Mine is still at label-created stage and also indicates it will ship via UPS Ground. I also ordered with one-day shipping, but UPS Ground from TN to TX isn't likely to get it here overnight. But hopefully it will...

EDIT: No sooner did I write the above when UPS updated their info. One minute it shows they are waiting for the package from Amazon in TN and the next moment it has magically appeared in Mesquite, TX (about 30 miles away)! It currently lists this for EDD:

Quote:
Scheduled For Early Delivery On:
Tuesday, 10/02/2012, By End of Day
Originally Scheduled For Delivery On:
Wednesday, 10/03/2012, By End of Day
I'm not sure where they got the "Originally Scheduled For Delivery On" date as I never saw that before. Amazon always showed the EDD as Oct 2. Oh well, looks like we shouldn't put too much emphasis on what Amazon or UPS tracking is showing at any given moment as the package might be farther along than what they are displaying.

With mine the label was made in TN but the actual Kindle is shipping from PA to NJ so it will make it overnight with ground.

I just updated my earlier post so see above...

EDIT: I suspect mine probably originated from the big distribution warehouse in north TX rather than TN and that is why it suddenly turned up in Mesquite, TX at the UPS facility.

I also got the 'originally scheduled' thing when my UPS tracking finally popped:

Originally Scheduled For Delivery On:
Wednesday, 10/03/2012, By End of Day
Meanwhile, my PW is now sitting in a UPS facility a mere hour away.

You guys worry about which UPS facility its sitting in, but I ordered mine on opening day and it still isn't even showing that it's ready to ship... :-(

I placed 4 separate orders on 9/6.

1) 3G SO - shipping soon (expected 10/2) - paid for 1 day shipping
2) wifi SO - shipping soon (expected 10/2) - paid for 1 day shipping
3) fushia case - shipping soon (expected 10/2) - paid for 1 day shipping
4) black case - shipped (was expected 10/11) - standard 2 day prime shipping

So the one item that has been shipped and is due tomorrow is the one that I did not pay extra shipping fee for.

One poster on the Kindle Boards forum said she had an EDD of Oct 2 and had pre-ordered on day one. After not seeing her "Not Yet Shipped" change to "Shipping Soon" she called CS. CS informed her they ran out of stock. There is no way to tell if the CS representative was truly informed on the situation or just making assumptions.

I saw that post too, but I find it difficult to believe.

I've been trying to get her to calm down and wait--she is threatening to cancel her order. I think CS is often wrong on shipping issues, and I know Amazon is having trouble updating the shipping status for customers due to the extremely high volume of shipments. As some have noted, it is not unusual to receive an Amazon order before their website even indicates that it shipped!

I think the CS person likely made a mistake. I find it too hard to believe that they have charged our credit cards, and say it's about to be shipped, and now suddenly they made a mistake and all of the "shipping soon" people won't get their Paperwhites until the end of October? I'd like to think Amazon has a a better grip on their inventory than that. That would be a pretty big mistake.

I hope she holds out and doesn't cancel.

The person in question, according to the first post on this issue, was still in "Not Yet Shipped". I surely hope that this information is false as mine is also still indicating "Not Yet Shipped", also ordered on 9/6.

Ah I see, thanks for pointing that out. For some reason I read it as "shipping soon". I still think it's very possibly a mistake though.

I just went back and reread her posts today. Apparently her first EDD was Oct 10. Last week she went in and messed with the shipping address and the EDD changed to Oct 2. You are correct that her shipping status never progressed beyond "Not Yet Shipped."

Others in that forum are also saying that there EDD's are being pushed out to Oct 22 or later, but they seem to all have had an original EDD of next week or later. No real indication of EDD for today or tomorrow having been pushed back, as far as I can tell.

I ordered very soon after release (an hour or so) and my EDD was and is Oct 11 for the PW and Oct 31 for the cover.

I figured... KCCO - why the heck should I care... frankly, one week here or there... bah.
Maybe I am just getting old.

I ordered my PW SO on 9/6 just a couple hours after they started allowing pre-orders. I ordered it along with one of the black onyx cases. Since the time I first placed the order until this morning, it has always shown the order as being sent in two shipments with an EDD of the PW for tomorrow 10/2 and the case on 10/10. I kept checking the status all day yesterday when people here were reporting statuses changing to shipping soon etc. Mine always stayed at Not Yet Shipped, until this morning. Now it has combined into one shipment instead of two, a status of shipping soon, but a EDD of 10/10. CS at amazon would only say "we're out of stock" and that if they were still out of stock the 10/10 date was no guarantee then either. So...depressed...and disappointed
