They were advertising preorders for it about a month ago but haven't heard or seen anything since then.
I really wish they would it so I can order my cover

Well I emailed them and this is the answer I got so I guess I won't hold my breath waiting for one. I am disappointed, I thought they were in the process of making one.

"Thank you for your interest in our products! An e-Luminator booklight for our Sony PRS-505 Jackets is a potential future product. However, at this time, we do not have any information on if or when it will be available."

Well that's interesting! When I bought my new M-Edge, I was definitely given the impression that the booklight was ready to come out some time this summer. What in the world could be the difference between one for the Kindle and one for the Sony?

Up until a couple of days ago, their Sony page said "Compatible with M-Edge e-Luminator for Sony 505 (sold separately - available Summer 2009)." Maybe the person who emailed you was simply mistaken?

Got an answer regarding a query when the lights will be available:

"As for our 2nd generation e-Luminators, they are in production and we do expect to have them available sometime soon this summer. However, we have not set an actual release date yet. Also, I should point out the the 2nd generation e-Luminator was designed to provide optimal lighting for the Amazon Kindle 2 device and as such the neck may be a little long for the PRS-505 jacket. The light will work in the jacket, but for storage purposes it might stick out of the bottom when the jacket is closed. We are considering the possibility of offering a special version for the PRS-505, but do not currently have any plans for it."

Okay... When when they write on the web site that it would be compatible with the reader cover, this wasn't exactly what I expected. Not so great after all. I'll pass.

Can you say "False Advertising"?

Yeah! False Advertising is one of my pet peeves. I was all excited at the beginning of this thread...all ready to ask for a link and a picture, and was considering ordering it. I have the lightwedge, but If I could go back and do it over, I probably wouldn't buy the lightwedge. It's fine for now, but I doubt it will last forever. There's already alot of smudges and specks that won't come off.

ANYWAY, I'm still interested in seeing this m-edge light. Whenever it comes out. I hope they design one for the 505. I'm not too keen on the fact that it would stick out a couple inches at the bottom. That leads to the risk of getting scratched/smudged!

No, I think that's taking it too far. They do say it's "compatible", which, from this explanation, it sounds as if it is. But I imagined a better fit, and I think it would be wise of them to make this clear on the web site - and they might actually do, once they start selling the book lights.

"Compatible with M-Edge e-Luminator for Sony 505 (sold separately - available Summer 2009)"

I always read that as them actually releasing a sony light, not that it is compatible with the kindle one. that sucks.

I read it the same way. It does not say "Compatible with the M-Edge e-Luminator for the Kindle 2".
