No Oberon for the Vox

Personally I think that's dumb. I love the cases, told them as much and asked about Vox. The reply I got back was that they were not planning on adding Vox to the line.

EDIT: Basically they told me that its not cost effective for them to add other ereaders/tablets beyond those that are selling the best ie iPad and Kindle. Appreciated the response there.

Here's hoping a premium case comes out soon for the Vox. I was looking at getting something else from them, but not after that.
I don't know the dimensions of the Vox. Will the NOOKcolor cover fit it?

I was told the same thing by Oberon. That they do not make covers for any kobo product. Haveone format kindle 3 which they exchanged because I did not care for the felt they placed on the left hand side. However seeing that they are charging 64.00 for a cover for a 79.00 device (new kindle) in my opinion is kind of expensive. But that is how much they charge and they sell a lot of product. I would think that a cover could be made for all the kobo products.

They explained things to me. Basically they can't afford to add other tablets/ereaders beyond the big two. And yeah I did get up on the wrong side of the bed today. Everyone's allowed to be sensitive once in a while you know. But here's hoping Vox gets some love from another manufacturer.
