Any interest in seeing the Burnt Orange cover?

I got one without the light and can take pics tonight when I get home if anyone is interested in seeing the color in real life.

Here are two from my cell phone camera. Will take some better shots later. This is pretty true to the color though.

I was expecting it to be a brighter orange, but it looks more tan.
I debated on this or the green one and ended up with green, which is a proper bright green, which is what I was after. This orange one is more sedate than shown on Amazon pics, so thanks for showing us.

Very, very nice I can see me getting another cover soon, loving these colours.

Very nice. With the wife claiming ownership of mine when it arrives (ordered with a black cover) I demanded to be given permission (thanks Peter Griffin) to buy myself a K3 (for a second time), and will get a cover that isn't black to easily identify whose is whose. I'm leaning towards the Orange or the Green.

Anyone able to say whether the coloured covers show dirt and scuff marks easier than the black? Apparently with the stylzworld covers the green really shows the dirt. Alternatively, any suggestions on a cleaning agent for these covers? I assume they are fake leather?

I always buy green if it's an available color. I have a green 120G WD USB drive, for example. The Amazon cover I bought is what I think of as "apple green". A little bit brighter than I expected, but quite a happy color.

Flash off.


Flash on.

Included some white and black below to let you see how those colors look on your monitor to judge. I really think it's a unique, beautiful cover.

Looks good!

How is the weight of the cover? I gave up on the lighted one because it's as heavy as the Kindle itself.

On my digital kitchen scale the weights are as follows:

Amazon cover: 6.0 oz.
Kindle 3G: 8.1 oz.
Total together comes to 14.2 oz. (must be rounding)

Mass market paperback that was handy: 12.3 oz.

Nope, real leather so far as I can tell, really stitched to the innards too. I'll speak up for the Chocolate Brown since it is nearly as dark as the black and looks quite nice with the deep gray of the lining and Graphite Kindle.

Can we get photos of the chocolate brown? Did anyone post them yet?

That burnt orange looks great!

I like that orange, too. All this new K3 fuss isn't helping my resolve one bit, you know. (I could just stay out of this forum section, but where would be the fun in that?)
