One of the few things I don't like about the Kindle 2 is the lack of included cover; the first generation's included case. It saved you the hassle of buying a case and the suede on it was the tactile element the device itself was missing. Not into the hot red? It's also available in gold and black.
Getting one out of those two requirements is Cole Haan's Patent Leather Kindle 2 Case. The outside is a very shiny, luxe woven leather, while the inside has that nice suede that I so liked with the first one.
Unfortunately, it's also far from the free status of the first gen's case; it's $120. Then again, you're gonna end up shelling out for a case on the Kindle 2 anyway, why not make it a statement?
What do you think of this case — is it annoying you'd pay so much for something, or is the price fine for the quality of a Cole Haan product? And the leather — is it too shiny or just right?
