Hi,

I have a Decal Girl Skin and a Sony standard cover for my T1. Indeed, after installing the skin and trying to fit the T1 to the cover, I found that the cover edge where it snaps, tries to lift the skin in some places as I'm trying to make the cover snap over the T1.

I solved it by removing the T1 again and warming up the right edge of the cover over a stove top just enough to make it a tad more flexible. I snapped the T1 in again while pulling the edge until it cleared over the T1.

It' worked fine

Attached is a picture (I just wish I choose a different design. This one is nice though). I also wish that Decal Girl offers skin fronts (without the backs), it'll make it cheaper, as the back skin is totally unnecessary with the cover.
Thanks for the info, pics, and the tip about heating the case.

My skin should arrive any day now, so I'll see how it goes. The glare is really the only problem I have with the reader (aside from wishing the background was a bit whiter), so I'll be very happy if the Decalgirl skin solves that issues.

Now I just need to find out how I'm going to find the time to read the 130 ebooks I have acquired...

A new (to me) cover vendor I've just found is Lightwedge.

They are of the type with straps for each corner, and they do list a variety of "compatible" models for each case so they're certainly not custom fits. But they do mention the T1 by name...

Hi, completely new here, but have been lurking for weeks trying to figure out which e-reader to get. Ok So it's almost certainly going to be the T1.

Can someone tell me if the T1 will fit into the Timbuktu kindle keyboard envelope sleeve http://www.timbuk2.com/tb2/products/...sleeve/1571141

If it's also wearing a Soft Silicone Cover Skin Case like this one? http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...pf_rd_i=507846
Thanks! I'm hoping to purchase everything at once. I'm not too keen on getting any decal skins quite yet - hope to enjoy the black and then work on it!

I would stay far away from Lightwedge.

Medium cover fits: Kindle Fire, Kindle Keyboard, NOOK, Kobo Wi Fi, Kobo Touch, Kobo Vox, Sony Reader Daily Edition, Sony Reader Wi-Fi, BlackBerry PlayBook, Samsung Galaxy Tab 7”, HTC Flyer, and Dell Streak 7
No way all these readers are a close enough size to the T1 to make me feel the cover is a good fit. A 7" tablet is a different size. So forget them.

This sounds a likely candidate , many thanks - shall also see the EVA, immutability, also thanks.
They both sound good possibilities.

Their website doesn't list it, but their other frameless cases require a self-adhesive patch to join the reader to the case. That doesn't appeal to me.

There's no protection on the sides either, also unappealing! But it is nice and slim...

The Lightwedge covers are very nice designs and good quality. I have seen them at Staples and OfficeMax in the US and am thinking about getting one for my Kindle. I think they are also at Best Buy. You have to be cautious because there are 2 sizes: small sized for the Kindle Touch and medium sized for the Kindle Keyboard & Fire. I think that the small probably is a better fit for the T1.

Here are some posts from MobileRead that people say they are using the Lightwedge covers with the T1 & 650 and like it. The one post is clear that the cover they bought is the small size for the Kindle Touch. The other post links to an Amazon product page for medium (that may have been an accidental oversight or the real size purchased?). I would find a store that sells them near you and then take your T1 in and try it out in-store. I don't know if they sell them in-store anywhere in the UK.

I have the Lightwedge for my Kindle non-touch & I like it very much. It's a nice cover that looks like a book. I have the Antique Red one. I really like the look and feel. It's nice & sturdy.

I don't however like it for the T1. I find it stretches the elastics out of shape and it covers the buttons on the far left & right as well as the power button. I don't like that. If you can live with it, then I suppose it works for you. I don't like those aspects of it for the T1 though.

I use the one that came with my Aluratek Libre Pro for my Sony PRS-350, but that cover is too short for my T1 - the top inch or so of the reader sticks out.

mCover Aqua case fits PRS-T1

My white PRS-T1 has a Decal Girl skin (in Tangerine Floral) to get rid of the glare, and for awhile I used a PRS-350 white sleeve from Case Logic, but it was a tight fit and I got tired of wrestling with it.

I do prefer a case-less reader, but my purse is dangerous territory. I tried the regular Sony case at Target, but felt that it was uncomfortable to hold - the tray digs into my hand.

So I took a chance and purchased a mCover for Kindle Touch in Aqua, for $7.99. I'd call it more of a Robin's Egg Blue, but it is still a nice case, with a nice, pocket, and an elastic band to hold it shut, and keep the cover from flapping. It comes in several other colors.

Here are pictures of the T1 in the case, and with my preferred book light. The Kindle Touch is a bit wider, but the friction of the case lining keeps the T1 secure - no wiggling. And the corner pieces don't obscure the buttons like most of the other Kindle cases.

Thank you so much for posting this! This is exactly what I've been looking for, and thanks to you I know how well it will work with the T1. Just ordered one in black. Yay!
