Just picked this up: http://www.ebay.com/itm/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=170715564263

Even with shipping it is still only $20. Considering that the cases on the indigo site are double that, I thought this was a good deal. :)

I thought about this one...you'll have to let us know how you like it when you buy it. I'd also like to see a photo of what it looks like with the Vox in it.

I bought a bookstyle cover and it's fine. I like that I can charge it while it's still in the cover. I don't like that the stitching on the inside flap leaves marks on the Vox screen. Maybe a screen protector would help this?

Already bought. Hopefully it will be here next week. I may grab one of those other covers as a backup. So far, I DIG my Vox. Even managed to get Netflix running using version 1.5.0 as opposed to 1.5.1 (current). So other than the youtube issue (haven't tried getting audiobooks on overdrive but they work like a charm on the audible app). I'm a happy clam.

Given the size of the Vox, I tried a few discounted Playbook cases and found this one by Targus which could serve as a stand at Staples for only $24.97:

(and there's plenty of them for even cheaper on eBay!)

Do you guys think this playbook case would work with the kobo vox?

It seems to have slots cut out where the vox's buttons and speaker is; might have to cut a whole out for the light sensor. The Vox is an extra 3 mm in thickness than the playbook but that shouldn't make to much a difference?

It has and it's a nice hard cover. Fits the Kobo well. Not sure about the velcro angled support though. Hard to get the balance right. Still, it was worth it just as a nice hard cover case.

Ordered from eBay from the company in California. Never got an eBay shipping notice or anything. Then about 3 weeks later it arrived via Canada Post.

I finally got the case. Definitely worth it for just under $20 including tax and shipping. Nice case, fits perfectly and I have no problem holding it and reading.

both of mine shipped on the 29th of November and I just got one of them (the Vox's) today, so just over a week (9 business days) is pretty good. Am expecting the second one on Monday.
