I think it seems fairly certain that no one in the US/Canada has yet received an invite - at least no one has posted that they have, and there is no other currency yet on that drop down (see posts above for a discussion about the meaning of that).

I like to think that I have not received an invite because US sales are still on hold, not because I am not on the list! But I have no way of knowing at the moment - that is why I would be grateful if US/Canade people posted to this thread when they got an invite.

Here is hoping for Monday. Maybe an invite is a consolation prize for us, while you lucky europeans get shipping!!

My invite arrived this morning at 4:20 am - no, I was sleeping...

Just ordered iLiad - order number 500. Came to $813, but the shipping isn't be right because only European countries were available in the account settings. I was also charged VAT because of it, so this should go away, and the shipping should go up.

Anyway - the email that came with the invite said the USA was going to get shipments in July.

Happy 3rd of July everyone!

They have not so many orders...

ThinkNeXT is # 399 (16 June, 2006)
CommanderROR is # 47x, (26th of June) and you are only # 500...

In the light of this http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=6927
it seems to me, their B2B model is absolutely insolvent, it just failed....

Takir,

Thats a number being taken out of context...

That could be 450 orders of 100-1000 units each and 50 (us) of 1.

You can't assume anything from that.

Anyone else?

I realize almost everyone in the US is off on a break to celebrate the birth of this nation, but I am curious whether anyone else this side of the atlantic has been invited and has ordered - perhaps someone from Canada

Thanks for CommanderROR US folks are now getting invites - see here .

I notice that my address has been updated to reflect USA, and the drop down currency menu now includes US$. Things are moving nicely, and I can almost see the UPS man coming up my path...!!

US order charged to credit card

Well, my iRex hit on my Visa on July 6th, so it seems that the US Visa billing issue has been resolved.

My order status has not yet changed in the iRexshop, as of this morning... - still 'confirmed, processing'

BTW, it came to $813.

One step closer (and still behind the Europeans, who started shipping today).
