Would this style cover work on the Jetbook Lite? Any covers that do?

Hi,

I'm a new user here and in a few days will have my new Jetbook Lite. I know there is a leather cover made for it, but I want something that opens like a book.

Would this style cover, for a Sony work? One with four corners with elastic? Or would the style work but not in that size? Woud the elastic be stable?

http://www.amazon.com/Digital-Standa.../dp/B0035D450U

Any other covers that are reccomended? Will ones for the Sony fit the Jetbook lite? What model's covers would work with the Jetbook Lite?

Thoughts? Any other ideas for a cover?

livingenzyme made a video of what he did.

He took a JBL case, snipped the elastic on the top and bottom sides, and glued velcro to the back of the device and the rear inside of the case.

I never miss an opportunity to shamelessly advertise my own website.

You can get instruction for how to modify the case to your liking at the following link.

Just noticed today that Newegg has the JetBook-Lite leather case for $19.99 and $2.99 shipping. It is a nice case and perfect for the Jet-Book-Lite reader.

They sent me two of those for making my video, one for me and one for my wife.

It seems to protect it quite well.

And if I reverse it, the JBL slides in just enough to hold firm, while still allowing me to see the screen. Gives me a little more support if I want it and solves the annoying problem of where to put the case.
