I have this one too and it is perfect for my needs. I think I purchased it from a different seller though. You just flip the cover to the back to read, and the magnet holds it open. Looks like real leather to me.

Also the Kobo Wifi looks like the same size so can use the same case.

Like the Bebook NEO we also made a cover especially for the KOBO. It will cost 17,50eu with free shipping to countries within the EU, Canada, USA and Australia. Just use the discountcode: freecover



Available in different colors.

What's the little cutout under the top-left strap for?

That said, it's a real pity I already have a cover, because I do like the look of those, especially that there's a choice of different colours. Thank you for giving us Kobo users more options tailored specifically to our device.

The cutout is to put your KOBO easily in and out the cover. First, left and right under, then top-right and finally through the cut out with your finger the top-left.

They are quite nice actually.

Do you have any images with the cover attached to the Kobo at all?

I love the colours too! But it doesn't seem that this is a photo of a Kobo cover? The bottom right hand elastic looks like it would cover the USB connector, and the cutout doesn't have any purpose for Kobo. (EDIT: I see that maybe it does, though I don't quite understand it ...)

The top right elastic seems nicely placed for the power button. The top left elastic would cover the SD slot but I think that would not be critical as SD cards are not popped in and out all the time are they?

really like the colour choices.

but I wonder about the material used for the lining & the stitching there ~ especially on the left inside cover which could come in contact with the screen - might it be scratchy?

Here is my case. It cost me about $10 to make and about 45 mins of my time. I've also made one for my mother's kobo. I had to stick velcro tape on the back of my kobo but I made sure to use the soft side and it comes off easily without leaving any sticky stuff. Sorry for the soft photography I had to use my Blackberry camera.

I found a harcover book that I liked and cut out the pages. It wasn't all that hard. Used a blade knife. Most (cheap) hardcover books are only held together with a minimum amount of glue so it was pretty easy to find the two connection points and slice them off. Then i glued down the first and last pages of the book that remained. Voila.

Maybe I should start taking orders for Toronto residents.

... very tempting. I'll be in Toronto this spring (probably). My parents live there, I visit them as often as I can.
