My D&B cover arrived today at 10:30 a.m., a scant 38 hours after I ordered it! It is definitely red, not burgundy and the interior is brown. I think the color looks much better in person than online. All in all I'm very happy with it......even happier that I got it on sale!!

I will take pictures of it tonight and try to highlight the true color. I'll try to post the best pictures tonight as well.

There must be differences in the dye lots for the leather as mine is the exact color as shown in the pictures I posted. Maybe I would have liked it better if it had been more red!

$99 for the cover?

I'd be pretty miffed if I were an early, early purchaser of this cover and paid $150. To see it suddenly drop to $99 would get my blood boiling since it's less than a few DAYS since it was released at $150.

Color me miffed! I think it is pretty crappy, but then I guess retailers count on fools like me! At least Apple waited a little longer to drop the price on the iPhone before irritating their customers.

I would call Sony and tell them that since it was not long after you purchased your cover that you want to have the difference refunded.

Pictures!

I've taken a few pix featuring my D&B crimson cover with a few other red things (including the key ring) and the original cover for comparison. The kitten (Maggie, 7 1/2 months old) is not red but she wanted her picture taken!!

I may take more pictures in tomorrow to see if the red photographs differently in daylight.

Lilly, I really like how it looks in it new cover. The interior is a nice brown as shown in Nytngale's pictures. the leather is very comfortable to hold, it seems a little sturdier than the original pleather cover. It's a little stiff to fold the front cover back when in use, but that may change over time.

On a side note to Nytngale, I was looking at the Dooney & Bourke website last night and saw that they have all sorts of handbags,totes and accessories in the same croc pattern:

Hi MarciaCat,
Yours looks like it might be a little redder than mine - I have found that mine looks different shades in different lighting. Great idea comparing with other red items. Thanks for the DB links - hadn't gone there, but just might have to have another accessory to complement my reader!!!

PS: My cats are jealous that your kitty got to be in the picture.

Daylight Pictures

Nytngale, my three cats are well versed at getting their pictures taken whenever possible I have posted lots of pix of them over at My Cat Hates You!!

I have noticed that my cover looks redder with natural light as opposed to artificial light. I'm very pleased with my cover, it's much nicer than the original!!
On the D&B accessories page did you happen to see the "Small Writing Journal" that looks remarkably like the Reader cover, except for being an inch and a quarter larger in length and and height but priced 'only' at $55? The key fob is $25. Methinks someone noticed the similarity and lowered the price at Sony. I hope you are successful with getting Sony to adjust the price!!



Here are the photos I took in daylight:

I have 3 cats as well! 2 siamese and 1 Maine Coon - all extremely spoiled and priviledged although they are highly unaware of it! Mine cover is more red in brighter light - we haven't had any sunlight recently - I live in NW Ohio where it has been overcast for what seems like years! I'll be in Florida in 2 weeks - can't wait to see what sun will do for it. Didn't get a chance to check out much at the DB website - although I do like the large tote bag - $525 yikes!

An update to my earlier post: I called SonyStyle about the price drop. They were very pleasant and immediately credited me for the price difference. Now I really like these new covers.
