No Breast Cancer Awareness 350 Cover for us

It's a pity really, I fell in love with the cover, and I feel very strongly for the cause, so it would have been perfect to spend the money and feel good about it. But I looked everywhere and could not find the cover here in Europe, nor the whole package. Bummer really...

Do they offer it in the USA, or is the pink 350 and cover merely pink? I've already got a silver 350 and wouldn't want a pink one, but as I lost my mother to breast cancer in 1991 I would really like to see the Breast Cancer Awareness covers and 350s sold.

I just received that set tues. I like the cover the only thing I don't like about it is I can't fold it behind the reader to read. It's not made to be folded behind it.

My grandmother is a 40 yr breast cancer survivor which is why I got this set.

I got it last Tuesday from SonyStyle with the $50 gift card promotion. As for the cover, it's not as thick as my M-edge cover for PRS600. But it's strong enough to protect the reader.

Thanks for posting the photos. Is the pocket in the back big enough for a business card?

Because first I could not find it in any shop, and now I have a 350 (but without a cover). I do not really want to import the whole bundle. But I guess I'll get over it, it's just annoying that Sony did not offer the bundle in Europe. There is alas Breast Cancer here too..... !

I think the case is awful. It appeared to be lovely in photos, but in real life, it looks cheap and chintzy, like a dollar store knock off. I would be embarrassed to be seen with it in public. That's quite a disappointing blow, since I expected to be able to display it with pride.

In addition to its less than attractive outer appearance, there's no magnetic closure like Sony's other cases offer, and the hinge is in the spine (like the old PRS-300 case) instead of on the back cover like the new cases, so folding it back for one-handed reading is awkward.

I wound up buying Sony's lighted case and I'm quite happy with it, even though I occasionally resent the light's bulk when I'm not using it.

One of my 4th grade students just lost his mother to breast cancer last week.

I wish Sony would make the cover for the 650, too. If I could buy just the cover, I would.
