    Ereader cases?

    I was just wondering if anyone knew of some hard cases or soft slipcases for a Sony PRS-350 ereader? I'm sure it could help out Kindle owners as well. The hard case would be about 6"x8", slip case about 5"x7". I know you can use PRS-300 cases and I will try any case of the same dimensions, doesn't have to be for my reader.

    The new PRS-350 comes with no case whatsoever which is pretty poor, even the PRS-300 had a soft wallet sort of thing, you'd probably call it a 'neoprene sleeve' because that's what they call it for PSPs and sell them for about 50p but I haven't found anything for ereaders. On ebay you can get a neoprene sleeve for a 10" netbook for 99p delivered or a hard case for a 15" laptop for £2.99 delivered so there must be something out there for ereaders!

    Hard cases are about 12-15 quid on ebay but I think that's just because they're selling them at a premium and changing the name. If I knew what the standard type of rectangular hard case was called I'm sure I could buy one for £3-£5. An example would be item http://****.co.uk/Blk…180 on ebay.

    Thanks in advance for any advice or deals you have found for yourselves!

    My mum's PRS-300 came with a soft neoprene case, looks like this:

    I'd like one of those too but it seems to only be a pack-in thing.

    She got that official leather cover but with a light in it from the Play.com sale. Usually though they're really expensive!

    Personally I'm after a travel case as described in my original post, something that looks like this:

    The outside is made of tough rubber and can withstand shocks if you drop it.

    And yes, Calibre is great

    Ha, yeah, it's in the flap underneath where the ebook goes.

    I am willing to use one for a PRS-300, they're the ones that are expensive and what I gave an example for on ebay. There's still not a lot, but more than for the 350. I was wondering if there are any standard cases for everything that are cheap, rather than £13+ for a £4 case...

    They're offering a free case for 300 and 600 owners so you'll have two, but still none for 350 owners X)
