Covers for the NEW PW -- besides Amazon
« on: November 07, 2018, 05:01:42 pm »


Comes in other colors, too . . . only $12; earliest delivery next week. I'm going to give the Navy blue one a try.

    Also found this one . . .which initially says that it'll fit the current model, but then when you read it says "202, 2013, 2015, and 2024 models" . . . . so I find it a bit suspect. :D But it's got a lot of nice pattern options.



    This one has some different patterns as well, but a bit more expensive. Does specifically say it's for the 10th gen model.

    New Fintie cases for the 2018 Paperwhite
     
    If you click on the links, they're $17.99 and Prime eligible. But if you search them from the Fintie storefront, they they range from $10.99 to $12.99 + $4.99 shipping. Not sure what that's about.

    Premium Lightweight PU Leather Cover with Auto Sleep/Wake

    UPDATE

    CAUTION: BAD reviews for these!



    Still none that I love, but the Tree design is nice (if a bit loud).

    This type of case is what I had for the PW2 and what I prefer because it seems like the lightest and most attractive.

    I hope more colors/designs are still coming...

    Slim Fit Vertical Multi-Viewing Stand Cover with Auto Sleep/Wake



    Book Style Vegan Leather Shockproof Cover with Auto Sleep/Wake


     
    I love the "Denim Charcoal" color scheme, but I hate the actual design of the case. If they added "Denim Charcoal" to the Premium Lightweight PU Leather Cover cases (the first ones in my post), I'd order it in an instant.

    I did notice that prices vary, especially on the Fintie cases, depending on what design you get. Even plain colors aren't all the same.

    Tempted by the Navy Blue as well...

    Unless something changed between your post and now, I'm seeing "not fit" in broken English, which I assume means it won't work. What a shame, as some of these are really nice.

    I sent a tweet to Fintie asking if/when they'll be adding more designs. No response yet though.

    If you like sleeves, this one (previous version) fits the new Paperwhite. Its snug but loosens just enough after a couple times taking the Kindle out.

    Yeah, it didn't say that when I looked . . . . I suspect all the manufacturers will start having options within the next few weeks.

    Some more new cases.

    OMOTON Kindle Paperwhite Case 2018, PU Leather Smart Case Cover with Auto Sleep Wake Feature for Kindle Paperwhite 10th Generation 2018 Released



    UPDATE

    They changed the color of the brown pictured above to a much less appealing shade. I would have been annoyed if I had ordered it. Click on the link to see the new but not improved brown.

    Click on the link for other colors.

    Looks exactly like my PW2 case, except this is a different brand.

    Response from Fintie on Twitter: "As of right now what you see on Amazon is what is currently available, new designs and patterns will be added in the near future. Thank you for reaching out."

    Not very helpful. :P But at least this confirms more designs are coming.

    Found this one. It's really cute. Not in stock until November 18th and not eligible for Prime (probably because it's not in stock). The price is $9.99 + $4.98 shipping, but there's a 10% off coupon attached to it.



    Click link for other colors/designs/prices.

    UPDATE

    CAUTION: BAD reviews for these!

    UPDATE - 12/3


    The bad review was not for the Notebook design, which I finally broke down and ordered.

    My review (and pictures): https://www.kboards.com/index.php/topic,306119.msg3757901.html#msg3757901

    Summary: There is a garish website address on the front of the case that is not pictured on the Amazon listing, but it otherwise works as advertised and intended. Very cute and cool case, despite the tacky advertising.

    That would go nicely with my iPad cover.

    Can't find it on Amazon anymore, but it was a TiMOVO cover like the Notebook and Starry Night covers are.



    I have no complaints.

    A friend of mine just got her first kindle -- the new PW -- and made her own case:



    I like how she's combined the idea of a 'book cover' type thing with a slip case.

    That is amazing work!

    I assume the only thing it's missing is auto-wake/sleep. (But if she somehow managed to integrate that into her case too, where do I order???)

