Kobo touch covers coming to Borders in late July

Stopped in my local Borders to ask about sleeves and covers for the kobo touch. Store manager informed me that they are expected in late July. She said this device is selling very well especially now that they are more widely available.

Looks nice. Hopefully someone here can buy it and give a quick review. Would like to know how easy it is to access the power button, how tightly it holds the reader and most of all the quality of the built in light.

The upper-right strap will likely be problematic as the power button is located there. Hopefully manufacturers will figure out how to deal with fitting a case/cover on the KT without covering or blocking the power button.

From the view I had of it in the store, the leather cover has the same issue as the other book covers. Two elastics at the top that intersect over the the power switch. Actually thats just a visual inspection not a take it and give it a trial run. The built in light though is great thing.

The review on the site for the one with the light was dated in April. I don't think this is for the Touch edition.

Definatly the pictures I have are for the touch.

I was there when I took them.

and the link i have listed for future shop is the correct link to the touch cover

The link for bestbuy as provided by PeterT is definatly touch.

As to the review thats just future shop and best buy being idiots and lazy

regards

For the time being (that time being when a cover+light becomes available in the states) I have simply added some velcro to the inside cover of my Sony 650 lighted case, and the back of my new Kobo Touch. Since the KT is slightly shorter than the 650, it fits perfectly, and the 650 still fits in the case with no problem.

When buying a case for an eInk reader you really want one with a rigid front cover that won't deform and press on the screen. Otherwise it's quite easy to crack the glass in the screen while carrying it around with other things in your bag.
