I've still ordered Kindle in case if it is not available on sonyrewards. There is no way I am going to pay $200+ for a reader in cash.
That has been there from day one and has been discussed in several threads. That is not new information. However, once you order via SonyStyle you get a ship date, which in my case is bogus because it still shows the estimated shipping date as 09/03/2010. Since it hasn't shipped, the date is obviously wrong since it is now 09/08/2010. When I placed my order I had to finish up the order via phone as the SonyStyle website couldn't get the order to go through. I was told over the phone to expect a ship date of 09/19/2010. Others have been told different dates by SonyStyle and/or individual stores. I really don't expect it to ship until at least 09/16/2010.
Last year I signed up for all three email notifications that were supposed to be sent out when the 300, 600, and 900 were available for shipping. I never received any of those emails. So I don't expect to receive the ones for the 350 and 650 either. Sony is kind of weird in the way they deal with customers, whereas some companies bend over backwards to keep customers informed and happy, Sony doesn't seem to do this.
