Any Kobo Touch covers available yet?

This has probably been asked already but I couldn't find any info. I've searched the Borders.com and KoboBooks.com websites and don't see any covers listed for the KT.

I guess there are probably some third party covers made generically or for other readers. For example, the Sony 650 is only slightly larger. But of course Sony 650 covers are pretty rare these days and it would have to be a third party one as Sony uses a proprietary clasp.

Also, it is unfortunate that they put the KT On/Off switch right where a cover strap will exist on many third party covers.

I had problems too. For some reason you have to keep refreshing to get it to take.

I finally got it to load, but it is one seriously screwed up website. Clicking on any of the covers goes to a mostly unformatted page that makes you scroll and scroll to get to the product info. Maybe they are updating the site and we are just catching them in progress.

At any rate, anyone know of any other covers?

chapters is the main seller here in canada and i've never had poor formatting on their site.
i use ie 9, firefox 4 and the newest chrome and it all looks fine to me.

are you using an older browser or maybe in compatibility mode?

I have the same formatting problem. Latest version of Firefox. I have to keep refreshing in order for it to display correctly.

I'm running IE9, latest FireFox, latest Opera and all were having issues. At first I was getting a blank page, but no "cannot load" message. It finally started loading but still had issues. The last time I tried it seemed to be working okay. So perhaps it was just a server glitch, or maybe the CIA was inside snooping around.

Those covers look nice, but does anyone else carry them, preferably a USA company as that would be less on shipping and probably less on the cover as well? I would also like to know what the inside of the cover looks like to determine if I want it.

Yeah, I was surprised there are no pics of the device inside the cover. I guess many are able to buy theirs in person.

Guess I'll keep using my M-Edge cover made for the Sony 700. Paid around $15 for it when I had my Sony 600 for less than a week. Hope other covers become available soon. Preferably something with a clasp to keep it closed.

Looks nice. It is way to long though for my tastes. Was that cover made for the NookColor or the Kindle 3?

This one is very unique! Has a woven elastic closure. Available in Black, Light/Dark Brown.

I think I'll get it. Would look great on a nightstand or desk. Cool to walk around with. Very bookworm like.
