Talking Kindle Update

I just found out my replacement Kindle has been shipped and is expected to arrive on Friday...

So since this is the holiday season, I expected the delays, and am still thrilled beyond belief that I'm getting a replacement.

12-17 Kindle Broken
12-18 Amazon Contacted
12-26 Expected Replacement Arrival.

Not bad at all Amazon!!

Wow, I can't believe it is coming that quickly since they are so backlogged on christmas deliveries.

That is good.

Actually a little, yes. Of course being the geek that I am, I have broken more expensive toys on purpose.. hehe

I have had quite a graveyard of electronics over the years due to my soldering iron and my inability to just leave well enough alone..

Kindle didn't arrive.. <sob>



Oh well, knew it was too good to be true.. Kindle won't ship until late Feb-March. Disappointed but still ok with it.. Hell maybe they'll be shipping the new kindle by then and I'll get one of those.. Can only hope.

There is no reason you should have to wait. Contact amazon customer service and complain.

The usual practice is to bump replacement shipments to the top of the list. That is why Amazon is known for its excellent service.

I wouldn't complain if I were him, might raise too many red flags. Heck, he's getting a new one for free when it wasn't a product defect!

I'd be bummed though.

The back orders are creating a dilemma for Amazon - since the cleanest switch over to a Kindle 2 would be to have the Kindle 1 in stock before introducing the Kindle 2. I predict that either the Kindle 1's will ship earlier than expected, or all those Feb-Mar Kindle 1's will turn out to be Kindle 2's.

However, I don't think they will be replacing broken Kindle 1's with Kindle 2's.

No doubt that's the case. Even Apple replaces broken stuff with the same gen replacement... usually a refurb.

I'm guess August at the earlyest for Kindle 2.. it even that soon. Although, maybe they will show something at CES.

Sounds like something my cat would do... He loves to try to walk across it when I am reading before bed! I have to reposition myself a bit so he wont lay on it! I swear they get jealous. He sits in from of the computer screen too!


Black one is the snugglebug (Mittens) the gray one (Blade) not so much.
