T1 UK pre-orders now shipping

I've just got an email that the T1 (black) I pre-ordered from the Sony UK site has now shipped and I should receive it in 3-5 days.

Can't wait!

When did you order it? And why haven't I heard anything about mine yet ?

I ordered it just over a week ago and choose the store to be the Cribbs Causeway store in Bristol.

As to why you haven't got yours... Be patient, I've sure your's going to be out for dispatch soon.

Maybe my store got their stock before yours?

I ordered mine on 30th September, but just through the online store, not a local shop - I'm sure there's some mysterious algorithm governing the shipping order, but at least if they've started shipping some of them, it shouldn't be too long now.

We're going away this weekend, so it would be really nice to have it in time for that, though it might take me a while to be able to bring myself to go anywhere without a supply of paper books in my bag.

I've got my email for the red one! can't wait, but my address on the confirmation appears to be missing vital data, (like I informed them previously). I hope it still arrives at my house.

EDIT:
Just got a text from City Link. My reader will be delivered on Tuesday 11th

Odd, I wasn't given an option on the website for ordering if I didn't select a store. Very strange.

I wouldn't worry about it (yet), the emails have only just started being sent out.

I haven't had a email, but on their site the order now shows as dispatched - it was still listed as open first thing this morning.

I suppose I'd better go and see about getting the Calibre plug-in.

As long as the website has the right details, don't worry about the email advising you it's dispatched, we've just done it on this site for you.

Yep, better have a look at the T1 driver for Calibre, or I'm going to have to resort to the the Sony software.

5 workdays would equal a week, that would be a bout the same time we get our t1's (Netherlands), makes sence.

I called Sony after reading this thread and they said my pre-order shipped today. They said it will be with me at the latest Wednesday. Very pleased as it means I'll have it in time for my short break.

The email arrived this evening.

This is my first e-reader (apart from my old Palm, and a couple of reader apps on my phone) so I'm not sure yet how I'll handle actually putting books on it. I have a couple of hundred sitting in Calibre ready to go - mostly free, but I've removed the DRM from the bought ones, so between sorting that out and the imminent arrival of iOS 5, I'll have plenty to play with this week .

Got my emails as well now, telling me it will be coming here tomorrow. Chances are it will come when there is no-one in though so I'll end up going to pick it up. Should have it by Wednesday then

Great! I looks like we are all getting ours this week.

Glad the emails are turning up now.

Well if Calibre isn't ready by the time mine turns up, I'll have to put them on a micro SD card then, unless the Sony software is actually any good.
