The cover only holds the KFHD7-32 in landscape mode if kept at an exact balancing angle. If one wants to change the viewing angle, one must use the stand I described above.

By the way, I finished my first full charge cycle of the Kindle Fire HD 7" 32 Gb unit and it got 5 hours and 39 minutes to the 19% level while the Paperwhite got 10 hours and 29 minutes to the point where the battery meter almost registered empty.

Taking the KFHD7-32 down to 15% or even 10% could get me another 30 minutes to an hour, possibly. The KF1G got an average of 5 hours and 20 minutes down to the 15% charge level.

I tracked the KFHD7-32 and KF1G using GSam Battery Monitor and the Paperwhite tracking individual reading session times in an Excel spreadsheet.

The KFHD7-32 had an inaccurate battery meter at first and needed a couple of cycles to totally empty to develop its accuracy.

After loading in all the items I want for the KFHD7-32 I got the following storage statistics in the Device section of the Settings:

Storage left: 22.97 of 29.96 Gb space available.

1. Books and Newsstand: 57.84 Mb
2. Audiobooks: 15.30 Mb
3. Music: 2.19 Gb
4. Video: 44.06 Mb
5. Photos: 56.20 Mb
6. Docs: 12.12 Mb
7. Personal Videos: 0.00 B
8. Apps & Games: 407.99 Mb
9. Others: 1.17 Gb

I still have room for lots of new "stuff" as it is developed over the next year.
