Gelaskins, makers of ultra-thin stylish, artistic skins for the iPad and many other devices, have now got a range of skins available for the iPad mini. When these guys say ultra-thin they really mean it – their skins are less than 1mm thick and add almost no weight at all to an iPad. For an incredibly light device like the iPad mini, that’s a very welcome feature.
Another big benefit of using Gelaskins is that they are quite easy to apply and remove – I know this especially because I am a clod when it comes to installing screen protectors and the like, and even am able to work with these skins with relative ease.
The artwork used on Gelaskins is always gorgeous and includes many images from famous artists – and if you don’t find an image you like, you can also create your own.
I’ve often mentioned here that a Gelaskin was my favorite companion for the iPad Smart Cover, in particular the Dr. Gonzo image by Ralph Steadman. Although the skins can be used for both front and back of the iPad, I like to only use them for the back of the iPad.
The new range of Gelaskins for the iPad mini go for $19.95 and you browse through the designs and check them out in detail at this Gelakins page for them. I think Dr. Gonzo or another of these skins may soon be making an appearance on my iPad mini.
