Loop Mummy iPhone case review

Loop Mummy iPhone case review

Smartphone cases are a mixed bag nowadays -- some are great, some are good, and some are just pretty awful. On top of the fact that cases are a hotly-debated item in the first place, it’s pretty difficult for case manufacturers to get the attention of smartphone users, and only a few have done it successfully.

This week it appears that the iPad mini - a device not yet confirmed by Apple - has had details leaked by none other than accessory makers Cygnett in a couple of cases released to a storefront in Australia. Normally this sort of thing would be mentionable, but it's generally a small brand that makes a point of showing off their pre-release device cases - in this case, a big brand like Cygnett would never show off cases early because such a reveal would be looked upon by Apple as a major breach of trust.
