Speck launches FitFolio case line for Kindle, Nook, Kobo, and iRiver e-readers

Speck has stared shipping its new Kindle FitFolio case and next month will have cases available for the Nook, Kobo Touch, and iRiver Story HD e-readers.

Speck's FitFolio is one of our favorite iPad 2 cases . Now the company is bringing the line to the e-reader arena, with FitFolio cases for the Kindle, Nook, Kobo Touch, and iRiver Story HD.

The FitFolio for Kindle 3 is already available for $29.99 (in multiple colors), but the cases for the other e-reader models aren't set to ship until next month, company reps told us at an event last night in New York, where we got a sneak peek at all the new cases.Two other Kindle 3 cases, the WanderFolio (see above picture) and BookShield are also due to arrive soon.

While plenty of cases already exist for the Kindle, the FitFolio is one of the better ones we've seen for those models (we still like Amazon's Lighted Leather Kindle cover the best, but not everyone wants the built-in light or to pay $50 for a case).

Owners of the new Nook also have lots of case choices, but Speck's case should quickly become a top option. It's also good to see covers finally arriving for the Kobo Touch, which didn't launch with any cases (iRiver at least had a few nice ones available for the iRiver Story HD).
