I really want the Red Ginkgo, but I should wait and give my love the opportunity to give it to me as a b-day or Christmas gift. For now, I'm looking at the Mivizu Red Croc one on Amazon. I'd love to know if anyone has this and what adventages it has over an M-Edge. I can get the less expensive one now...since I basically gifted myself the Kindle (1/2 b-day gift).

Does anybody actually have one of these yet and, if so, could they post a picture of it with the cover open so that I can see what's meant by the fact that the corner straps obscure some of the buttons? (The Oberon site still does not show this when clicking on the picture...)

P.S. Green World Tree for me. I'm guessing this colour looks better than the same thing in taupe. (It's a bit annoying that they don't let you see it with more than one colour choice.)

Oberon emailed me back that the pictures of the interior should be up by this weekend.

I wish we could see the designs in the various colors, too. I wish we could order them in different colors than what's offered. What I *really* want is the Tree of Life or Roof of Heaven in Red, but I think I may go for Sky Dragon in Red. I *really* want a Red cover....

That Mivizu one looks nice. I don't know if I could be patient and wait till December to get the Oberon one though!!

It looks like a mix of the Tuff Luv case and an M-Edge executive...

Covers the majority of the face like a Tuff Luv, but opens like a book (rather than easel) like the M-Edge. Interesting. I've never seen these before.

However, I'd still like to see a picture to see that exactly.

If nobody has done it by the time I get my Tree Of Life, I will post pics, but being in the UK it will take a little longer for dispatch plus clearing customs.

More info and photos. I like what I see and looks like it will make me a good birthday present (2 weeks).

They do look good! So it looks like, for the 505, the upper-left-hand-corner strap partially covers the power slide button, but that's the same for the M-edge executive, and the button works fine, no problems. I don't have a 700, so I wonder what's covered for that?

Now all I have to decide is which one to buy! Tree of Life or Red? Tree of Life or Red? Decisions, decisions!

There appear to be two models of cover used for the photographs. Look at the main picture of the opened cover on the 505 - the elastic corner strap is in the top right. Then look at the close-up shots of the top of the 505 and you will see it has moved to the top left corner.

Um, what close-up shots of the top of the 505?
