4.0 out of 5 stars It's alright, 20 April 2012
This review is from: Amazon Kindle Touch Leather Cover, Black (will only fit Kindle Touch) (Accessory)
Because the Kindle Touch is much smaller than the Kindle Keyboard, and ever so slightly larger than the basic Kindle, all new
covers and accessories are needed. Like the previous covers this is an official Amazon cover and a premium product with
quality leather, tight stitching and a microfibre interior. It adds a slight bulk to the Kindle which is quite welcome as the
device itself is very light. The case offers solid protection for the whole Kindle, especially the touchscreen. It's a better
fit with the Kindle than Cinderella & her slipper. The case can be folded in half allowing for one handed reading as well.

However, it's unfortunate Amazon did not listen to customer complaints. There is no magnetic hold to secure the cover in place
when its closed, and when folded back when reading the cover is free to flap about. Another issue is the price which remains
the same, its very expensive despite Amazon's promise of Amazon Basics supplying premium quality products at decent prices.

4/5

Wow. You just keep digging, don't you? If you'd ever received this stuff instead of trying to chart by posting reviews before the stuff has been delivered, you'd know that the covers aren't part of the Amazon Basics range. Here's a clue: the listing DOESN'T include the term 'Amazon Basics'. But it's nice to see that you're making use of pre-existing reviews to add substance to your flimsy claims.

However you also seem to have failed to note that the cover doesn't have to flap about at all when you fold it back. The leather folds so that it is flush to the device and is held in place by your hand. IF you owned one, you'd know this. Even if you were basing your claims on a cover from the baby Kindle - which is basically a slightly slimmer version of the same beast. You might also be aware of the difference in fastening type between this and the cover for the Kindle Keyboard... Which your other recent reviews seem to suggest you own.

Still not seeing any signs of an Amazon Verified Purchase badge on your reviews! It's their default setting - so why'd you feel the need to turn it off? It's not exactly a receipt. But then again, you'd know that IF you'd bought this!

Still struggling with why you'd need both warranties (wifi and 3G) and both cases (lighted/non) have allegedly received ALL before they're due to ship to anyone else, only reviewed one type of device and have completely failed to note any of the genuine idiosyncrasies of the items concerned.

More holes than Swiss cheese!

Nope. Just a genuine buyer. after spotting your earlier clangers I checked in later. Can't help wondering about those discrepancies while waiting for my new Kindle to arrive ON SATURDAY! Earliest legit day for UK buyers w/out problematic US imports! Wonder why I have a problem with your reviews?!!! Sheer stupidity. Coupled with inaccuracy.

Nope, I know plenty. I was hoping you'd say yours HAD been a US import to excuse the irregularities. Not that it would have explained the reviews of the warranties as you DO at least seem to understand that you have to have bought the device in the UK to be eligible for UK warranty. Otherwise...
