need help looking for K3 sleeve

I used the Incipio underGROUND for my K2 and I'm searching for a similar new sleeve to fit my K3 but I'm having a hard time finding one that is actually made for the K3. All of the accessories say "made for latest generation Kindle" but with the recent release of the K3, have these titles been updated??

And I hate how some sleeves say fit latest generation and 2nd generation when the size difference between the two Kindles are substantial.

Considering vendors have only had the K3 for about 36 hours ...

1. Anything built for the Kindle 2 will be OK - although an inch long.

2. The DVD case mod (where you trim out all the molded innards from the right side of a DVD case) works great! Very few cases are as sleek and lightweight AND protective! And you get to completely customize your cover, too! Leave that "Chinatown" insert on it ... or make up your own!

The first one I made I used a straight-edged razor blade. Timely, and error-prone ...

Subsequently, I have been using my Dremel(tm) tool and a cutting disc. MUCH easier!

Nicely done, Clint, but there is your personal information on the pictures, you may want to "hide" that

Naw. I have been on the 'Net for three decades ... only regretted twice the fact that I am totally open with my contact info. The FBI and Secret Service handled one occurrence back when they didn't know which agency was going to start handling death threats committed via the Internet. And the second was a false alarm.

Amazon does have some covers listed for the K3. There is a sleeve from Built (a little pricey at $35, IMHO) and I have a Belkin cover on pre-order ($25).

Wow - I could have SWORN that the K3 was less tall than my Kobo! I AM WRONG. The K3 is, indeed, too tall for a DVD case! I apologize if anyone has chopped up a DVD case on my word.

That's what the grey K3 case does - deceptively smaller than white counterparts!

What do you guys think about this Nook case/sleeve/pocket? I've seen the picture comparing the Nook and K3 not being that much different in size so I thought maybe this would work. I am planning to use mine without the cover since that adds weight. Let me know what you think.
