Possible pouch for the jetBook Lite

Here is something available on eBay from a retailer called Accessoriescity. They have a 99.8 feedback rating.

They claim the pouch is good for both the jetBook and the Kindle. If the Kindle can fit in it, why isn't it too big for the jetBook?

Anyway, it is a nylon and neoprene case for $8.09, with free shipping to the US.

I've ordered a similar case. It is advertised to be for the 'Jetbook Series' but also is supposed to fit both Kindles. I'm imagining it will be too large for my Jetbook Lite, but I thought I'd give it a try. At $6.70 how can I go wrong. I'll let everyone know how it fits when I get it.

Thanks JeePea. I've bookmarked your link.

I'll look forward to hearing if the jetBook Lite fits into it.

I note that at the bottom of the page it says that it was made for the Kindle. Perhaps that is text written for another product by the same company.

I was looking at this pouch at ebay from a merchant called firegadgets:

It's for Kindle but I think this may possibly fit the Jetbook Lite also. It has a front pocket which may be great for stashing extra battery sets.

Well, I received the case today and, as I suspected, it's much larger than the Jetbook Lite. It's a half-inch too wide and two inches too long. I'm sure it was made for the Kindle and the seller is just trying to maximize profits on his supply of these bags. It's better than nothing, but takes away from the portability of the JBL because of its bulkiness. I might try to see if I can modify it by trimming the edges and attaching some velcro strips or something similar. I'm hoping someone finds a better fitting case than this one.

Well, I've got bad news from Accessories City.

I heard back from them today, and they said that they didn't know if the jetBook Lite would fit in their case.
