Will the T1 fit old covers for the 600, 505 etc

Has anyone tried to see if the T-1 will fit 3rd party covers like M-Edge Tuf-Luv etc. designed for the PRS 600 or 505? I know that the T-1 will not fit the Sony made covers, but I thought that some of the others might work well with it.

Tuff luv are quoting around five weeks before they will be releasing a cover for the T1.

As I find the 'A' frame reading convenient I'll be waiting to see what they bring out before committing. Looks like I may have to take care until then.

Oberon says they'll be making covers for the Kindle line-up, including Touch. Given the dimensions between the Kindle Touch and T-1 are similar, I'm hoping that maybe a Kindle Touch Oberon cover will also fit a T-1.

Dimensions Sony PRS-T1:
6.875 x 4.375 x .375 inches (H/W/D)

Dimensions Kindle Touch:
6.8" x 4.7" x 0.40"

Fingers crossed.

I think it'll fit fine - the extra .325" of width space won't have the T1 shaking around loose! That might even leave enough room to clip the stylus on the inside?

I've been hoping the Oberon Kindle covers are an option too!

Yes, this is what I'm thinking, because, even though the T1 is taller, my 950 actually fit pretty well in a Nook Classic WiFi Oberon cover and the 950 is taller than the Nook. There's definitely some play in the Oberon covers, and I really think the dimensions are close enough for a fit.

Thats why I'll be holding out for the Tuff-Luv, they normally cover the bezel. If not then I'll probably go down the 'Decal Girl' skin route.

Further thoughts on a possible Oberon Kindle Touch cover fit.

I was putting hubby's T-1 in the new Sony lighted cover that arrived this morning. Looking at it made me realize that the Oberon corner strap system might not work on a T-1 because of the button placement and how narrow the bezel is, i.e. corner straps could easily cross over a button. I'm not saying one *couldn't* make corner straps that would work for the T-1, but I'm not at all sure that corner straps made to hold a Kindle Touch *will* work for a T-1. When Oberon has photos of the new covers, I'd suggest careful study of the corner strap placement before ordering one, since they aren't returnable.

I would definitely say that if one orders a black T-1 and hates fingerprints, get a case that covers the bezel. Or a skin, one or the other. The black T-1 really looks rather awful with fingerprints all over the bezel, they show up really badly.

I know I wouldn't be able to stand the constant fingerprint look myself. I'm leaning more and more to a white T-1.

The Sony lighted cover seems nice enough, it weighs about as much as the reader though! 10 3/8 ounces or 294g for cover and reader with battery installed.
