Official Amazon Kindle Touch cover fits Paperwhite??

Does anyone here have both devices and would be able to slide the PW into the offical Amazon Kindle Touch case?
I know the PW is slightly smaller, but could you try it anyway and report back? Does it fall out or just look silly?

I am on the verge of getting the official PW case, but could instead buy the KT case for a tenth of the price on Ebay. I already own and love the similar looking, official Amazon case on my K4 (picked them up for $3 and $7 at Target a few weeks ago).

Nope. The way the fitting is done on the original touch cover, the kindle has to have the exact dimensions of a touch. It is not a slide system, it is a clasp one (if that makes any sense....)

Clasp, yes, sorry, I used the wrong term. Suppose you had piece of felt that is a bit bigger than the case itself, and you put it between the device and the case, before you push the device down on into the case? That could help it close the gap between them. Do you think that could work? Am I making any sense at all?

Yes, you are making sense, don't worry . That could work, but I don't know how well that would hold the kindle.

I find the touch cover ugly, which is the reason the only original cover I have is for our KK (now that's a great cover), so I will not try it myself. I also don't like the new ones too much I must say, I need an elastic to be able to hold the front part of the cover with it when I read and slip my hand between back and front to hold the reader. That way I just need to move my thumb to turn the pages and my hand is not holding tight to anything (yep, I am that lazy ).

I tried the KT cover at my local Walmart (yes, I went there on purpose only to try it on), and will buy one if I find it for a few bucks that I can cover with felt and ribbons. I'm thinking this could be a nice project for a rainy weekend, and I would not want to distroy an expensive case for this.

I am not crazy about the colors of the PW covers either, and don't like the silver colored buckle. I am already thinking about how to hide/disguise it so I don't have to look at it when my case gets here. I wish they had used copper instead. Or no clasp on the ouside.

See, I am warming up to the covers now that I have seen real (as in customers) pics of it, or at least the persimmon one. But I first want to get the PW and see if it is a keeper. Then I will decide on the cover.
