The flip top ones are the Mizu MiniSuit (aka Vizu Kindle Leather Case) and Tuff-Luv Executive Classic Leather Case. The Noreve opens just like the stock Kindle cover.Ann Von Hagel said:edit: I may be misremembering which one was the top flip one. . . suffice it to stay that I prefer a side open one.
That's what I though when I opened mine, but it wasn't bent. It has a really weird way of loading, so it does actually fit the misshapen looking clips.Chimmer said:I got one of those but when I received it, all 3 clips were completely bent out of place, like a truck or something ran over it.
Thanks for the vote of confidence! I have a couple more questions if you're still following this thread. Does the Noreve fold back flat like the stock case? Is the shade of blue true to the color on the website?Gables Girl said:I'm the Noreve junky here. I have the blue one and the grey on order. If I didn't have a red M-Edge I'd get the vintage red one. I really love the case and it is a side opening case like the original one. Ive had it a almost a month now and have had zero problems with it, no falling out, no sagging and love being able to snap the tab when I have it folded back. I'm thinking a white one for summer maybe?
I'm still following this discussion. The Noreve's fold back flat like the original case and the yes the shade of blue is true. It is a gorgeous Royal Blue, I wanted a blue from theday I got my Kindle and I am so happy with this color and the cover. One of the nice things about this cover is that the edges are all turn under so you don't have any raw edges like those on the Oberon, so if you are like me and hold your book in the area between your thumb and first finger it doesn't rub. If you check I posted pictures of mine on here under the topic Noreve Cover Here! http://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,1737.0.html I'll post pictures of the Grey when I get it too.Jimi said:Thanks for the vote of confidence!

I'm trying very hard to decide between this option and the Oberon cover.
I'm not the only one! That battery cover comes off quite frequently and it always scares me. I hope this isn't the case with the Noreve cover.Jimi said:Did you ever have the problem with your Kindle's back cover being pulled open by the stock cover when it is riding in your purse? If so, does the same issue apply with this cover?
I've had it in my purse constantly and when it's not there it is in my backpack and I haven't had the back cover on the Kindle come off yet. With the strap snapped shut it doesn't move around a lot in the cover.Jimi said:Gables Girl: Thank you for the added details! I'm trying to decide which one to ask for as a gift for my birthday next month.
One more question.... Did you ever have the problem with your Kindle's back cover being pulled open by the stock cover when it is riding in your purse? If so, does the same issue apply with this cover? That's one issue I'd really like to resolve because that back cover coming loose happens frequently and is a real threat to the safety of my Kindle. I'm in the habit of checking each time I pull it out of my purse, but what if I forgot? It only takes one time.
Are you sure you have it all the way in to the cover? Mine isnt' loose at all. There is space between the edge of my Kindle and the strap, I can put my little finger in between the Kindle and the strap. I'm getting ready to sell my Oberon because I didn't like it as much as I do the Noreve, it was beautiful but not comfortable for me to hold.Chimmer said:I just got the black Noreve cover today. Initial impression is I don't care for it. I'm going to have to add velcro because even though the tab holds better than the original, a little shaking caused my Kindle to pop out.
Also, I don't think it's large enough. I'd like to have a little overlap around the edges for protection but it's almost flush with the edge of the kindle, especially the right side. I snap the closure and it feels like it's putting pressure on the edge of the next page button.
I suppose I should at least try it for awhile, but I may end up selling this one and buying an Oberon cover.
