I have the bebook mini (so the same hardware as the pocket pro) and I'm using the STYLZ case which I like a lot; however I'm not comfortable carrying it in anything other than a small well packed handbag. Ideally I would like something like a Tuffluv leather cover which entirely encased the device for when I want to throw it in a backpack etc, but failing that I'm interested in either a solid case or a neoprene sleeve with a substantial amount of padding. So I'd like to know whether a case designed for the Sony PRS300 would fit my mini. Unfortunately both M-EDGE and Case logic are very expensive to get delivered to Europe, even if I was certain they would work. M-EDGE’s current offer makes that a bit more reasonable, but it's not a good deal if the case wouldn't work when I got it.

So my question is whether anyone is using either of these two cases for the pocket pro and if so how well they fit and how sturdy they are --

(The latitude jacket looks as if it would be more useful, but it relies on straps across the corner of the device, so the difference in size between the Sony and the bebook might be more critical.)

Any information would be very much appreciated!
I'm using the CaseLogic case for my PEz. It works perfectly for protecting my reader from the sharp bits of life. The reader fits perfectly inside, with just enough space for me to reach in a finger to turn it off or for headphones, but not for both of those at the same time. There is thick foam padding over the screen and sturdy protection on all of the other sides from the pocket it sits in. The cover will fold all the way back, so it's easy to read in the cover. It's also very easy to pop it out of the elastic bands. The outside of the case has not scratched despite a fair amount of abuse. The only thing you lose while it's in the case is the rocker switch on the side. I strongly recommend it for solid protection.
