The back orders are creating a dilemma for Amazon - since the cleanest switch over to a Kindle 2 would be to have the Kindle 1 in stock before introducing the Kindle 2. I predict that either the Kindle 1's will ship earlier than expected, or all those Feb-Mar Kindle 1's will turn out to be Kindle 2's.
However, I don't think they will be replacing broken Kindle 1's with Kindle 2's.
