I love my Kindle. Totally hooked. I'm so glad I got the skin (Crest) and the M Edge Go cover.

But...

I want more.

I am also addicted to my iPhone. It MUST be near me at all times. Here's what I want. A nice leather cover for my Kindle that has a pocket on the front for my iphone. I can't be the first person who has had this idea, right? Does this exist? Am I too demanding?

I've had the idea:  a Kindle case that has a pocket sized for a phone.  I'd also want a pocket sized for reading glasses.  :D  Never seen it but if you discover one let us know!!  ;D

Sounds like a good idea, but i was carring my iphone and my kindle in the same hand, both showed full battery, and I had whispernet on. I don't know what happened but with in seconds my iphone battery started draining went to that big red battery on the screen and was EMPTY. Before I had picked them up I had the phone on the charger and it showed a full charge. I had to plug it back in, give it a couple minutes, then restart it, and it had to completely recharge. I have no clue why, but boy did I sweat it  :eek: .  I haven't carried them in the same hand since  8) , and it hasn't happened again.  Anyone got any ideas why that would have happened?

Red,, I put my Iphone on top of my Kindle (in a case though) all the time and have never had a problem with battery drain.. sounds odd!

Also I think on the cover that would drive me a little crazy since I tend to fold my cover back and if I didn't then the weight on the front of it open may be heavy... I like the concept though..

.. I DID Find something similar in my local booksstore in the bible section.. it ran about 20 bucks. it held my kindle with cover and the phone. here is the photo.. I know you might have have this exact thing in mind.. and this is a BRIGHT RED.. the colors look a little dull since I took it in my kitchen with my phone

Patrizia, it surprised me too, I carry mine in my purse near each other and never had a problem. But usually the whispernet is off.  It hasn't happened again, but it freaked me out, of course I was testing my kindle to make certain it wasn't injured while the iphone charge  :D

Wow thats wild.. I have never had that issue and My Iphone is always on top of my case.. and like you whispernet is off.. how odd!!!  The ONLY time I had a problem was once I was making a call, whispernet was on and they were close together (I had earbuds in and the phone was on top of the Kindle case) and I had a slight hum.. when I turned whispernet off it was fine.. but never had a battery drain

This is my favorite bag, although I just bought a new one in a brighter, summer color. It has a pocket on the outside that is perfect for my iphone and the inside is large enough to hold my Kindle (in an Oberon cover) wallet, tissues, and all the other stuff commonly found in a purse. Healthy back bag from LL Bean in the small size. Works just dandy.

Pouches for K, Phones, Ipods and other "Purse stuff"!

bought a cute pearl leather cross over at Macy's a while ago too.. here is that picture (dog not included but for some reason if I get out a camera he wants to be in front of it.. has no idea what it does but he likes it.. go figure.. LOL) anyway as you can see LOTS of options... this one fits the kindle with oberon cover perfectly!!!! with the front pocket and a small interior pocket as well

I was always a bit of a klutz, but since I became ill it's 100x worse. At least now I have an excuse! :D Once I realized that I couldn't guarantee the safety of anything I held in my hands on a bad day, I started using my Borsa Bella travel bag to carry my Kindle & iPhone around the house. Obviously, it's not made of leather, but I'm pretty sure you can find something similar.

The only cover I've seen with a pocket so far also isn't leather: CaseCrown Double Memory Foam Pouch Case With A Front Pocket For Kindle 2 It's not a book style cover though, more like a protective case than a reading cover.

That actually gives me an Idea.. I love Borsa bella, why not ask Melissa is she can do a case for you.. she has done a custom one for me in the past.. might be worth the inquiry.

Borsa Bella's travel bag for Kindle fits the Kindle in the main pocket, and my iPhone and Oberon card holder in the front pocket. I'm sure it would fit an iPhone and a pair of reading glasses. There's probably even enough room for a booklight.

Now THAT is a great idea and I bet a lot of people would buy them.

Is  'cross body travel case' a sort of code for man-purse? Not to be a jerk, but that's sort of what it sounds like.

No, not really. Sorry. Actually, I just bought one today at Dillard's. I wanted something for traveling that would hold the Kindle and not be too big. I got this one from Fossil. You can really see all the pockets, but there's a space for the K2 under the flap. There's four pockets, plus the zippered opening at the top.

Cross body bags have much longer straps that you can put over your head and wear it from one shoulder, across the chest, to the other side. Hence, "cross body". That means your hands can be free, and it's less likely to fall off the shoulder. Great for sightseeing.

Now there may be some for guys too.

Got it. I thought that the marketers might have come up with that term in order to not make them gender neutral. My bad.
