Got my Oberon case today. I ordered a plain leather cover from amazon along with my Fire on the launch date, but then I got an email from Oberon that they were shipping Kindle Fire covers on the 20th. I wasn't going to bite, as they are a little pricey, but when I saw I could get a purple (my favorite color) paisly (my favorite pattern) one, I bit.

It came today. I like the design, pretty similar to all their kindle covers (I had two for my K2, because purple was a late edition to the line). The only thing I don't like it the longer cord for setting it up on a table, etc for viewing - it kind of hangs out, and looks kind of unfinished. It works fine, but it needs to retract or something when you are done with it. Since I don't ever plan to take my Fire out of the case, it was hard to get it out of site again.

So, was it worth $80? Yes. Because it is purple, it is paisly, and it has nice leather and a cool closure on the front.

I'm currently using one of the Barnes & Noble cover that I purchased for my nook 1e. There's a little space available in the bottom for centering the device better but the Kindle Fire doesn't move at all in the case unless I remove the straps from the top. The straps are tight. It works great.

I might try a cover with a stand later.

ETA: Here's a photo for those interested in seeing how it fits.

I'm still waiting on this one as well. Five star reviews from 18 folks so far. Sounds like very good quality for the money.

Quality IS good. The thickness/size and difficult in getting to the on/off button and the edges of the screen (due to the thickness) are what doesn't work for me.

I bought a sleeve by "M Edge" on sale at BB for $10. It's nothing fancy but well made and does the job just fine.

It is a heavy device compared to my Sony T1. I don't want to add to its' weight by adding a heavy book type cover to it.

I noticed alot of false reviews showing up for Fire accessories from this company. So keep that in mind before purchasing. I would stay away from this company though because I saw them do this with the cover I bought then hike up the price.

Thanks for the heads up. I thought it was odd Kenny has a problem with the fit, yet the reviews say otherwise. Glad I only paid 7 and change plus shipping.

I'd say that is a good price to pay for it. As you can see they've hiked up the price again. I wouldn't pay $10 total for their cases. They are not made to last.

Yep, that's the price I got it at, so wasn't expecting much and I got it.

I found a cover that was under $10 and I have used it for a couple of days and it seems to be great. I was more concerned with protection and utility rather than style. It only comes in Black as far as I know. I compared the case for the Fire with the one for the regular Kindle and they are exactly the same size. I have made some patterns for the cover and plan to make some and see how they work. If I do I plan to sell them for a very reasonable amount.

If any one comes across a easel type case like the Marware Eco-Flip case I have for my K4, please let me know. I'm not looking for a stand type case just something I could flip back and hold one handed. It seem every case is made for landscape or is book like.

Anyone got a line on freestanding Kindle Fire stands? (not incorporated into a case)

My brother and I got the marware ceo model case at launch and spent some time looking around for stand-style cases that do both portrait and landscape. Neither of us has found anything that seems worth giving up the marware landscape-view-only model because it keeps growing on us. My question is... does anyone have information about non-case stands that might work well with a kindle fire that already has a case?

I think if I ever do replace this marware case it will probably be for one of the several beautiful custom leather case options I've seen posted from Oberon Designs or Joe V.'s store on Etsy, or something like that. I don't think I would go that route unless I had found a good stand option since the really high end leather models don't appear to provide much in the way of stand capability.
