Zagg ‘iPad Mini Screen Protector’ will run you $24.99 + a little faith

Zagg, a well-respected iOS device case and accessories maker, unveiled its “iPad Mini Screen Protectors” this weekend. We have seen no shortage of iPad mini cases from third-party manufacturers; however, with the possible exception of these cases from Devicewear, no established/reputable Apple accessories maker has announced iPad mini products

Apple is expected to announce the iPad mini at an event later this month with the actual launch of products expected to come shortly after, perhaps in the November timeframe.

Zagg does not offer any iPad mini mockups, but it does offer this:

The iPad Mini is another amazing Apple product, and ZAGG is here to help you protect that product. The iPad Mini screen protectors by ZAGG will keep your Mini new and clean.

Oh, Zagg.

Two website screenshots are below (Thanks, Alex&Ross!).

Excellent iPad Mini renders

Designer Martin Hajek (via Gizmodo) posted stunning renders of the upcoming iPad mini based on recent rumors. Hajek gave us a look at how the 7.85-inch screen may look and introduces a new concept: colored backs, just like the new iPod touch. As you can see in the gallery below, this designer did a very good job. Apple should have no problem stealing some 7-inch marketshare away from the Kindle Fire, if these renders are anything like the real deal.

Now we will just have to wait until what most say will be mid-October to hear the official word, straight from Apple. Hajek is offering a 3D model based off rumors on Turbosquid, if your itching finger just cannot wait.

Bonus: Check out our case renders.

Like stealing an iPhone from a baby…

This bloke found a 20-month-old watching Barney on an iPhone and apparently thought it would be better in his pocket.

“He’s followed me into that shop; to think he has targeted my daughter is disgusting. “Everyone is absolutely disgusted. Her dad was really angry and upset.”

The robbery happened in Ormskirk, Lancs, when Danielle took her daughter into Hype clothes store at around midday on 22nd September.

Police believe the thief may have been with a female accomplice and followed the mother and daughter in after spotting the toddler holding the smartphone outside.

Cops are now appealing for anyone who recognises the man to get in touch.

He was wearing glasses, had longish straight greying dark hair and was wearing a light jacket with dark inner hood and light-coloured trousers.

West Lancashire inspector Andy Willis said: “This is a despicable offence where it appears that the suspect has deliberately targeted a child knowing the crime would be relatively easy to commit.

“I would urge anyone with any information to contact PC 659 Holdsworth on 101 and ask for Lancashire Police or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.”

Also, maybe keep a better eye on your kid (/iOS devices).



As predicted yesterday, Google’s Street View is now available on Mobile Safari and Chrome on iOS devices. Having a quick look around, the service is very fluid, especially for a web page, and the quality is superb with graphics that really look solid on a Retina display.

Perhaps Apple should make a “pop-out” service that lets you open a Street View web page from within the new iOS expand full story

Poll: What will be the entry price of the iPad mini?

The iPad mini is starting to seem like a lock, as we already seemed to have locked down the 7.85-inch 1,024-by-768-pixel display. But, what will the base price of this thing be? Will Apple try to hit Google and Amazon’s $199 price points or will Apple’s historically huge margins get in the way? Will Apple’s iCloud help keep its storage requirements down? Will Apple include some iTunes credit as Google and Amazon do? Keep in mind: the new 4-inch Retina iPods start at $299. Tell us what you think (we should have more information shortly).
