my date is still 10/2 for the wifi with special offers.

I ordered within 5 minutes of the site going live and paid for overnight shipping.

My black cover is estimated for Oct. 11.

Well, that should explode that theory. You shouldn't have a 10/2 EDD if SO units shipped first.

I initially had a delivery date of 10/3 for a non-SO 3G, ordered within an hour of the website going live. 3 hours later I changed to a non-SO wifi and my date dropped to 10/11, where it remains.

I don't think that Amazon is specifically favoring one device over the other. I think that they may have underestimated the popularity of the non-SO kindles and too few available for shipment on the first day. (Meaning that some people who ordered early would get them, but many people would have to wait.)

Perhaps the delivery date has something to do with where stocks are being held.

Had I realized that earlier, I would have ordered the one with special offers and just paid them the extra $20 later. Oh, well.
Same here. Ordered w/o SO about 15 minutes after the page appeared. 10/10 for me too.

Just once I wish Amazon would have all the covers available to ship at the same time.

Ordered my Wi-Fi W-SO a week after it went up and my delivery date shows 10/3. I was thinking of upgrading to the non-SO but after reading this I think I will leave it alone.

Ordered Wifi-non-SO on Wed (9/12).. Delivery is still 10/16. Tempted to order a SO just to see if the shipping date is any sooner, but doing that knowing I'd cancel one of them feels a bit dirty to me, so I'll just wait it out.

Yeah. Since nobody here knows exactly how the dispatching is scheduled at Amazon, all "theories" essentially converge either "chaos theory", or to a "will eventually ship" theory. And I guess we'll all survive it, whether we get it a week earlier or later

PS: Yes, I'm one of those folks who doesn't have the luxury of living in the only country where the PW is officially shipped now. So in addition to not knowing when it will arrive, there were also other things to sort out (like having someone in the US who can order it in the first place, and estimating shipping and customs costs, and the corresponding delays).

I broke down and ordered the Wifi w/SO on 9/13 and my shipping date is 10/25... so stick with what you got (unless you want to save a few $$ with SO).
