Oberon Covers

Would a Oberon cover made for a K3 fit a Kobo Wifi? The covers on the Oberon site are gorgeous!

You could check the dimensions of the Kobo against those of the K3, or you may want to consider what I did. I bought a Nook (original) and an Oberon cover, then decided the Nook wasn't for me. But I loved the cover, so when I bought my 3rd generation Kindle, I modified the cover to fit the K3. Of course, it helps that the K3 is smaller than the Nook. Here are the results:



Admittedly, my stitching (I had to use a leather awl) is not up to Oberon's standards, but it proved serviceable:



I added a wrist strap (from a camera that's no longer serviceable) to keep it from dropping on the floor should I fall asleep while reading.



As you can see, the outside is still all Oberon.



By the way, if you're wondering where those numbers came from above the keyboard, that's a decal a friend made for me.

From the picture it looks like the strap on the upper right corner is perilously close to the Touch's power slider but it may work with Wi-Fi edition.

Keep in mind that my Oberon was a Nook cover that I adapted for a Kindle 3. I have no idea how a Kindle 3 Oberon cover would fit a Kobo. The official K3 cover is very different from my modified Nook cover. I was just showing those pictures as a possibility of something that may work for a Kobo.
