Case for the new Kindle (non-touch)

Hi

Are PC World stocking cases for the newly released (non touch) Kindle?

Specifically, any in the Naas branch?

Thanks

We'll always stock the cases. Trouble is that the product itself hasn't reached Naas yet, that should happen next week. I'll get a status on when the cases are due and let you know

Fair point. What you tend to find in this business is that the hardware gets overly subsidized and the cost of doing that needs to be recovered somewhere. The total package is pretty decent value for what it does but the comparison of one prduct versus the other does look a bit bonkers to a rational consumer. You see the same thing in the cost of a printer versus the cost of ink, although the margins on ink aren't that high relatively.

In theory, the product should be rolling out to all stores this week. Probably best to check in befpre the weekend or I'll update myself if I remember

Not yet alas. Coordination not brilliant on this one. My man in accessories is with the buyers tomorrow and he said he can update me better after that.

The above look about it for the moment. All fine in themselves but not what I think you're looking for. Is this an imminent purchase ?
