How cool is that? It's exciting to see all the new products cropping up for the Kindle.

Just purchased my Kindle and I have been looking at the few covers that are out there now, and haven't seen anything that interested me till now. I really like the looks of the Periscope. May need to be on my Christmas list.

I'm sure it works well ... but I can't help thinking of it as Borg-like.

Is the screen protected enough with that? I like it a lot other than the screen.

Personally, I would prefer the notepad to be on the right since I'm right-handed.

light

great idea. however, the light looks really bulky. the weight on the cover is 13 ounces plus, it will need 3 AA batteries.

like the concept, but would be better with something smaller like the XtraFlex2 light.

... and I want a cover with a custom-sized Light-wedge style light. The external light tend to scatter more & cover a wider area and therefore are more intrusive to others around you.

Yeah, I'm waiting for either a light wedge or something that will use a few less batteries. 3 AA for only 40 hours just doesn't sound like something I would find useful. And, it is a bit on the bulky side.

For now, I think I'll stick with my zipper case and clip on reading light.
