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.

Best Kindle Cover Options for You

Find the right Kindle cover and you won’t be sorry later on. For such a precious bit of tech that is taken all over the place by its owners, you could avoid damaging or even breaking your e-reader just by picking out an effective Kindle 4 cover. Get all the facts and suggestions you’ll ever need with our nifty guide to selecting the best Kindle 4 case for you.

Kindle cover screen protector
1. A lot of us are guilty of chucking our Kindles into bags with our keys (and the kitchen sink) which leaves their screens extremely vulnerable. As such, the first recommended step in protective Kindle cover choice would be to apply a screen protector. This is a highly valuable thin layer that sticks over the top of the Kindle’s screen. Once it’s on you won’t even notice that it’s there and your screen will no longer scream in pain when it’s scratched.

2. You could be the most careful and diligent person in the world on holiday,, but that won’t stop an excitable child from drowning your Kindle in the pool on the way in to his belly flop. That’s why the 100% waterproof BeachBuoy Kindle cover will be heaven sent for your trips away to the sunshine. Preventing water damage in up to 5 metres water depth, you could even take your latest read out on your rubber ring.
