Thanks for the review, pomlover. It's a little disappointing to hear that, first, it was made in China and second, that it was almost like the stock case. From your review I think I'll stick with my black leather case.

DB cover arrived today

Hi all,
Received my DB cover today - the burgundy/brown one. It is very pretty. However, the quality is not significantly different from my current pink leather cover and there are no internal pockets for an id card, boarding pass like the pink one. All in all I am disappointed - don't know what I was expecting for sure, but for $150 I thought it would be more than it is. Oh well......

I'm disappointed to hear there are no interior pockets too, Nytngale. I was really hoping the interior would be similar to the leather covers Sony offer. I don't care for Sonny's limited choice of pink or black. I really wish they had a red cover for the 505 like the one they still offer for the 500.

Pictures!

And, on the spectrum from red to brown, where does the crimson land? I prefer brown and my red/green color blindness might just get me there if it isn't fire-engine red.

And as to texture, is it more slick/vinyl or... mmm... soft/rough (not quite sure how to describe it)?

Yes, pictures pretty please! I really want to see it 'in action' as it were. How does it look with the blue reader. Also how does it compare to the original cover protection-wise?

Will attempt to send pics

Okay - will try to send pics - not very good at that. The cover is textured. The interior is a disappointing brown that doesn't really make a nice contrast to the reader.

Wow - glad that worked. The color is true. The textured surface is a combo of smooth and definite texture where the pattern lines are. The interior is a little darker than actual. Hope this is helpful.

Thanks for the pics! The color is very nice; definitely has a reddish tone. I wish that it had inside pockets.

What is it like protection-wise? Does it have a sturdy feel to it in comparison to your other covers?

Color me disappointed overall . For $150 I expected better features. I'm gonna wait and see if the price goes down any before buying one.

I really miss the inside pockets too. As far as the sturdiness - it is not any heavier than my other covers and thus no improved protection. I would have definitely waited had I seen this in person. I am very disappointed as well - the price for vanity I guess.

Well....it would tie in nicely with my D&B fabric purse trimmed in what appears to be the same color!! I'm sincerely tempted!!

Aforementioned purse is sitting next to me whispering "Buy it......buy it....buy it...."
