I have a similar MEdge one for my Eco eclipse (same size as Sony 350). it's made for the Sony but fits the eclipse better. It's quite bulky, but a good case for travelling as there's lots of padding, my only complaint is that it holds the screen a bit too vertically for my eyes and glasses. Mostly I use my readezy bookstand, which is light, adjustable and fits most books and ereaders. Just google it to see what I'm talking about.

Yeah I'm a bit worried about that I kept the foam insert that came with the packaging to use as extra cushioning lol

I might get a case but I really like the feel of the kobo's back (and don't want to always have to take it out of the case)

Chapters Ingido have very cool cases... but too expensive, considering Italian VAT and shipping costs.
My colleague and I have bought a Kobo Touch from Swindon Books (Hong Kong) with quite few shipping and we're evaluating the SkinDigital cases, with free shipping worldwide.

Pretty sad these do not have a pocket for USB cable but... they're nice and cheap.

Not yet sure which one of the two blacks I'll buy. Maybe the vertical one... let's see in few days. Then I'll surely review.

I got the hard book style one. The leather one actually feels a bit cheap. THe hard book style one is nice in the hand and perdy to look at.

I bought this one too, in 'Iron' the colour shown above. It's great overall, but it does add some weight to the KT. I just finished reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo with the case on, and am totally satisfied with the feel the case provides. In my opinion, the KT is easier to hold in this case with its soft texture (the front cover flips back very easily).

Also of note, the home button on my KT comes nowhere near the bottom edge of the case as shown in the product pictures. The home button, and the power slider are easily accessible. There is also a cut-out for the micro USB connector.

The power LED is completely blocked by this case, but that is a minor inconvenience.

Another note is that when you have cover flipped back, the elastic can be used to keep it from flapping around, making it easy for one handed use.

I just bought this one off Ebay. I like that it's real leather, that's one of the reasons I went with that one.

I have been looking at that cover also, but wondered if the closer flap would get in the way of the screen. Maybe it can be tucked back underneath the back of the case?

I did a review here about it.

Cool! One question (cannot heard your comments in office...): does it have a plastic transparent screen protector or the leather container is empty?

No screen protector, it's just an empty hole for the screen.
