Kindle 3 crashes might be due to your case, not your e-reader
Amazon’s Kindle line of e-readers are remarkably solid devices, rarely prone to any sort of spontaneous bugs or hardware failures… a fact largely due to the pedigree of the e-reader’s simple hardware and closed software. That’s why it was surprising when users began to report Kindle 3 crashes left, right and center. Even more [...]

Kindle ereader case – Problems?

Kindle case
Yesterday the net was abuzz with rumours that something is not quite right with the standard leather Kindle case for the latest-generation reader. Apparently some users have found that their Kindles keep switching off or freezing when they’re in the case. Twin culprits, allegedly, are the fixing hooks that click into two holes on the left of the Kindle and keep it firmly inside the case. So the story goes, the two holes include electrical contacts which are used to power the lamp in the more expensive Kindle case with reading lamp. Somehow, it seems, the clips on the standard non-lit case are causing the problem. I can’t offer any technical help on this; it may be just a rumour and Amazon, of course, haven’t made any pronouncement.

All this reminded me that I’ve had some strange happenings with my Kindle, always when it is in the case. It has switched off suddenly on a number of occasions and I’ve had a couple of freeze ups. I didn’t think much of it, but if the case is at fault we need to find out. Currently, I’ve removed the case and am using the naked device to see if this improves matters.

In my Kindle review I did complain about the case but on a completely separate issue. When closing the case the pressure often presses one of they keys with unpredictable results. On many occasions I’ve found the Whispersync bookmark has gone back a chapter or two – presumably as a result of pressing the “back” button. More annoyingly, I have found Whispersync has moved right to the end of the book and I have to go searching around to remember where I was. If this happens, all your devices are synced to the last page and there’s nothing you can do to persuade Whispersync to start again. The problem here, of course, is not specifically the case but the presence of a physical keyboard. I still believe it’s a nuisance, neither use nor ornament, and we would be better with a touch OS with virtual keyboard as on the Sony range.

All this leads me to rather dislike the case and I really wish I’d gone for one of the neoprene sleeves that Amazon also sell. I find holding the Kindle without the case is much more comfortable (and lighter) and definitely more satisfying as an experience.

I telephoned Kindle customer support yesterday to ask if I could change the case for an alternative and they have yet to come back to me. More information to come if anything happens.

Thus Michael on the kindle case:

If you are in any way concerned with any Apple products, I can’t recommend his blog enough, it is a very varied blog, discussing a wide range of Apple related topics, so nip along and check it out (if you haven’t already become a regular reader of his blog).

Video review of Amazon Kindle 3 Leather Case With Light





Here we have a very thorough review of the Kindle 3 jacket with built in light:

This jacket, or any similar one, is a very essential accessory for any Kindle 3, as being bunged into your handbag, pocket or backpack is something that is guaranteed to scratch and damage your Kindle in no time.

This particular jacket is one that Amazon themselves make and sell, so easy to get, just nip along to good old Amazon, pay your money and one will be enveloping your faithful Kindle 3 in no time.

My Daughter in Law (Caro) has one of these, a very smart looking thing in black, and seems very happy with it.  Personally I am very taken with the neat little light that it has sort of tucked into one corner….  An elegant solution.

So, sit back and let the good man from Digital Dorf tell you all about it.
