So, when I put my shiny, new Kindle on the couch while I put on a sweater (a little chilly in the house),of course, the enormous horse of a puppy we call Bruin (go UCLA!) decided to jump on the couch...against the rules, Kindle or no! His paws knocked the Kindle to the hard wooden floors and, well, you probably heard me yell at your house!
The Kindle?? It was fine! Took the fall like a champ, but I suffered trauma. I knew that I couldn't stop the Kindle from falling occasionally, and find the book-like covers too heavy and bulky and then looked at my iPod, covered with an inexpensive silicone gel....thing! That would be perfect!
And it pretty darn near is! It fits like a glove, except maybe at the bottom where it has to be open and is a little flimsy. It's silky smooth and has added almost no weight to the Kindle and, while I haven't had a repeat of the Kindle vs. the floor incident, I feel confident that this gel case will give it some protection. I bought the slightly larger Belkin zippered carrying case made for the Kindle 2nd gen (at a killer sale price!) and my Kindle in its gel case fits easily! Sigh of relief all around...thank you TrendyDigital!
Maybe if I rub the Kindle on a few books?????
Could be a little tighter against the device - the edges around the screen and under the keyboard are a little floppy. Not a big deal. But if you put it in a bag with other stuff, you'll probably find that little bits of debris will find their way under the case.
Also not a big deal, but a fundamental error in the design is that the arrow icons over the navigation buttons on the left side are reversed. The bottom button points < and the top button points >. This is wrong. On both sides, the bottom button should be > and the top button should be <. Of course, this doesn't affect the function of the button, but it's a goof up.

What a great case! If you've had a silicone case for an iPod, this is basically the same idea. Snug fit, but left room for hitting all the keys. Read morePublished on January 11, 2012 by pirate1990
