People on Reddit are reporting the Kindle book cover feature has arrived in most of Europe and the U.S.

Hmm, what have we here?

“Update your kindle” has been greyed out since I bought it. What’s the deal?

Edit: it’s updating on its own now, like five seconds after I posted

Edit2: ok I’m updated, where is this setting for people who have it?

If you're lucky, it'll be under device options

If you don't see it and you're on the latest firmware, perform a reboot from the system menu.

Worked for me, I'm in Canada.

Seems to be updating pretty much randomly over the last couple days. I'm still without it no matter how many restarts

Hey I'm in the market for an e-reader, i've mostly had kindles but now that I'm in Canada i'm more looking at the Kobo line, either the Clara HD or the Libra. My upper budget is 200 before VAT/tax, and I'm probably putting koreader on it so I guess even a kindle would be fine lol?

My question is less "what do i get" and more "should I wait a bit to see what they got this year? is there a new e-reader expected soon?"



Edit:
vvvv oh hell yeah, good looking out

"Go on until you're stopped."

Kobo tends to reveal new products around Mother's Day, so you might actually do well to wait.

drat, the official cover for the Boox Poke3 literally works by gluing the reader into the case.

Does it work on the PW3 or just the newest of the new?

Neat. Chatted with support in the app on my phone and they removed the ads from the oasis and my kindle fire tablet.

Gotta plug the oasis into the pc later to transfer some books, and get those delicious, sweet, sweet covers.

My Oasis downloaded the latest firmware, but still no sign of the cover option.

On my Voyage, I had to reboot to get it to show up. The update option was grayed out.

I rebooted my oasis, and then got the ads removed, and it popped up under settings a few moments later when I got the chance to fiddle with it. I've only done OTA updates apparently.

Ditto. Curious as to why it wouldn't show up for some of us.

OK I DON'T GET IT

Restarted my Oasis and it gave me the option on the home screen when I booted up.
