    Default Where in AU to buy BookBook (Black) for iPhone 5?

    I'm after a black Book Book. Apple store online only has brown.

    From Twelvesouth in the USA it's $59.95 plus $30 shipping to AU.

    Anyone have any ideas? Local Mac shops in Adelaide seem not to have the iPhone 5 ones yet.

    Looks brown, not black, and probably a fake. Lots of fake ones were on eBay before they started shipping the real ones.

    I can check the Sydney store for you. I was looking at them last week, do not recall seeing black though. If you are really keen I can get you one and post it. It seems that the Apple Store has the sole distribution for the time being.

    Obviously don't go out of your way or make a special trip on my account, but if they do have back ones (doubtful) I'll gladly take you up on your offer. Resisting brown as they whole point of me getting a black iPhone and not white is because its easier to match accessories. Black phone sitting in brown case is strange.

    At this stage, you can only get that black one from Twelve South directly. I will let you know the second that changes.

    Looks like an iPhone 4 one in pics on eBay ad. It has 4 rows of icons and it had the red tab to pull camera out for photos whereas the iPhone 5 one has a hole.

    I bought the BookBook cover for my iPad from StreetWise Software in Hawthorne, Melbourne. They might be worth a call?