    :D Yeah, she probably didn't think of that . . . this is her first EVER kindle, after all. I told her people would probably pay her to make them, but I'm not sure she would want to go into business.  She'd mentioned that the corners were pretty snug and I suggested using elastic on one corner which she said she might do if she makes another -- she said the patterns she saw on line either used elastic or fabric but not both.

    Fintie Slimshell Case for All-new Kindle Paperwhite (10th Generation, 2018 Release) - Premium Lightweight PU Leather Cover with Auto Sleep/Wake for Amazon Kindle Paperwhite E-Reader, Jungle Night

    Very cheaply made. The part which is supposed to securely hold the paperwhite doesn't really fit the device. It doesn't reach around the edge so the device pops out very easily.

    Closing the cover doesn't shut off the device as described, possibly because there is a significant over-lap so the edge of the cover extends about 1/8" past the device.

    This just doesn't fit well, which is very disappointing for a higher-end off-brand cover. I'm sending it back.

    I assume it applies to all of the covers in that Fintie line. Click on the link to see the others.

    I wonder if the people bought the wrong one for the device they have? Or the manufacturer sent the wrong one? Maybe rushing to satisfy demand. :(

    I got this one:

    I got Navy blue, however. It's due to be delivered on Saturday. It looks like one person has written a review and they're happy with it. I'll certainly report back when I get mine.

    I've had none official covers in the past, particularly Fintie ones, and I've generally been very happy with them. It may be that in the rush to get them on the market and make the most of the inevitable high demand, corners have been cut in the manufacturing process.

    So far as I can see none of these new covers are available yet in the UK, so I'll be interested to hear what you all think of them.

    I thought Id enjoy reading this Kindle without a cover, but I dont. I liked it with the voyage, but I think thats because of the curve on the back. Do they make cases that are just for the back? Id like to bulk up the Kindle a little for holding, but I dont want an open/shut cover.

    Unless its a cover that the front magnets completely to the back when opened. I dont like the front flapping when I hold it open.

    My ACdream cover arrived today -- well ahead of when promised so Yay!

    Fits the PW4 perfectly. Has a nice feel to it. Auto wake/sleep works fine. So I can wholeheartedly endorse it. :)

    This was the solid color -- Navy Blue -- my past experience is that the designs that are printed are more 'plasticky' feeling vs the near leather feel of this one.

    Can you take a pic of your case? I'm strongly considering ordering the same color.

    Speaking of colors, major bait-and-switch on this one...

    OMOTON Kindle Paperwhite Case 2018, PU Leather Smart Case Cover with Auto Sleep Wake Feature for Kindle Paperwhite 10th Generation 2018 Released


     
    They changed the color of the brown pictured above to a much less appealing shade. I would have been annoyed if I had ordered it. 

    What the same listing shows now:



    Not cool!

    I was thinking about getting the blue color from this set of cases, but now I'm wondering if I'll even get the same shade of blue that's currently shown.

    The color is a darker blue than it appears on Amazon . . .that one to me is approaching royal blue. But it is quite nice.  I'll take a picture tomorrow when there's daylight so you can get a good feel for it.

    I have a MOKO case for my Oasis2, and have been quite happy. I have not seen any yet for the PW4. I will hold out a little bit, but if a MOKO does not show up, I will probably get the one Ann has ordered.

    I found these MOKO cases:

    MoKo Case Fits Kindle Paperwhite (10th Generation, 2018 Releases), Premium Vertical Flip Cover with Auto Wake/Sleep Compatible for Amazon Kindle Paperwhite 2018 Tablet

    This is a completely different style - not sure what to think of it yet.



    Click on the link for more colors. There are several for this style of case.

    The color is a darker blue than it appears on Amazon . . .that one to me is approaching royal blue. But it is quite nice.  I'll take a picture tomorrow when there's daylight so you can get a good feel for it.

    Thanks!!! Looking forward to it! :D
