Best cover/case for BeBook Mini?

I just received the BeBook Mini in the mail today and was saddened to see that it doesn't come with a cover as the BeBook One did. Has anyone come up with a DIY case for the Mini? Or is there a 3rd party making them yet?

Thanks!

It looks like the cover for the Pocket Pro will fit the BeBook Mini. I don't know if Astak sells the cover separately, though.

IIRC the BeBook folks said they'd be selling the cover on their site soon (the stock v5 cover, like the Astak comes with).

Ohhh, those are awesome! Maybe if enough people complained with them that there is none of the v5?

Are there any pictures of an open Stylz case for the Mini? I would guess they use the notches in the Mini for holding it, but how good is it? I've seen a picture of the "trifold" cover for the 6" model but there's no telling if those have a different fastening method or not.

I'm not sure if I want an extra part flapping on the front cover either. A simple, sturdy case is all I need, one that still fits in (nearly) any pocket the Mini alone can fit.

Jinke sells a case as well. They picture the V3 on their site but say a V5 is available.

I just received my Stylz cover this weekend. I must say, it looks awesome and feels even better. I especially like it because it's black... Now I need to start using it, as I like the look of used leather better...

How heavy is the stylz case? I'm inclining to a bebook mini, but it seems a waste to go for a very light reader if I'm goingto immediately double the weigh again with a case. And is it comfortable to hold the reader single handedly?

I hardly notice the difference with or without cover. It's very light and comfortable to hold. You can fold the cover completely back without being afraid of breaking something, so you can still easily hold the device. And it's soft!

I may have to break down and get one. They look good and if Sweetpea likes it then it must be worth it! I wonder how long it would take to ship to Canada.

Sweetpea, any chance you can take some real pictures and show them to us? I almost never trust the pictures of a site unless i see some real ones

Sweetpea,

What reader are you using this cover for? Does it fit the JE100? I would love to have a different cover for mine that does have the Jointech embossing.

It's for my Mini. The JE100 has its own cover, which I find functional but not really "exciting", so to say


I'll make some pictures tonight.
