With Valentine’s Day less than a month away, accessory manufacturer X-Doria is showing its love for iOS devices with a collection that celebrates the holiday. First up, for the iPad mini, is the SmartStyle case. Available in the two pictured designs, XO and Love’s Armor, the case has a unique puff-printed cover that wraps completely around the smaller tablet. A 3-D pattern allows the case to be easily gripped. The case also converts into a media viewing or typing angle stand. Magnets in the front cover trigger the automatic on-and-off function. The SmartStyle will set you back $39.99 and can be purchased directly through X-Doria now. And for the iPhone 5, the Dash Icon is a slim-fitting case the will protect the handset from impacts and scratches. The case combines glossy polycarbonate with a puff-printed backing. The two special designs are the pictured Rising Hearts and Fluttering Hearts. The special case is $29.99 and also available to order on the company’s site. X-Doria was busy at CES 2013 in Las Vegas showing off some of its other protection options for the iPhone, iPad, and iPad mini. Our own Dom Esposito stopped by the booth and got a hands-on look. We also recently reviewed X-Doria’s Shield case for the iPhone 5. Will Hamilton said that the case is a great tough option that won’t weigh you down.
