I’ve been meaning to blog about this lately but it’s slipped my mind – M-Edge has been quite the busy beaver lately. They’ve put out a “GO! Jacket” for the Kindle 2, presumably because people were complaining about how bulky their Prodigy, Executive, and Platform jackets were. Personally, I’m quite happy with my Prodigy, but I suppose for some people the slightest tweaks like smaller size are important. The GO! comes in only leather (so far) in Pebbled Purple, Pebbled Fuschia, Smooth Mocha, Pebbled Black, and Smooth Red. To be completely honest, I think it looks pretty much exactly like the official Amazon Kindle 2 leather cover – it’s even the same price at $29.99. Keep in mind that it still uses the hinge system + two corner straps and seems significantly smaller, but does not have a strap to keep it closed or pockets inside. I know people were saying that the pockets were useless, but I find them quite handy, as I’ve mentioned before for keeping my student ID and a few business cards.
Also I received an email from M-Edge about their e-luminator, which I have been patiently awaiting for months! For the record, the GO! Jacket is NOT compatible with their light. Anyway the website says that it’s available for pre-order on May 26! So far away! Here’s part of the email:
