Oh yes, I took a look at it. About half a year ago, when this article actually came out. And then I seem to remember Sony execs apologize for miscalculating the Japanese demand (people were fighting each other for a red 650). It sounds like they were not ready to expand worldwide, not being able to fully satisfy even their original markets (which were the U.S. and later Europe). I have no idea what the availability of readers and accessories is in Japan at this point. The covers for a long time were sold out in North America and Europe, but perhaps they have recovered in some parts of the world.

Sure. The covers are on Sony's site. *shrug* Just do a search. The only cover that is sold out there is the PRS-650 "premium" without a light. I don't recommend that one anyway.
The availability seems to change very quickly on Sony's U.S. site. Unless what's available for you is not available for me. I don't see any covers for 950 or 650. If you can provide links to online or B&M retailers where these are actually truly available, I will be very grateful to you.
