Mine shipped this morning--due for arrival on Oct. 11. Which probably means it'll be here Monday when I won't be home, but eh. It's coming--and the lovely ink blue cover is with it!! *happy Snoopy dance*

I got an email yesterday that they finally shipped it. It will be here on Saturday, so I'll be watching the door like a hawk and not leave the house. Sunday will be very rainy, so I have big plans!!

I ordered mine the day it was announced. Wasn't sure I wanted one but figured it was better to preorder and cancel if I didn't want it then order later if I decided I did. Glad I did I've decided I really want one.

After changing to shipping soon Sunday afternoon, mine shipped Wednesday night. Even though I used super saver shipping mine is scheduled to arrive Friday.

I'm so mad at Amazon right now. I ordered the day that they came out and it JUST NOW shipped after nearly 48 hours in "Shipping Soon" state. Moreover, they shipped it from >2000 miles away by Fedex Smartpost, which is always insanely slow. It's not scheduled to arrive until NEXT Friday, over a week away! Moreover, my experience with SmartPost is that their estimates are often too aggressive.

At the same time, I'm seeing posts by people who ordered a week after me, also using Supersaver Shipping, yet they already have theirs in hand. Also seeing posts about people returning theirs and getting a replacement already shipped with an estimated date before mine. How can this be?

Did get my case yesterday. Even though I ordered it AFTER the device itself, it came and arrived in 2 days... that's just mean.

That's just weird. I've never heard of FedEx SmartPost, maybe it's regional. Do you live in a remote location?

Smartpost is what free shipping users get. I've stop ordering with free shipping because of it. Fedex picks up the package then gives it over to USPS to deliver. Some post office only deliver during a certain times of the week for this service. They just don't have the manpower to unload the pallet so it just sits there. We had some DVDs get misrouted that way. It's a horrible service but I only had small problems but many others have horror stories to tell. UPS Basic can be just as bad.

If you define a suburb of about 60,000 in a metropolitan area of about 2.5 million as remote. :-)

Blossom described SmartPost well.

My PW is out for delivery by UPS as of 5:58 am!!!

I ordered on Sep. 9th, originally with supersaver shipping. At that time, the expected arrival date was Oct 19th - Oct 24th. On Sep. 28th, I modified the shipping method to next-day. The expected arrival date moved to Oct 12th. On Oct 1st, my order status changed to Shipping Soon. On Oct 3rd, I received shipping confirmation. A very satisfactory experience.

That's what I don't get. If you ordered 3 days after me, why did yours ship a day earlier?

He uses one day shipping so he got priority.

But that's 1 day SHIPPING... it doesn't seem that shipping method should affect order of processing. If it does, they should make that clear when you're choosing the method.

It's always been that way. You pay for shipping you get priority over the free shipping. Prime members get even more priority than non Prime members.
