We’ve extensively covered the new Kindle HD from Amazon and for the most part, had nothing but positive things to say about Amazon’s tablet device. If you haven’t checked it out yet, be sure to read the Kindle Fire HD announcement and and article about how the Kindle has finally grown up. Also, don’t miss our comparison article about the Kindle HD, iPad Mini and more. If you’re one of the many intelligent people to buy a Kindle HD, chances are you’re also shopping for a high quality case to go with it. Enter Marware, an eco-friendly company dedicated to providing affordable products that are also friendly to the world we live in. We had a chance to get some hands-on time with the Marware EcoVue as well as the MicroShell Folio. Both are outstanding options to house your Kindle HD, offering solid design and good protection for your tablet.

Features

[adsense250itp]The Marware MicroShell Folio is a certified “made for Kindle” accessory for the Kindle Fire HD 7″ tablet. It offers full access to the HDMI and charging ports and sports a rubberized lid that can fold to prop up the case/tablet for hands-free viewing. It’s extremely lightweight at 5.6 ounces and has a soft microfiber lining inside to protect the device. It runs for $34.99 on Amazon.com in a variety of colors including black, purple, orange, pink and grey.

The Marware EvoVue Leather Standing Case is also certified as an official accessory for the Kindle Fire HD 7″ tablet and can stand at four different viewing angles. The lid will initiate an automatic sleep/wake feature. The folio cover is RoHS compliant, eco-friendly leather with a soft microfiger interior for protection. It also runs for $34.99 on Amazon.com and comes in different colors.

Quality

Both cases are well built and durable, but extremely lightweight. Once you have popped in your Kindle HD, you’ll hardly notice the extra weight. However, to keep your tablet safe and secure, Marware offers two very well built quality cases. The MicroShell Folio is really lightweight and is a very utilitarian, straightforward case to use. If you are a minimalist looking to protect your screen, be able to prop up the Kindle HD for hands-free viewing and want something very lightweight, then this is the case to buy. If more protection is of importance, then the EcoVue would be the one to get as it is more sleek, sexy, and sturdy than its more lightweight companion. This one offers an interior hand strap that makes holding the case and tablet with one hand much easier than the MicroShell Folio. Either way, the build quality is outstanding on both.

Overall Impression

Both the MicroShell Folio and the EvoVue are well designed, comfortable cases to house your Kindle HD tablet inside. Both offer hands-free viewing thanks to a nice utilitarian design and the quality of the materials used has a high-end feel. If there’s a downside to the EcoVue, it’s that you have to keep the case open to charge it – so there’s no way to keep the case closed or to keep it propped open cleanly and simultaneously charge your tablet. Nevertheless, Kindle Fire HD users would be well suited to take a long look at both of these products.
