First Forum Member to order a Kindle

I claim the title.

I ordered my Kindle this morning, and the confirmation email had a timestamp of 6:29am EST (about 10 minute before this post).

Did anyone beat me to it?




P.S. Here is where I got it:

I tried from Ireland with the same result. Looks like a US only release.

To all non-US guys: Why would you even want to buy it? You won't be able to use its wireless capabilities which pretty much reduces the Kindle to a "normal" e-reader device.

Nate -

Have you received your "Welcome to Kindle" email?

Here's mine:

"Dear TallMomof2,

Thank you for your purchase and welcome to Amazon Kindle.

We built Kindle with the goal of creating an exceptional and hassle-free reading experience. As such, we wanted to point out a few details before you get started on Kindle.

Your Kindle is automatically registered to the same Amazon.com account you used to make your purchase. This enables you shop, purchase, and download books, newspapers, and magazines wirelessly from your Kindle device right out of the box. Your Kindle purchases are made using your existing default 1-Click payment method at Amazon.com. If you wish to change the payment method associated with your Kindle, you can do so by visiting Manage Your Kindle on Amazon.com.

If you purchased your Kindle as a gift for someone else, you should deregister your Kindle device from your Amazon.com account. You can deregister your Kindle from the Settings page on the device or at Manage Your Kindle on Amazon.com.

You can start building your library before your Kindle even arrives by shopping for books, newspapers, magazines and more at the Kindle Store on Amazon.com. Amazon's unique wireless delivery system, Amazon Whispernet will auto-deliver your purchases directly to your Kindle. Once you receive your Kindle, you can also shop the same great selection directly from your device.

Here's what you have to look forward to reading on your Kindle:

* More than 80,000 books including New York Times Best Sellers and New Releases for $9.99, unless marked otherwise.
* Top U.S. and International newspapers including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, Le Monde, and Frankfurter Allgemeine.
* Top magazines and journals including TIME, Forbes, and Atlantic Monthly - all wirelessly delivered to your Kindle before they hit the newsstands.
* More than 250 top blogs from the worlds of business, technology, sports, entertainment, and politics, including Slashdot, Techdirt, Boing Boing, FOX Sports, Michelle Malkin, and The Huffington Post.

We hope you enjoy reading on Kindle and look forward to hearing about your experience. Send us your feedback at kindle-feedback@amazon.com.

Sincerely,

The Amazon Kindle Team"

Did not work with my Chinese address (no big surprise) and also did not work with my Canadian address.

Once again, a company is ignoring the vast majority of people. Must be nice to be so fabulously wealthy and successful that you do not need more customers.

Thank you for posting this. It gives us a little more insught...although the "you can shop before you received your kindle..." might not be entirely true since you can't do that just yet...but who knows what the day might bring.

I'm really looking forward to hearing from you guys about the Kindle "First Hand"...
Only sad that there is still no mention of international sales...only international newspapers.

Edit: I don't know...who -outside of germany- would be interested in reading the "Frankfurter Allgemeine"???

There is a link in the email "Managing Your Kindle" which links to a 404 page. I can't buy books or even see any but I'm sure that will change.

Forgot to add there is a link to the Kindle bookstore but it's not working either.

Hi everyone,

Just ordered the Kindle and received the introductory email. Nice touch on Amazon's part. Thanks for providing the link. Couldn't find it any other way.
