No amazon cover available in UK

So on amazon UK you can no longer order either a leather or waterproof cover for the new oasis. Anyone know why? Have they withdrawn them because of bad reviews?

Very strange. I have both covers and find them excellent. I even listed a five star review for the watersafe cover.

It is weird! It just says unavailable, you can’t even order it. I love my merlot cover!

Maybe they have so many back orders they can't fulfill them at the moment and don't want any more?

Maybe, funny then that the covers are more popular than they expected even with the poor reviews?

Amazon.com still has the covers and it says, "Usually ships in one to two months." Boy, that nails it down. Amazon.com.mx shows no covers for Oasis.

I have a lot of respect for Amazon but it's odd that my cover went from a scheduled arrival in two days to will arrive somewhere between Dec. 5th and Dec. 20th. The tracking showed my device as having been shipped but then it was put on hold.

Very odd indeed, and an opportunity for the third-party case makers! I'm very happy with my "Saddle Tan" leather cover.

When you click on any links to covers for the oasis on the U.K. site, they go to a page which says 'your search did not match any products'. Curioser and curioser.

On Amazon Japan all three leather covers can still be ordered. Midnight (in stock 18 November), Saddle Tan (in stock 25 November), Merlot (usually ships within 1 to 2 months).
Fabric covers can also be ordered - Charcoal and Sandstone (in stock 18 November), Indigo (in stock 25 November).
I love my Merlot cover.

When I checked just now on Amazon.com (US), the tan leather cover is available in 1-2 days, the white canvas cover shows available on December 8th and all others are available in one to two months.

Nothing to do with reviews. They must be awaiting new supplies.

May I ask how you can know that with such certainty? Amazon certainly can and do pull products with problems from sale.

Quoting /u/Ragriz1 from Reddit:

"I just came from the Amazon bookstore. Rep told me that they are no longer allowed to sell the Oasis 2 covers because Amazon is fixing the magnet issues. Thought you guys would like to know."
