Awesome, I found some real leather cases

http://www.stylzworld.com/shop/bebook-mini-c-8.html

4 colours, and real leather. They're trifold designs so the flap on the inside folds in to cover the sdhc and credit card slots.

Thoughts?

I bought the brown cover and it's a soft leather. The trifold part is hard to protect the screen. I love it.

There are 2 things that annoy me with the Astak case.

1. It has hard to remove the reader from the little plastic clips
2. The little jog/toggle on the side is harder to use when it's in the case

How does this case compare?

because it's softer leather, it's easy to remove the reader from the plastic but still has the same security as the orginal cover. As for the toggle access on the side, I can't tell the difference.

I've got the black cover (goes perfect with my black device!).

It feels awesome. It's very soft to the touch. I only need a few scratches in the leather to give it a used look!

Kind of worries me buying from them when I look at the prices. Buying direct from stylzworld the covers come to about $33 inc postage.

yeah i know. I did my homework with prices but I thought since they were just in Sydney I thought I would get it the next day but no that didn't happen. I got it a week later. They probably just ordered it from stylzworld too.

Now this is more of interest to us Australians (sorry rest of the world but it is high-time we had something to ourselves :P ). I noticed today that the Co Op Bookshop (Uni students you know which one I am talking about) are now stocking BeBook products, including the different covers (and discount price for members). Might be of interest to some.

Dear Sunspark:

Thank you! I purchased one for my private use so that I can assess it for Astak. I got the tan!

Dear jusmee:

Agreed!! The standard case is quite good at protecting and it is designed to hold the Pocket PRO into the case no matter how hard you shake it.

I did note that the clips are great at what they were designed to do but they are definite "fingernail breakers".

I cannot argue!

Tip:
Try slightly bending the cover away from the PEz instead of prising the clips.
Place finger tips at V and press the cover at the ^
Be sure to teep the PEz facing UP or over something soft
