The much-rumored iPad Mini may not be here yet, but screen accessories are already popping up.
Known for its mobile device cases and similar products, Zagg is selling a $24.99 screen protector for Apple's allegedly upcoming tiny tablet. Noting that the screen protector is "coming soon," Zagg touts it as a "precision pre-cut invisibleShield" that provides "the toughest, most durable protection you will find."
To back up its claim, Zagg offers a lifetime guarantee on the product, promising to replace it for free should it wear or scratch. Zagg also kicks in a 45-day money-back guarantee, letting you return the item for a 100 percent refund if you're not happy with it.
Cases for the iPad Mini have appeared online, typically at Chinese Web sites. But Zagg is a prominent vendor in the U.S., selling its products both online and in retail stores. The company offers its invisibleShield screen protector for a wide variety of devices, including the iPhone and the current iPad lineup.
Apple reportedly has already kicked off mass production of the iPad Mini, according to the Wall Street Journal, with orders for 10 million units slated for the fourth quarter. Few details are known about the tablet. But sources say it will sport a screen size of 7.85 inches and sell for far less than the current 9.7-inch model. And one analyst who's been talking to component suppliers, says it may even be slicker than the new iPad, according to an All Things Digital report this morning.
