So just back from the Valley Fair mall in San Jose after reading this post. They just got them in today and had 10, well, 9 left
I've attached photos of the case with reader side by side with the original case and the deluxe sony case.
The first thing you'll notice when you get it is that it does add some weight to the reader. Not enough where I'm going to get super tired, but I think the added functionality will overcome the increase in weight.
One cool thing is that you can flip the front cover back like you can with the stock cover. That is very cool and will make things easier to hold. The deluxe case you couldn't do that.
Enjoy the pix and I'm looking forward to testing it out tonight
.... actually I think my wife is more excited than I am!
