that hold the iPad Mini in place actually touch the screen and are not entirely straight (take a look at the picture at the top of the review to see just what I mean). It doesn’t effect the use of the Mini, but it just takes something away from the overall look of the case.
The Classic Cover retails for £17.99, so a bargain to keep your iPad Mini safe.
