Kindle Fire Cases to Protect Your New Tablet

The Kindle Fire just started shipping, and Amazon is of course ready with some cases for you.  It seems that Amazon is seeing the Fire as a reader instead of a tablet, at least based on the selection of covers.  It seems most of them are sleeves or book-style covers and not stands.  The Verso Artist Series cases are light-weight book-style cases with covers designed by various artists.  Shown is the Cities case in red by Sharyn Sowell.  The covers have a microfiber interior and patent-pending elastic corner straps to hold the Fire in place.  (I’m not sure what’s patentable about a corner strap, since covers have been using them for years…)  The Cities case is $39.99.

    The question will be whether people are willing to spend $40 or $50 on a case for a $200 item. Right now, I’m thinking manila folder and rubber band.

    Amazon, and most of the reviewers, have been very clear that the Fire is a content (mostly Amazon content) presenter and not intended to be a tablet.

    @Doug Jensen But Amazon also has videos for download, which they feature in the Fire information. A stand case would make watching movies much easier.
