Need opinions on the tri-fold cover for Sony Reader (505)

EDIT: Sorry. I should have searched better. I found a post with a detailed description, pictures, etc.

Apologies for taking space/time...

I'm going to waste some more virtual space and tell you I bought the tri-fold cover for my 505 a couple of weeks ago when the hinge on the original cover broke. I absolutely LOVE it! My reader feels so much more secure in a cover that folds shut (with extra magnets). It has a really solid feel to it, and extra padding. I find the orange interior has really grown on me. Especially when the cover is closed, and you can see the orange edge around the black. I highly recommend it.

The *only* "negative" is that I'd bought a Book Armour zippered cover for when I travel, and the tri-fold, being a tad longer than the original cover, does not fit inside the Book Armour. Small price to pay, since I only used the Armour when I flew.

I wonder if it will fit the PRS-700, since it is only slightly bigger? There are still no accessories available besides the book Armour.

What are the exact measurements of the 700? I'd be willing to measure the cover & see how it matches up.

Thanks, that's so good of you! I've been hunting for a tape measure or ruler with inches because I only know metric .
On the box it says: 5 1/8 x 6 7/8 x 13/32

The height and width seem correct, but I don't understand the '13/32' depth! Do you? I measured it myself, and came up with 3/8 th of an inch, is that the same? (9mm, so one could say 1 cm)

P.S. How do you read with the tri-fold cover on? Can it be folded back on 2 folds, or is the third fold, folded inwards? You couldn't perhaps post a photo, could you?

Thanks!
I think the 700 is wider than the 505, and there seems to be a little extra space in the fold. According to what I can make out in the pics.

When folded up, the tri-fold is 4 7/8" wide on the inside, so it appears to be too narrow for the 700. It's 3/8" deep, and 6 7/8" between the hinges (tall). So the dimensions are good except for the width.

Sorry 'bout that...

Oh, and I read with the "extra" right-sided flap tucked behind the reader. Works really well. I'll post a pic if you still want/need one!

I see the pic looked so promising with space in the width, but if it's under 5", it won't work well. Thanks for all the trouble though...

Pretty close, in that 3/8 == 6/16 == 12/32. In metric, 1" = 2.54 cm, so 13/32 of an inch = 1.03 cm

Cool, thanks! I could never understand inches!

You are welcome. I think the "extra space" you saw was just because the cover was unfolded. When the cover is open, with the spine laying flat, there's a gap that shows up on the right because the left part of the reader is now sitting over the spine. When all folded up, the tri-fold cover is *VERY* snug around the 505...

Sorry it won't work for you.
