Cases and covers for the new Fire tablets

new fire cases

The new $49.99 7″ Fire tablet was released today, so I thought it would be interesting to take a look at the covers and cases that are available for the new Fire tablets. The new devices are labeled as the 5th generation and the cases for them are also identified as 5th generation – 2015 release.

The bad news is that there aren’t very many yet, especially if you prefer the generally lower-cost option of a third-party case. And, cases that fit the new devices are currently only available from Amazon. That means nothing on eBay or other sites yet. The good news is that is a variety of styles, colors and  price ranges are already listed on the site and for sale .

Here is what’s currently available:
