Question Slim cover, a la Kindle?

Are there slim covers for Kobo Glo that look like the one that Amazon sells for their Kindle?

The normal cover for Kindle Paperwhite is very slim and it fits perfectly around the reader, see this picture (from http://www.t3.com/features/amazon-ki...perwhite-specs):

The Kobo Glo sleep cover instead is not that slim and is bigger than the Kobo itself, wasting quite a bit of space and making the Kobo more cumbersome to carry around, see (from http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho....php?p=2278292):

Speck has some similar covers but the Kobo page is not working anymore.

Do you know where can I find a cover for Kobo Glo similar to those sold with Kindle Paperwhite?

The Gecko Slimfit is very nice, with free shipping if you're in Europe

The Gecko Slimfit looks like the best out there. Anyone know about how well Gecko's shipping to North America works out (aside from costing €6.50 and taking 3-4 weeks)?

this one was posted on another forum, looks very similar to the Amazon official cover.

Very nice cover, but it is not for the Kobo Glo.

It's ine of the reasons I swapped my Glo for a Paperwhite. The lack of slim £12 covers in lovely colours was the final straw. There are so many options available for the Paperwhite, it is a real shame that the manufacturers don't produce the same for the Glo.

Oops sorry my bad.. got confused by the title and the boards, as I have both devices and hang out on both the kindle and the kobo forums. *hangs head in shame*

I think then the Gecko cover is the only option as I haven't really seen any other Kobo Glo covers that resemble a slim kindle case.

I bought this for my Kobo Glo

http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00A54R9D..._31005151_dp_1

Works very well, even the magnetic power control.
