The OMOTON looks nice. I need to wait until I get the 2 I have on order now and compare it to the one I've already received. If I don't like any of them, I'll give this one a try.

Just got a notification that the Acase I ordered has shipped. It was due by Nov. 10th. before the notice. Now it says it "Shipped Expected delivery: Friday, December 5, 2014 - Monday, December 22, 2014 by 8pm ".  ??? I wonder what they are using to deliver it? It is being shipped with USPS. I have heard of snail mail but that is a little ridiculous.  ::)

 Maybe the postal carrier is driving it to your house?  :P

Bordercollielady, very pretty. I like the elastic corners over the plastic ones. They were difficult to use. With all this talk of Oberons I'm beginning to feel the pull towards them again. I especially like the larger border when they are open and folded back. Thanks for the picture.

Very pretty, bordercollielady!  I thought the straps were always elastic.  Did they change them at some point?

Is the light sensor unaffected by the straps?

The straps on my K3 Oberon are leather.. so not sure when they changed it.  The elastic is easier to stretch out.
And the light sensor is to the upper left of the left strap so it shouldn't interfere.  I can see if you aren't careful and that strap slips, it could cover it,
but not unless you seriously move it up.

How can a product that will not be released until Nov 10. Have over 2000 reviews?

Sent from my KFAPWI using Tapatalk HD

Those reviews are for the PW version cover from this company.

And is the page turn sensor sensitivity the same, or did you have to adjust it?

I didn't find any difference in the sensitivity.. the page turn buttons are completely unobstructed.  The only thing that might change - is - given I plan to push the button with the same hand I use to hold the cover, my hand may not have as much downward strength as when I used two hands.. but so far - I am not finding that to be the case.

After the discovery (see earlier in this thread) that in the UK the ForeFront covers that were supposedly dispatched last week aren't even released yet - which is why the delivery date is a month away - I decided to try a Fintie case.

They were supposed to be released here on 10th November and I ordered one on the 5th. Despite the release date of the 10th, I received an email to it was dispatched on the 6th by FedEx. However, once again the delivery date is estimated for the end of the month and the tracking number in my email is, according to FedEx, invalid. It would seem they're listing goods as dispatched when in reality they haven't even got them yet to discourage you from going elsewhere.

At this point, I think the only seller in the UK who actually has real Voyage cases which are genuinely available now is Amazon themselves. I can't order from Amazon US as I get a message along the lines of  'this item can't be dispatched to your address'.

I'm not a fan of this somewhat underhand practice but I'm just going to have grit my teeth and wait for the ForeFront and Fintie covers I already ordered to arrive. If I like them I'll probably keep both as it'll be nice to have two different colours. I'll still have spent less that the cost of one Amazon plastic origami thingy and I'll have covers in the style I like.

I'm grumpy now - patience is not my strong suit.  :(

Well Oberon shipped my cover and I should get it Monday  :D   But I will probably not open it until December 9, when I get the Voyage.  But I will be sure to post pictures and comments then.  I think the combination of the Oberon cover with the Voyage will be a great fit for me  ;D

You and me both. I've never gone through this before. Thinking back I realize a cover came with the K1, I ordered the Amazon cover for both my KK and PW1 and got the covers before the device. The KK cover was the one with hinges that kept causing the Kindle to do strange things, but it was a neat thing. In the end I got a refund for it and they let me keep it. I ripped the fastening stuff out of both the Amazon K1 cover and the KK cover and now my KK is velcroed into the K1 cover and my Kobo is velcroed into the KK cover.

I used the Amazon PW cover for my PW1 a long time. Loved the fit, hated the weight. When I needed a fliptop cover, I got a Poetic and used that ever after. Much cheaper construction, but very light and wonderful stand.

So now here I am. I ordered the Amazon origami cover in desperation to have something, but it's going back as soon as I get the Flintie I ordered when the Amazon wasn't good enough. The Flintie isn't my preferred fliptop, but I can put the Voyage in the old Poetic cover when I need it to stand up to transcribe notes. In the meantime I have a new Poetic ordered for the Voyage, but it may be months if ever when I see it. If it shows up or if someone else comes up with a fliptop with auto-wake.... Well, as my mother used to say, "If wishes were horses, beggars would ride."

I think it's all Amazon's fault for not giving the 3d party vendors demo models of new Kindles so they can design covers in time. That may force us to get Amazon's overpriced covers, but I bet they get a tsunami of returns every time.

How does the Oberron covers work for the Voyage?? Because the power button is on the back of the device. So how do you turn the device on or wake it up from sleep mode without taking it out of the cover?

My Vera cover seems useless for the Voyage because I can't wake it up from sleep mode without taking it out of the cover and pressing the power button in the back. It's very inconvenient...

Apparently, they're putting a magnet in the appropriate spot of the front cover so the auto wake/sleep works.

I also bought the Fintie cover and don't really care for it.  The navy color WAS navy, not the teal color on my screen.  I have a Fintie cover for my Paperwhite and I like it so much better than this one.  This one just seems cheap.

Thanks for sharing this...I was concerned about that.
Sorry, here's the link

Thanks for this...like some of the options...hmmm....  Although the options I like the best are not yet available for the Voyage.

Yes as Ann also said,  they have the auto wake feature.   But also from what I understand,  because they use high grade marine elastic straps.  You can also reach the power button with your finger, without removing the Voyage from the cover, if needed.
