I'm not interested in any of these other replacements people have mentioned in this sub-forum so far - the original was slim and sturdy enough (apart from the clip snapping when I dropped it).
The same thing happened to me, this is what I did. I used some Superglue with a brush, to keep the tab steady. Don't think about trying to use it alone, I also got some Gorilla glue (actually had it on hand) and left a dab of glue at the apex of the tab, and I let that dry for 24 hours. Good as new. Good luck.

Does the original 505 cover fit the 500? Same question for the deluxe cover?

No. The 500 has a different cover mounting mechanism. The cover snaps into the a connector on the back on the device. The 505 has clips that attach to the top left and bottom right corners of the device.

I was able to sweet talk the lady at the Sony Style store to let me have the cover for the floor model.

I would be very interested in getting my hands on one of these myself. I don't like the original tan cover my silver came with, but really want the one dark blues come with. Too bad Sony doesn't sell these, as I think they're slim and fold back nicely, and fit well into the "titanium ecaddy" hard box that I use to case my Reader in when I'm not using it.

I put in a request at the Sony parts request web site. Apparently they do sell them, but the price seems a bit outrageous to me. I'm wondering if it is the wrong part, but it does say "soft" on them. I was thinking it might be the exterior case.

Here is the response I got from the parts search request:

Thank you for contacting Sony's Direct Accessories and Parts Center (DAPC USA).

Model: PRS505
Your question was: Looking for an original replacement cover. (Not the leather accesory covers available at the estore.)

The items you requested are listed below.

Item - ( COVER, SOFT (BLUE) ), 321791601, $107.59 ea.
Item - ( COVER, SOFT (SILVER) ), 321791611, $107.59 ea.

You may place your order using the link below or call 1-800-488-7669.
Shipping charges and local taxes will be added to your order at checkout.

Sony Direct Accessories & Parts Center web site - http://servicesales.sel.sony.com/eco.../web/index.jsp

----
Maybe someone else can repeat the request?

As I said, didn't make sense to me. Either this is the wrong part, or they come in packs of 10 or something.

Perhaps I (or someone) will call the order number and see what the scoop is. I would like to get an original replacement cover for my PRS500 too.

It's too bad they aren't more readily available, considering how many people want the stock cover. I'm unsure of whether the other covers would still fit into the "titanium e-caddy" that I purchased for my Sony.. it's just the right, snug fit right now with the stock cover, but I hate the shade of the cover inside (the grey) and am not fond of the tan outside.. maybe I can stitch a different colored cloth onto the inside of it, maybe. Oh what I would give for a dark blue cover instead..!!

New Covers?

I just found these on SonyStyle, and I just couldn't keep this discovery to myself:

Premium Leather Cover (Brown)



Premium Leather Cover (Red)



And, finally, Reader Cover With Light, already available!

Hopefully they are going to seel them in the UK. I will be the first one to test Reader Cover with Light.
