The Amazon Kindle HDX, with its vibrant screen and snappy processor, promises to be a hit for the holiday season. Always a cost-conscious shoppers delight, the Kindle lineup offers a great way to consume media on the go. The Kindle Fire HDX lineup for 2013 is getting a little bonus, though, with the addition of customizable covers.
The Kindle origami cover — which we think might be the best cover around — can now be customizable via the Amazon site. You can choose your own pictures, or one of several pictures Amazon has preloaded, licensed for use on the origami cover. It’s pretty simple, too: choose a picture, load it onto the site, check to make sure it looks right on the cover, and order. Best of all, there is no added cost for customization!
Another great feature is transparency. When you order a case using one of Amazon’s transparent background images, the color of the case shows through. You can also place images on the front, back, or both front and back. We like the preloaded pics, we just wish there was a few Rorschach images in there for transparent covers.
For $44.99, the case is a bit more than some third-party cases, but customization really sets it apart. This would be a great way do end the arguments this year amongst kids about whose tablet belongs to whom. That alone may be worth the stretch this holiday season.
