I hope you're right. Gives me an excuse to shop for ebooks! I like to bring various selections of short reading for people to these parties. By the way, I love your avatar. Looks a lot like the little girl who is sprawled across my lap right now.

That's been my experience using any free shipping they might offer. Since I've been using Prime (2 years) their dates have generally been spot on.

I am glad I ordered mine. Now it says "Availability: In stock on December 3, 2007. " on the product page!

Wow, who would have thought that it'd sell faster than Starbucks coffee.

Yeah I wonder how many they sold in each set, it was weird I saw it change from Dec 3rd to the 5th which is only 2 days difference... so lets say they had 1,000 units each time they have changed the date i think nearly 4 times that would make 4,000 units.. or if it was 10,000 that could be like 40,000 units.. just speculating obviously though.

I want to see how Kindle sales pan out with respect to resellers. Considering that the past year has seen a surge in craigslist/ebay scalping (e.g. wii, ps3, iphone), I wouldn't be surprised if publicity surrounding the 5-6 hour sellout didn't catch the eyes of certain enterprising individuals. In their eyes, the Kindle might seem like the perfect item, having a single distributor, massive publicity, a high price as far as gadgets go, low shipping costs, and a holiday season introduction. I guess we'll find out within the week once the next couple of shipments go out.
