Thank god! Mine just shipped as well (9:25 pm local time)!

Although I ordered the cover a day later and with slower shipping, it looks like they got packaged together and will both arrive tomorrow woohoo.

My order shipped, and is now in a city an hour's drive from here. Even though I'm supposed to get it Thursday, I think it will be Wednesday. I've seen this before with fedex smart, it will arrive in town tomorrow, transfer to the PO, and will be delivered by USPS the day after tomorrow.

I'm not going to go back through the entire thread, but did anyone else get their PW today? My wifi-only PW SO shipped yesterday and I got it this morning. Have been enjoying it, mostly, but have some screen splotchiness and syncing problems.

Update: Strike that part about splotchiness. This was something on the surface of the screen, which wiped off. The screen has very nice, uniform lighting except for the very bottom where there's some shadowing.

I purposely didn't order my cover with my PW because I knew, having the cover sitting here w/ no Paperwhite, to put in it, would drive me crazy! So I waited. Now, my cover will arrive 10 days after my PW, because I waited.

I was worried that my Kindle would show up first and that I wouldn't feel comfortable using it... silly me!

Any chance you could post a picture? I'd like to see what you're seeing.

I've only seen one other person say they got theirs today, and that was in the Kindle Boards forum. what kind of splotchiness are you seeing? Is it the eInk or the light layer? I noticed one of the reviews from this morning had light and dark shadows from the light at the bottom of the screen.

My first order just shipped. The others are scheduled out more than a week or two, but they were ordered a day after the first one.

There's been a couple people on here that received them today. Both posted in the user review thread on here mentioning the light being uneven.

My Paperwhite finally changed to shipped! So happy! It's after midnight here and I just got the email. I checked the tracking and it says it left PA at 3:00 PM yesterday. The system is obviously very behind. I'm so happy I'll have it today!

You can easily see the uneven light about 1 minute into the video review done by the Verge. Look at the bottom of the PW screen. It appears to be worse in low light.

Thanks for that. It is uneven, but it won't be a deal breaker for me I really don't think. I guess we'll see.
