I am sure they will custom make them to fit the Kobo, I have asked Rogue Theory and they said they would...

Can't understand why the flip-top case hasn't really taken off for devices. They really do make for comfortable, single-handed reading and page turning, allow the device to safely and steadily stand hands-free when you're eating or knitting or whatever. Still single-handed, you can also use the flap to shade the screen in bright sunlight. The traditional open-book design, I found, is as uncomfortable as reading a hardback and the sleeve idea seems pretty pointless because it needs to be put aside while the naked machine's in use.

Do you have a link to a picture of the type of case you are looking for? I am exploring different ideas for a protective cover.

I totally agree. A sleeve is useless when the reader is out of the sleeve. A proper cover give some means of protection while the reader is being used while the sleeve just sits there and is useless. Plus, these sleeves will be a waste of money as they won't fit the reader with a cover once the owner realizes that the sleeve was a mistake and gets a real cover.

As to holding the reader, I do feel that the cover for my 505 makes it easier to hold one handed.

Sleeve that do not fit the reader with a cover are a total waste of money and mostly useless.

Jon, I'm pretty sure he not referring to the standard Sony case. I find the book style OK, and I'm not quite sure how the flip-top stand kind of case would work. I'd like to see a picture of it, and then think about it for myself.

M-Edge has various flip cases on their website for various readers and the iPad. I hope they'll release a line soon for Kobo.
