If you’re giving or getting a new iPad mini with Retina display for the holidays, you’re probably thinking about cases for it, too. Consider the StyleFolio from Speck for a full-body protective case. The StyleFolio has a “vegan leather” exterior, an anti-scratch interior, and a hard shell to cradle the mini. It operates as a multi-angle stand for viewing or typing on the mini. It doesn’t have magnets to operate the mini’s sleep/wake function; instead, it has a plastic buckle to lock the case closed so you don’t have to worry it will pop open in your gear bag. It’s a bit longer than the mini and has speaker scoops built in the bottom to reflect the sound forward; you won’t have to keep your hand cupped around the bottom of the mini to be able to hear it now. The StyleFolio is available in a variety of color combinations, and some models have embossed designs on the exterior. Each case is $34.95, but not all colors are currently in stock. And Speck says the StyleFolio also fits the original iPad mini.
