The article says it comes with a pouch. My opinion is that it wouldn't protect the screen from damage.

Yeah, it fell out a couple of times until I fixed the plastic tab thingy that keeps the Kindle in the cover.
A newly designed Kindle should have cover attachment designed into it -- the Sony 505 has an ideal solution. If this truly is the next generation of the Kindle, then Amazon hasn't learned a thing from its current user base nor from the many reviewers who have been so critical of its lack of sleekness. The one shown in this article is even clunkier than the original.
