One of the main gripes I have always had about e-ink technology is that it has no backlighting. “You can’t read it in a dim room,” I complain. (People say, “But you can’t read regular screens on the beach!” To which I reply that I spend a heck of a lot more time inside and/or in the dark than on the beach.)
But various folks are trying to solve this problem, and the Periscope is one solution. Giving you a full lighted folio for your Kindle or nook, the Periscope not only gives you some light when you need it, but also a nice cover for your device. The Periscope is available for an MSRP of $49.95.

Wherever possible, Periscope is dedicated to simplifying the consumer¹s choice of an e-reader cover,² Periscope President Eric Fisherman said today. Simplifying the buying process will become even more important as we move into the upcoming holiday gift giving season. Many gift givers simply do not know what model of e-reader their loved one own or plans to buy. Our new Lighted Folio becomes the ideal choice because it is compatible with both the Amazon Kindle 2 and Barnes & Noble nook e-readers.
The introduction of the next generation Lighted Folio comes on the heels of the company’s debut last week of its new Periscope Flip Cover+Light Series, a flip over design available in two versions one that’s compatible with both the Amazon Kindle 2 and Barnes & Noble nook e-readers and a second larger version that is compatible with the Amazon Kindle DX e-reader.
