I would like to know as well. I can't even find the official one on amazon canada. Also I was hesitant to purchase this tablet but I'm glad I did . This is Amazon's nexus 7 . Unreal value and good quailty.
I ended up just not getting a cover. Even if the official cover was available it'd be $40 or more likely $50, which seems like an absurd ratio for a $150 tablet. It's $30 US for a $100 tablet in the US.

There seems to be 2 major types available for third party covers -

1) A thin/light type similar to the official but without the diagonal fold (stand in landscape and portrait) and so can only stand in landscape mode.

2) A bulkier one where the cover even covers part of the bezels. Still can only stand via landscape. Some variants of this have a strap on the back you can use to hold it one handed.

So what are the predictions for Cyber Monday? Logically since Amazon doesn’t have any physical stores that is the day deals should happen, to attract all those gift shoppers taking advantage of being away from their spouse and kids (and for a shocking minority, advantage of their employers reliable Internet).

Maybe a sales director at Amazon will freek out as a result of the impact of the Canada Post Strike. Or someone in marketing will want to celebrate the end of the strike. Maybe Bezos will realize he has too much money. ;)

Sales!

the thing is the iPad is not expensive, the expensive stuff are the pen&keyboard. you waste your money on those. this ipad can use 10 years, but other tablet maybe can be used only 1 or 2 years.
lol 10 years...more like 5 years max

If you can stand the wait, aliexpress.com carries lots of them at much more reasonable prices than in NA.

for $350 new ipad , what can you ask more?
Apple charges ridiculous prices for a media consumption machine. You can get real computers for the same price.

I'm looking for one myself.
Considering that the Fire HD 10 is new to Canada, you'll have much better options shopping on Amazon.com (USA).
They also have tempered glass screen protectors...
What if there were no hypothetical questions?

I don't understand why did you assume Amazon would have great sales? If the past is any indication then disappointment could have been avoided. I mean Staples, STAPLES!!!!! outdid amazon this black Friday.

Of the 30 items I was looking for not "ONE" of them went on sale. What's even worse is the precedent this sets. Since the Average idiot is happy to buy the cheap Chinese crap on sale for black Friday. So think of the message this sends to Amazon. They will continue to have these weak BF sales. Prime member sale was better.

Mostly yes, but they recently stopped giving the free shipping option due to the Canada Post strike. Suggest taking that into account.

Is the FIRE HD 10 worth it at 149+ tx, or are there other similarly priced tablets (android)?
