Sony Reader Accessories close-ups

Gizmodo has some close-ups of various Sony Reader accessories. For those who couldn't decide which cover color to pick - have a look.

What's interesting is the LED light - is it from Sony or why is it not listed among the official accessories on Sony's website?

They’d been testing various reading lights with the Reader, and had a recommendation for us. The “Great Point Light” by the same folks that do the LightWedge, apparently. They said they really wanted an actual LightWedge formatted for the Reader, but that company isn’t interested until they see enough Reader sales to make them believe it would be worth it. They were willing to produce the Great Point Light colored to better match the Reader, however. The Great Point Light is a clip on, goose neck light that uses button cell batteries and is supposed to get somewhere around 30 hours on a set. The notable thing about it is that the LED’s are flat ended, rather than rounded, which provides a more evenly distributed light on the page. We didn’t have a dark place to try it, so we did the best we could with a dimmer corner of the room. The light seemed to throw a nice even pattern that easily included the full Reader (not just the page), and it was bright enough to see even under normal fluorescent lighting, so my best guess is that it should be satisfactory for reading in the dark.

It doesn't look like the all-black version of the light is available on the GPL website yet. Thanks for the photo links. The leather cases look like good protection!
