It's a very good cover, alright. One thing that it does is kind of reshape the KP. What I mean is that, without the cover, the KP is subtly the wrong shape for a book. It seems to me to be a little too wide for its length. But somehow, the cover seems to deal with that.
I still like my Sony T1's basic case a tiny bit better, though. It might just be that the T1 is slightly smaller than the KP. With the cover on, the T1 fits in my jeans' back pocket. With cover, the KP doesn't.
The KP cover seems to add more weight, proportionately, to the KP than the Sony cover does to the T1.
There's no doubt that the KP cover's Open/On feature is neat.
This is really a YMMV area, though.
