I doubt it. The dimensions are close to the 505 but the 700 was wider. Someone one the forum has a picture of a m-edge cover for the 700 with the 600 in it. And it looked loose and too much space on the right since the 600 is smaller. If you look at the specs the 600 and 505 are the same length and height and the width is just about the same.

These covers look amazing, but in my opinion, have two design flaws. One, the attachment mechanism of corner straps adds bulk to the product, and ignores the very sleek, integrated, and secure attachment method already built into the Reader itself: hinges. Why not solve all the problems inherent with corner loops by using the existing attachment system?

Also, the fatal flaw: you put the cover pocket in the front. That's where the screen is located. Any cover pocket must go on the inside back cover. Again, this should be obvious, but the Reader's screen is on the front of the Reader. So, when you close the cover, anything in the front pocket would rub against, what? Anyone? Anyone?

As far as the attachment, well, they make for more than just the Sony readers, so it only makes sense that they have some common system in place, from a design standpoint for them. Although, yes, I really would prefer them to use the hinge system in place.
