Most of the cases can be bought on Amazon, but there are some really good cases, which are available only on the websites of their producers. You’ll also find them in this overview.
One millimeter doesn’t make a big difference when it comes to a flip folio case with corner straps. Hard cases, especially the ones designed to give extra protection, are different. They are made to fit exactly one specific model.
Amazon Fire HDX 7 is different than Fire HD 7. And Amazon Fire HD 7 (1st generation) is different than Fire HD 7 (model 2013). Make sure you’re buying the cover for the right Kindle model.
Sleeves, like the waterproof ones listed below, are more universal. They usually fit models for up to a certain size.
Basic Kindle and Kindle Paperwhite are smaller than Kindle Touch, so any sleeve which fits the last one should also work for the others. Some producers include in the description: “for Kindle Paperwhite, Kindle, and Kindle Touch.”
One thing to know is that since autumn 2014 the name “Kindle” is no longer used for Amazon tablets. Producers of covers and accessories will be adjusting their product names accordingly.
Therefore, if you are looking for a Fire HDX tablet, try to browse for “Amazon Fire HDX” or just “Fire HDX”, and not only “Kindle Fire HDX”.
