If you managed to order an iPad mini before it sold out this morning, you may have added a $39 Smart Cover to your order and thought to yourself, "That price sounds familiar." And it should, because it's the same price as the full-size Smart Cover for the larger iPad.

The mini version of the intelligent accessory is available in six colors of polyurethane and attaches by wrapping onto the side of the tablet, rather than using the aluminum hinge of the original. For the larger version, customers have the option of upgrading to leather material, though that choice is mysteriously absent for the mini.

It's interesting that despite being considerably smaller in size, the iPad mini version remains the same price as its bigger brother. Perhaps it was just a mistake. No? Ok then.
