M-edge adds more cases for e-reader devices

The folks at M-edge have been following some of the MobileRead discussions that have mentioned the Sony Reader leather jacket, and wanted to let everyone know that they also have a leather jacket and a silicon jacket for the iLiad. iLiad owners have had to put up with Sony Reader being in the spotlight quite a bit, so we want to point out that M-edge has twice as many cases available for the iLiad as the Reader. All the more important for protecting that big, beautiful screen!

This extends the case lineup to include the following:

ILiad Cases
* eMotion Leather Jacket (Preorder until Feb 15) $49.99
* eMotion Silicon Jacket (Preorder until Feb 15) $34.99
* eMotion Jacket $39.99
* eMotion Sleeve Jacket $34.99

Sony Reader Cases
* eMotion Leather Jacket (Preorder until Feb 5) $39.99
* eMotion Sleeve Jacket $34.99

Some of the prices listed below above are labeled "Sale", so prices may change over time. According to M-edge, more leather jacket colors are coming soon. Probably including red, brown, and possibly one other color. I'm sure that increased demand for the covers will bring incentive to add to their lineup.

Personally, I think the leather jacket might be a must-have item for many e-ink owners because of the added protection.

One concern for Sony Reader owners to keep in mind is whether the M-edge leather cover fits over the Sony accessory covers (or the Sony premium Dooney and Bourke leather cover if you have one). Snapping on and off those Reader covers is not something you would want to do frequently.

Update: The Sony leather jacket case does not allow the Reader to slide in with the standard cover attached. It turns out that the idea is to replace the Sony cover. That approach has its advantages - better protection and aesthetics, as well as integrated pockets and a pen loop for those that may take notes while reading.
