I am thinking about getting the Ionic case, I got the EEEKit one the other day and it's nice though the KFHD89 fits slightly lose in it.

I ended up changing my mind, and going with the stock amazon case.

I'm not really liking it though. Fit is very nice, but when the cover is opened all the way against the back of the tablet, and you're holding it, the edges of the case are kind of "sharp", and dig in, at least the way I hold it.

It looks nice, but I'm not 100% sure I'd recommend it to anybody.

Roo Cases
I just ordered these cases (Fire arrives today and the cases will be here soon after):
Seems like the roo cases are all discounted to $5 with shipping. I'll update once I get the two cases (I expect to like the ultra-slim vegan folio case given my previous tablet cases)

Unfortunately it is a knockoff of the Case Crown, also sold on Amazon. It has one flaw (major) and one minor one for me. First, the Kindle is housed in the case UPSIDE DOWN! Didn't know there was an upside down? Shut you Kindle .9 down. reboot with the camera on your right side. Notice that the icon comes up upside down? !!! No big deal? You will find ESPN and Dish (slingbox) to name a couple In the instant of the Case Crown, you can rotate the holder 180 degrees so that the .9 is held correctly. Unfortunately that defeats the magnetic On off feature. The case is MUCH larger than the Amazon case making it just a tad more difficult for those of us who do not have extra large mitts to hold it in one MITT for an extended period of time. The added bulk and weight was just not my cup of (bourbon), Tea.

I sent my Case Crown back last week right after the Kindle case arrived. The Amazon case is expensive I think, could have at least had Plush leather and the sharp ridges on the right side of the case fall just where my thumb sets. but then, it's the only game in town at the moment.

Addition to my last note on the .9 Case alternatives. ANY bifold case will set the Fire, be it 7" OR 8.9" upside down in the case.

The Amazon case is pretty much the only one that puts the camera towards the spine of the case. Its only really an issue if you have to hold the spine on the left. Open it with the spine on the right and everything is dandy. I think of it more a design flaw with the kindle than the case makers. They also decided to put the power port on the bottom when setup in landscape mode (like most folks will use for extended viewing, or using with a keyboard, etc. Some of the trifold cases get the ports off the ground a bit more where you might be able to squeeze the power in, but its something to look for when buying if that's important to you.
