New Cases for the Kindle

Waterfield Designs announced 3 new cases for the Kindle yesterday. The third one is actually a gadget bag.

The Kindle Sleeve Case protects the Amazon Kindle with: high-grade neoprene; impact-resistant plastic to protect the screen; a sturdy, black, ballistic nylon shell; and a lightly padded closing flap. A rear, open-top pocket stows items such as the USB cable and ear buds. A subtle grey-black checked fabric trims the bottom of the case.

The Kindle Slip Case sports the same vibrantly colored, water-resistant material on its exterior as the Travel Case; a lightly padded, scratch-free liner; and impact-resistant plastic to protect the screen. In the Slip Case, the Kindle remains secure while still sliding in and out easily. The open top provides quick access.

The Kindle Travel Case is designed with padded, internal compartments to keep the Kindle, the power adapter, the clip light, and any additional accessories tangle-free and organized. Self-locking zippers on a front pocket and on the main compartment ensure that contents don’t spill out. Available in six vibrant colors, the water-resistant case maintains its thin, compact shape, even when fully packed.

Well, these are nice, but what I'm still hoping for is a replacement for Amazon's cover, either by them or another manufacturer. One that will do better keeping the Kindle in it, and one that lets one put it in and remove it with less annoyance.

Keep your eyes peeled.

I was looking at these a few days ago... ick.

What's the bloody point? You can't actually use the device while using any of these. If I wanted a slip cover I have options already, these are just cheap, useless things.

It's early, and I'm grouchy, but I stand by that.

What a waste! I want something I can put on my Kindle and still be able to read it. I was also looking for a replacement for the current Kindle cover :-( I guess we have to wait a bit longer. It is funny that the press release states that the current offering from Waterfield is what Kindle owners wanted....ummmm I don't think so. Try again Waterfield.

My 2 cents.
Greg

P.S. I do have to say what they are offering does look nice. So I'll give them that.

Yes, they look nice. Just not useful for what I'd need at all.

I recognize I'm in the minority, but I actually don't mind the case it came with. I cut the corner tabs off with a razor blade and put velcro inside the case and on the back of the Kindle. Works wonderfully. I'd get a new case I guess if it looked nice - but like most people have said here I'd need to be able to read my Kindle while it's in the case.

I'm with Jiiri. I don't mind the Kindle's case. In fact, just from a cursory glance, I like the Kindle case better than these new cases. I read with my Kindle in it's case all of the time without any problem. I just loop the elastic binding over the bottom right hand corner and the Kindle seems to stay put for me. I'd consider a new case if it was along similar lines of the Kindle, but even more book like:

The tab rather than the elastic closing aside, how is this case different from the one that comes with the Kindle? I see the bottom tab in the picture, so I am assuming that the unit is secured in the same way. What would be the reason for buying this one?
