I haven't made a decision about which cover I'd get. Just saying if I wind up getting the with the one with the closure flap, I'd probably get rid of it, based on my experience with the Amazon Kindle Touch cover, which seems just fine without one.
One reason I might prefer it is that I don't like to encourage trademark infringement, which the other cover clearly involves by embossing the word/logo 'kindle' on it. There might be other reasons to prefer it as well, for all I know now.
