was asked to pass this on from Becca (the owner of Oberon) they are updating the website but wanted you all to know that it will be up and running soon.

They are taking pre orders for the Kindle 2 covers ASAP. One of the reasons for the delay of pre order is NO one (not even Medge) has a K2 yet. Amazon confirmed this. They are doing the covers based on demensions.. however since Oberon is hand crafted they want to get the K2 in house, and will be recieving it on the 25th. Rest assured they are on top of it.

Becca asked me forward this info to you and hopefully things should be up by the weekend or earlyl next week.
************************************

Pre-order your Oberon Kindle 2 cover. We will receive our Kindle 2 model on February 25th. We expect to be able to produce a cover by the 3rd week of March. It is our intention to offer both Corner & Velcro styles and all the same images offered for the original Oberon Kindle covers. If you pre-order our Kindle 2 cover we predict that it will ship to you in the 3rd or 4th week of March. We will work as quickly as we can. Thanks for your patience!!

Our Kindle 2 cover is made from custom tanned leather that will soften and deepen in color over time. We are the originators of our deep tooling technique requiring both machine and hand work, that is proprietary to Oberon Design.

The Kindle 2 cover button is hand cast in our shop from lead-free Britannia pewter. We provide 100% wool felt pad that protects your Kindle screen and a pockets for business cards or identification info and a memory card. The large side pockets may be useful for storing paper of all kinds.
We have designed two styles for attaching your Kindle to our covers,

Leslie if you read Oberons email under Patrizia's post it says the same images. Great news, I want a wrap around this time. ;D

Geez, guys, remember I am still recovering from eye surgery!

Or maybe it was my excitement at reading about Oberon covers for K2. Now I have to decide if I want to cancel the Amazon cover I ordered....decisions, decisions.

So Patrizia, they are not going to try the hinges at all or a variation of it so we wont have to stick velcro to our Kindles?  With the Text to speech and the speakers being in the back, having a free flowing Kindle can be good.  Ask them for me please.  Thanks

right now the designs are the same but they are talking about adding (not sure if I shoudl tell but oh well) River Garden and Roof of Heaven.. they are in the process of doing a K2 tab on the site. The reason they are taking so long (as explained) NO one has a K2.. medge is going based on specs online.  and they also have the ability to mass produce so once they get it they can crank it out faster.. the Oberon is hand made so it will take them an extra week or more (worth it in my opinion) also both options.. velcro and corners will be available.

Becca and I talked about the hinges this morning.. she can't figure out where they are.. but had heard that as well.. that is why they want a Kindle in house to look at it and figure out if there another option for it. There very well might be... (in fact I will drop her an email now)

  But your right the back speakers are an issue and I didn't think of that.. I WILL get that info to her, but again that is why they want the actual product... I do think the back speakers are odd though.. not sure what Kindle was thinking with that.. since most of us do use covers...

no problem.. I am loving it.. they are fun to talk to and to deal with.. I did drop Becca the email about the hinge thing.. and I am with you. I am just going to wait it out and see what they come up with.. I want a red but I am not a dragon girl.. I do like the sun but fell in love with River Garden... but I am excited they are continuing..,., and if you have anything you want me to ask let me know... they are GREAT responding to anyone.. I am in Public Relations so you meet all kinds .... they are some of the nicest people I have had the pleasure of dealing with, they really care about their products!

Would you mind asking them about the Roof of Heaven? What color are they going to make it for K2? I love that design and several others of the wrap around version, but I am not crazy about the saddle color. Thanks!!!

That's the one I want!

Or, at least I have it narrowed down to either that or the Tree of Life...

It might be a good idea to get at least something to protect your precious K2...

I ordered the basic one, just so I wouldn't have my Kindle naked...

Thanks Patrizia,
even if they just do corners and velcro I'll still get one. I had an Avenue of Trees, but sold it once I found out I was getting a Kindle 2.
Sorry about the cat  :p

Personally I couldn't care less about the speakers, I know I'll never use them...
