Amazon Now Lets You Customize Your Kindle AccessoriesBy: Zach Walton - November 14, 2013
If you’re buying a Kindle Fire HDX for a family member this holiday season, you’re also probably buying a cover for the device. Now you can make your gift even more special by slapping your beautiful mug on the cover.
Amazon announced today that consumers can now fully customize their Kindle accessories. In other words, you can take your own pictures, or a selection of designs from Amazon, and put them on your Kindle cover. The online retailer also offers a wide variety of covers featuring designs from comics, movies and TV shows, like Peanuts, Breaking Bad and Star Trek.
“With this new service, we’re making it possible for customers to dream up virtually any design and seamlessly turn it into a Kindle cover—at no additional cost,” said Peter Larsen, Vice President, Amazon Kindle. “We’ve also created designs exclusive to Amazon that work perfectly with our new Origami covers to give customers even more options. We’re excited to bring this all-new technology to Kindle accessories and we can’t wait to see what customers come up with.”
If you just want a simple cover for your tablet, that will be $19.99 across all devices. If you’re looking into one of Amazon’s fancy Origami covers, you’re looking at a cost of $45 for the new Kindle Fire HD and $50 for the Kindle Fire HDX. Previous generations of Kindle Fire devices and the Kindle Paperwhite are also supported.
