Redesign Kindle 2 Leather Cases from Mivizu lots of colors and design

Hey,

I am a great fan of the Kindle silicone case from Mivizu, so i contacted them yesterday to see if they will be making more silicone cases for the Kindle 2. They told me they are not but will be rolling our with something a lot better(didn't specify what, I'm assuming it is top secret stuff lol)

Anyway, they redirected me to some niceeeeeeeeee leather cases they just rolled out. I know a lot of people are crazy about the M-edge cases but I feel that they add wayy too much bulk. My wife uses the M-edge but I do not see a point on a bulky case when the Kindle 2 is nice and slim. They assured that these cases are genuine leather and it also comes with a book light. I will order mine this week when my pay check clears and will post pictures.

The link is:

By the way I decided to buy the Kindle 2 instead of the DX thanks for the input guys!

Very nice. Thanks for the link. I might get one. I like the look of the cases. I saw other vendors have something similar but always in boring black. BTW, I have a m-edge GO cover which I like and is not bulky. It was made to have a slim profile like the amazon case. The other m-edge cases are bulkier.

This case has one potential problem that had appeared on earlier leather cases (M-Edge I think?) - having a leather flap on the inner surface of the cover - that touches the Kindle screen and keys. Earlier cases with leather interiors, rather than soft padded linings - gave rise to complaints of the leather's color rubbing off on the Kindle case and of insufficient padding/protection for the screen.

Thanks for this link. I just returned my Sony 505 (Yikes, I know I'm gonna get clobbered) in favor of a Kindle 2. I love this cover as a potential future purchase - in the lovely Red Croc! It has been mentioned that the red leather coloring might rub off and I'm wondering if a screen protector would help...probably and if combined with a decal it should be A-okay!

Hey F1wild, I've been using the Kindle black case from them for almost 2 weeks and there was no bleeding at all. I think it is 100% safe and I have sweaty hands lol. I will let you know again in a month. I think the problem with the color bleeding was that some companies use fake synthetic leather and just dye over the leather. This case from Mivizu is genuine leather, I can tell from the softness and the smell of it. Will keep u updated though!

Thank you for this tidbit of very useful info, Mr. Schweddy (not to be confused with SNL's Pete Schweddy). I think I might order one of the covers today - just for sh*ts & giggles!
