Kindle sold out

From Amazon's Kindle page:

Note: This item is not immediately available to ship. (In stock on November 21, 2007. Order it now.)

I wonder how large their initial inventory was.

Yeah, I just ordered and it said "in stock" then the email said "Nov 28th" Damn.

OTOH, they rolled back the next day shipping I selected to free 2-day so I saved $18. And if everyone here that is getting one tomorrow says it sucks, I can cancel. <g>

Then if it is super great I will get another for Barb for XMas. No need to worry about WAF - she is getting a new kitchen in Feb. That makes this look like pocket change. <g>

Ordered my Kindle... And it's already shipped.

Ordered mine this morning. Just got email at 1:15 that the order shipped fedex. So will get my kindle tomorrow! Already have several blog, magazine and newspaper subscriptions signed up.

I only have one real regret for the kindle. That it doesn't have a black version. It will be impossible for me to hide this "upgrade" from my wife as I so easily did when upgrading my PRS-500 -> 505. I'm really not sure how i'm going to justify this impulse buy to her. Heh, oh well, just means she will get a free shopping spree on black friday.

Thank you. This raises the question of WTH did they do to screw up my order?

Yes. Repeatedly. That is irrelevant, though. The order page on Amazon does not have a tracking number; it says they are still packing the Kindle. And that's as of about 2 minutes ago.

I ordered mine at 11:00 am, Mountain time, and my status says:
Items shipping soon: Shipping estimate: November 19, 2007

But I haven't received a shipping notice yet. Which sucks. I hope that doesn't mean they were already sold out...

Thanks. It makes me feel a little better to know I am not alone in this problem.

I hope that unlike Sony, Amazon will release their sales numbers. We need those numbers to prove that e-book isn't strictly niche anymore...

I just received my shipping notice. They just shipped and it's due here on 11-20-2007. Whew!

I'm usually not this much of an early adopter, but hey it's my holiday bonus, might as well spend some of it on something to do with reading rather than scootering--the rest of the bonus went into boring ol' savings..
