Has anyone tried those types of cases that have fabric (rather leather/"suede") inner backing?

Thumbs up
Let us know if they do come off. I have noticed some slight staining on mine and am probably going to buy a more fabric based case.

TBH it doesn't bother me too much since I mine is almost always in a case. I get nervous when it's not.

I got my case (actually, one of those things that make your tablet look like a book) from B&N for $19 on sale. It works perfectly and gets a lot of compliments. I wouldn't get those cheap eBay ones...

I was really close to buying one of the Moko until I saw that Snugg made a case for the Nook. I'm glad I did after seeing this thread. The Snugg case is great and hasn't stained my tablet.

News flash: Cheap chinese knock offs causing damage. News at 11.

Judging from the pics it looks more like rub off then residue. But knowing they used the lowest grade materials I wouldn't it put the idea of cheap ink soaking into the rubber plastic of the NT case either. Good call on the bartenders friend. That stuff has saved me in the past. As has the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser.

I would not use goo gone though. I've had that crap destroy plastics in the past.

I do hope you guys are able to get your nooks looking good again. I know I love keeping mine in pristine condition and would be pretty upset if something bad happened to mar it's surfaces.

You're better off buying the covers from BN.

I didnt buy the cheap leather chinese case from ebay becuase it was cheap, I liked it cuz it had the ability to fold into a stand. The barnes cases dont have that, but I severely regret not having bought one now.

You should have searched a little more. At $40 and free shipping after a promo code, this was worth every penny.

I like it, but its bulky looking, I like cases that don't add bulk.

Ill probably get the black silicone case from B&N, since its the only one I like that covers up the scuffs left by the ****ty ebay case. Im willing to try drops of acetone with cotton swabs, worst case scenario, ill pull the thing apart, and paint the bezel.

It's not actually that bulky. The covers are really thin and are made of an almost rubber material. The flaps fold back and are held together by magnets inside.

It was a really good idea from Barnes and Noble if you ask me. Perfect for working out of my e-book textbooks during class.

They dont have any instock so it seems.

Im really bummed about the blemishes on my nook tablet. Nothing took them off.

That stupid Chinese case did some nasty damage, my nook was only in it for a day.
