Thank you for checking Xendula. I contacted the vendor, Googleproducts, and they agreed to send me a replacement, now just waiting for it to arrive.

I got one of these (in purple) from ebay last week whilst I am waiting for my Oberon.
Does the job. Not as cheap as other covers mentioned here but, being in the same country as the seller means that I ordered on Monday evening and received it on Wednesday though I see they've now got a note saying they're away for a month!

Yolina, there was actually some interest in that case on this thread, but the seller only ships to the UK, so you are one of the few here who can even get her hands on one. I wouldn't mind one of those myself, if I didn't already have two cases.

Oberon. Sigh.

If they'd only make dedicated slot-in cases instead of using those horribly ugly elastic straps (and using an entire video to explain a bungee cord...), then I'd buy my products to fit their cases, instead of the other way around.

Beautiful cases, with the ugliest retaining mechanism ever. Pity, that.

^ Ditto! If they could add the nice leather covers to a plastic molded back like the official case and the Googleproduct one, and add auto-wakep, I would not hesitate to buy one.

That's a bit of a shame that they only ship to the UK. It's quite nice, though it certainly doesn't feel like leather, not even of the PU kind! But hey, cheap enough, nice colour and, for me, only temporary anyway. Bonus (as far as I am concerned): no branding on it - for some reason, I hate branding, it just irritates me.

Edit: and yes I would love an Oberon with a moulded back like the Amazon cover. The straps don't bother me at all though, what I really don't like is the slip-in type covers! (sorry Katsunami )

Auto-wake-up could be added by them in 10 seconds flat. Just sow a magnet under the felt on the lid.

Snap retaining instead of slot-in would be fine as well.

I assume they don't do this because now their cases work for multiple devices.

It won't let the reader slip out and even has a plastic piece between the inner and outer lining of the case to help protect the screen.
I created an account just to thank you for that link. Ever since I got my KPW two weeks ago I've been looking for a sleeve that has a hard insert to protect the screen. The one you linked to is exactly what I've been looking for, thanks!

Now the dilemma is in picking a colour...

You're quite welcome. My cover is black which does work well as a neutral color. I don't know how the other colors look personally but the one I have is a bit silvery black in the light.

Add to that being able to choose the colour/design combination you'd like and I'd buy one too. They are beautiful but not having the molded back, sleep/wake function and their insistence in only allowing certain colours with certain designs, (no, their designers don't know what looks best in my eyes), means that unfortunately I will never consider buying from them.

Oh, and that too, indeed. They have some designs that I'd really like to have on a cover, but not in the color chosen by them.

That's a strange decision on their part. I didn't even know, because the only time that I looked at their covers they had the corner straps and that was enough to put me off. BTW, they purposely do not show any pictures of the iPad covers opened - they must know how people feel about the corners.
Maybe they are a very small company that cannot afford to customize their covers for individual devices, for fear they'll sit on stock?

To avoid that, they could make them on demand, like Noreve and KleverCase do.
