I just got my new cover from the Arta Tech store on Amazon, and I have to say, it's really nice. http://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

While I'm pretty sure it's not actually leather, it doesn't feel overly plastic-y, and only has a tiny bit of a chemical smell if I put my nose directly on it--no smell at all with just holding it and reading. It has a textured feel, but not "pebbled" like some covers--just a very subtle texture like that of old leather. The inside flap is soft and feels like suede, and there's a clip in tray that holds the reader snugly, but not so tight that I'm afraid I'm going to break the reader when I take it out. The auto-sleep feature works nicely, and I really like that there are 2 separate magnets to hold it closed, one at the top and one at the bottom--it makes me feel a little bit better about putting it in my purse because it holds it closed better.

All in all, I think that this is the nicest cover I've ever used. I'm sure a real leather Oberon might be nicer in some ways, but I really like the slim fit tray and auto-sleep, so I think, at least for me, this one may be nicer.

Different image on the cover, but otherwise it looks identical to the ones that Booxstor sells. It does work well - I'm very happy with mine.

Actually it's not difficult. You just have to do the first comment from here:

Provided that the mfgtool doesn't crash your Windows virtual machine, like it happened for me, it's pretty straightforward.

Happy to read that. I ordered mine two days ago, but there was no review on Amazon, I kind of risked it

Received my cover from Amazon several days ago, and I, too, am very happy with it. It's a perfect fit, nice looking, and light weight. Wish I could say as many good things about the T68 itself.

Got mine too yesterday. I like it too. Seems a bit too loose in the part that holds the reader and the flap/cover a bit too, but I'm not picky, it's a nice and functional cover.
And I like the nuance of color too
