Generally right before it ships, maybe a day or so before at the earliest, if I remember correctly. Therefore, it's the norm not to have a serial number at this point.

With the previous Kindles you typically got the number (in the My Kindle Page) a couple of days before it got shipped.
My point is, though, that they can't allocate you a serial number until they know which specific Kindle they're going to send you. Given that US PW2's are due for delivery from Tuesday next week, it's reasonable to expect that serial numbers will start showing up now or soon, but I wouldn't expect to see mine yet, because the UK delivery date's not until 9th Oct.

Of course.

But it still usually happens before it gets shipped. The PWs I ordered had their SNs in my account info before their shipping status changed from the initial "Not yet shipped".

Is is reasonable to expect the SN more than a week before the estimated delivery date? No.
Is it reasonable to expect the SN before the order status changes? Yes.

Sadly, no S/N yet, but did you guys notice that Amazon changed the way they display "manage my devices"?
Not sure I like the change, even though my device list got a bit out of hand over the years.

Now how about adding a folder structure to the content area of Manage my Kindle?

Oh that's an awesome idea, I'd love if they did that! I did notice they changed the display too.

The Manage Your Kindle site has changed their format AND has not shown my PW 2013 serial number yet or even shown my KFHDX 7 32 Gb 2013 at all.

That's a slow down from last year.

Plus, I don't see anywhere near the interest in this Forum this year as compared to last year for both models.

These are evolutionary, rather than revolutionary products. The PW was a revolutionary product last year.

If you need a folder structure for "Manage my Kindle", then... uh... you may need to see a doctor about a possible Kindle Acquisition Syndrome

Have you ever thought about generating a catalog for all "On Device" books, using Calibre?

You can browse by author, series, titles, genres/tags, and when you find a book, read the description and such. You can actually embed a custom column into the description. I add a custom column "Class" to the description. That column contains stuff like:

A: 1-100 (Short Story)
B: 101-200 (Novella)
...

This gives me an indication of the length while browsing in the catalog.

After I find a book I just punch the author's last name and a keyword of the title into the Kindle's search, and presto.

Funny. I said the content area - as I was too lazy to log in and look up the actual name, if it has one.

I am slowly starting to backup my books in Calibre, but would still like to have them organized on the site. It does not make any sense that I can't filter my purchases at least by genre. Plus, I don't surf from my PC, and can't put Calibre on my iPad or phone.

Oh, in the content area; yeah, you're right there. For someone who buys more than one book a month, it's completely useless.

After you get your books into Calibre, you can generate the catalog as an EPUB/AZW3 book, and read it right from your Kindle with (almost) all the browsing capabilities you'd want
