New Waterstones Kindle covers by Proporta now available

Lynnette Prigmore, Proporta’s Head of Product, explains more about the exciting venture and lovely new products available as a result:

“We’ve been working very closely with Waterstones’ product team on this project and are not only delighted to see Waterstones featuring the Amazon Kindle Paperwhite, Fire and Fire HD in their stores with such focus on user experience, but very pleased to see our carefully hand crafted accessories appear alongside them.

Among the selection are some colourful leather and leather style cases featuring famous quotes from world-class authors, exclusive designs from the V&A Museum and The National Gallery and a Sherlock Holmes inspired case complete with deer stalker hat emboss and tweed lining. What is apparent is the level of craftsmanship and detail that has gone into the design right down to the hand stitching and raw paper packaging. We’re extremely proud of this collection and, although definitely a little biased, believe that these are the nicest Kindle cases we’ve seen in the market to date.”

Is the Kindle Fire UK release on the horizon?

Talk of the Kindle Fire UK release has escalated in the last few weeks with rumours abound as to when it will finally hit these shores.

Kindle Fire UK release
On sale in the US since November of last year, the Kindle Fire launch has been somewhat of a mystery in the UK and other territories, despite all the other versions being made available here in good time.

Now, some large electronics retailers have fuelled Kindle Fire UK release speculation by listing Amazon’s tablet as a main contender in the Christmas 2012 favourites, which suggests it could be with us in the next few months.

However, according to various online sources, not only is the Kindle Fire launch imminent, but there is a second version of the tablet in the pipelines which could also be released in time for the festive period.

Of course it is not impossible to get hold of the Fire from the US, which means there are a lucky few here in the UK who already own one. Proporta offers a good Kindle Fire cover range to ensure that they can keep their tablets protected.

While the rest of us wait for its arrival, you can find an extensive Kindle Fire case selection at the Proporta website as well as a range of Kindle covers for the rest of the versions available to us now.

what are our favorite Proporta products…and why?

Over the past week in the office we have been asking the question ‘ What is your favourite Proporta products and why?’

We asked everyone one from the guys in the warehouse to Guy our Managing Director what cases and items they liked and we have a very broad response, a few classics were in there but a few cheeky supervises slipped in there as well.


Have a read and see what you think, maybe it is the same as you? If it is we would love to hear from you…

Marta G – USB TurboCharger 5000

I love this product because it means that I never run out of power during my travels

Chris C – Doodle Pad Hard Shell Case for iPhone 4/4S

Creative, funny design – I remember doing drawing like that when I was a kid on note books etc. It’s more a nostalgic case which I like.

Nick H – BeachBuoy Waterproof case

If only I’d had one with me this summer when I was on the beach and a freak wave wiped out my iPhone4 in an instant. I have now bought one!

Lynnette P – My favourite Proporta product is the Ted Baker Kindle Case.

It has a really nice faux-croc design on the outside and a lovely rose print lining. I always get lots of “oohs and aaaahs” on the train whenever I use it. It’s also got a document holder that’s really handy when travelling (it’s housed many a plane ticket) and the book style means that I can still assume my normal reading position even though I’m now down wiv da kidz.

Stephanie S – Ted Baker Hard Shell Case (Garden Print)

I love the design and the quality of the case. Piece of art.

Ben T – GadgetBag

This is my favourite product because it is very handy when on the move and can store lots of valuables such as my iPhone, wallet and any other valuables I may have on me. Lightweight and stylish too.

Guy M – BeachBuoy Waterproof Case

Pure genius!

Nick W – My favourite product is the Profile Case for the iPhone 3G/3GS.

I bought one for my girlfriend, and it’s really tough and sturdy, so she can drop it to her hearts content without fear. She used to have a case from someone else that wore out after a year, but I have a feeling this one will last a lot longer.

Graham B – Aluminium Lined Leather Pouch for iPhone / Smartphone

Perfect for my needs, sleek, stylish and very strong.

Neil M – Hard Shell Case for Samsung Galaxy S2

Soft touch gives this a great feel in the hands I even think the colours great.

Diego A – USB Turbocharger 5000

think is the most portable and versatile of our accessories AND it can also be recharged easily by USB anywhere.

Hiran M – Proporta Smart Recycled Leather Pouch Apple iPhone 4S

ECO Friendly, innovative in the way it uses bamboo sheet and stylish.

Gary R – Turbocharger backpack for iPhone 4/4S

Protection and power in one.

Debbie I – BeachBuoy Waterproof Case

I really think the BeachBuoy is a life-saver. I took it on my last holiday and it protected my iPod from the salty water and the sunshine (oh those halycon days). But, most importantly, it protected this device from the sticky mitts of my two children. Oh, and as the sun went down it doubled as a vessel for an ice-cold beer.

Max D – My favourite product is the USB TurboCharger 5000

as I can’t live without my iPod and BlackBerry, and now they’re never short of power.

Sarah S – Shine case for iPad 2

The vibrant colours and bold patterns make this case stand out from the crowd.
