Periscope Introduces Flip Cover and Light for Kindle and nook eReaders
      08/16/10 02:29 PM

Periscope today introduced its new patented Periscope Flip Cover+Light in two versions - one that's compatible with both the Amazon Kindle 2 (6" screen) and Barnes and Noble nook e-readers and a second larger version that is compatible with the Amazon Kindle DX e-reader. Here is more info on these flip cover lights:

Like all Periscope Cover+Lights for e-readers as well as traditional hardcover and paperback books, the new Flip Cover+Light combines a cover and retractable reading light in one package. Readers simply slip their e-reader into the cover, pull up the retractable LED reading light and begin reading. When they are finished reading, they re-tract the light into the spine and close the cover. Now the e-reader is protected. The built-in retractable twin LED light is powered by three ?AA? batteries (not included) that will last at least 40 hours. The cover features a magnetic snap closure that secures the e-reader when traveling. A mini-travel 110-220V AC adapter is available for purchase separately.

Periscope offers e-reader covers in both Flip models, which fold over the top of the e-reader and Folio models, which open up right to left, like a traditional book would. The new Flip Cover+Lights are available in black and feature a stylish brown trim accent.

Flip Cover+Lights are available at the following suggested retail prices: $49.95 for the Kindle 2/Nook version and $59.95 for the larger Kindle DX version. Both new Flip models are available for immediate delivery at
