Thoughts: Hinge for iPad Mini

Thanks to Logitech Singapore and SPRG team, I received the Logitech Hinge for iPad Mini a month ago for keeps. A lovely and timely surprise, especially when I was contemplating if I should get a new iPad Mini case since it is with me everyday and the ‘casing’ was in need of a good scrub / wash.
