The Platform Case is a real platform. The top is meant to fold back, and using the closure tab you can lock the case into a triangle and it will hold your Kindle securely upright. I just finished eating dinner and my Kindle was propped up in front of me the whole time. This is just so convenient. There is no need to find stuff to lean your Kindle against. It sits nicely on my stomach, too, when I’m in my recliner.
Here’s another shot of the Kindle sitting upright in the Platform case. Neat!
The case has two pockets in the top part and I’ve inserted cards so you can see where they are. The top pocket is business card size and the other pocket runs the full length of the cover.
Here’s the one publicity photo I’ll use. Note all the available colors. But if you look more closely you’ll see the M-Edge e-Luminator booklight attached to the case to the left of the Kindle. It will fit into a slot in the case and become a permanent part of the case/Kindle/booklight unit. The is the solution we’ve all been looking for. The e-Luminator will also work with the Prodigy case that I’ll review next week. The e-Luminator will be available in late April/early May. The Platform case is available in leather in the colors above for $54.99 and is currently on sale for $44.99. It is also available in synthetic leather in 5 colors for $39.99 and is currently on sale for $29.99.
You can find all their products on their website. They have cases for the Kindle 1 (see reviews above), the Sony 505, the eFlybook, the iLiad and the Cybook.
