Are any stores going to have them right away? I thought with the supply problems Amazon's having that stores weren't getting them until the end of the month.

They are not yet available in BB stores in the Dallas/Fort Worth area according to the BB website. As a matter of fact, the BB stores within 20 miles of my location in southwestern part of DFW metro show no availability for the new K4B either, and it was released a month ago. Of course you cannot rely on the BB website for accuracy when it comes to what is/isn't in stock.

Good luck, I hope you find one.

Well, Staples said not until November and with Best Buy it just depends on who you ask. Some say they think so, some say no, some act like they don't even know what the Kindle Paperwhite is.

So to answer your question - I doubt it.

I went to the Bestbuy around Columbus Circle in New York City this morning and they didn't have it. They said they won't be getting any until the end of the month.

None yet at a Best Buy in Pittsburgh

A Best Buy in Pittsburgh area didn't have it when I visited at lunch, and they were clueless about when it would be in. So I'm still unsure whether to order on Amazon.com or preorder from Best Buy. Don't want to do both and cancel - it's just not worth the hassle to me.

Amazon has the non-special offers version due to ship late Oct, and I would just have to wait for it to show up at my door step. But I have Best Buy gift cards, and they might get stock soon. Returns may also be easier - e.g. if it creates too much light in the bedroom while the wife tries to sleep.

Barring positive info about Best Buy stock today, I'm probably going to just order online tonight from Amazon and not worry about it.

Btw, if you can believe it, my current e-ink device is the original Sony PRS-500. I do my e-reading on an iPad and my Android phone now, but still, that's quite a feat of patience for a gadget addict!

Update - I just ordered one from Amazon. It is supposed to ship Oct 22, and arrive Oct 25th with two day shipping. I guess I value a hassle-free order over immediacy. Looking forward to seeing MR member reviews of the first units to arrive in real customer hands.

Second order must be a big one as I ordered a week ago and got the same shipdate

I believe UPS currently has a sizable supply. I don't know if they're willing to part with some.

I called a couple Best Buys in the Seattle area, and they didn't know either. Both could only tell me "the system says coming soon."

It's frustrating because I have a trip coming up in a couple weeks, and I'd like to get one before then. If I order from Amazon now, it won't ship until late October, so I guess I'll just hope they get them in soon. Otherwise I guess I'll just order online and wait.
