    I just purchased this case from Gecko Covers Gecko Covers for Kobo, Tolino, Samsung, Asus, Apple & more | Gecko Covers.
    It is made for the Kobo Mini but I wanted to see how close the fit was. The quality is very nice. One cool thing is the two bottom leather and two top elastic straps that secure the phone instead of the adhesive we hear will be coming with the official leather flip case. It has pockets for credit or business cards, and on the back photo you can see an elastic strap that holds the cover in a shut position if so desired. The downsides are the lack of hole for the notification light which is not unexpected. The biggest issue for me is that it is a little big. Probably one quarter inch all around too big. Also a little chunky as well. The company is in the Netherlands but I received it within a week of ordering. With shipping to the US it cost me 18.45 Euro. I am still planning on getting the OEM flipcase when it comes out, but this is a decent albeit imperfect alternative that some may want to try. If you decide to purchase one you will find it on their website as the case for the Kobo Mini.

    I think the OEM flipcase will be really nice. That does look pretty thick

    It looks good, but I would probably cut off the bottom elastics. So it isn't in the way of the keyboard and it's easier and faster to take out
