Like Yvan hints at, I'm sure there will be some nice third party covers if the Reader continues to be popular. And people who will spend $350 on a Reader device, probably are a great market for sophisticated looking upscale leather covers also. Anyone listening?.... <hint> <hint> It's a great market opportunity!!!!
I have the brown leather cover and I have no problem fitting it into the stand with the cover on (with the clear insert removed).

I do agree with you that a higher end cover would be nicer. This cover has a suede like finish and is fairly rough on the inside. May look the worse for the wear after a while. There is no screen protection beyond the "native" stiffness of the cover itself.

Other considerations:
- the cover is fairly heavy and almost doubles the weight of the "naked" reader
- the mount on mine is about 2 degrees off so the reader is slightly out of alignment. A nit to be sure but irritating to an "A" type
