I wonder if they wait until they have a certain amount of orders for an item and then do a bulk order

Oh and the cynic in me says that I fully expect to see them pop up on ebay while we sit on our hands waiting for ours to be delivered

Mine has shipped too, less than a week after ordering. I don't think they wait for a certain amount of orders to pile up as they have a limited amount of time to process the order and if they don't ship by then the order gets cancelled. But I do think that they wait as long as they can to do as much of a bulk order as they can.

Now to see how long it takes, and how much it bloody costs (import fees in my country are highest for anything (coming) from China. Which is the main reason I did not ship by DHL.

Is there no minimum figure for which if your items are less then you don't pay duty? In the UK anything less than £18 inc shipping does not get charged duty. Over £18 and from outside the EU, it's import duty plus 20% VAT on top which makes a big difference. If your taxes are even worse, that's really bad.

Officially but honestly things in Mexico can be more convoluted than a Gordian Knot (to study a Bachelor's here I had to revalidate and legalize my transcripts/studies from my high school in Canada, which is reasonable, and my junior high...less reasonable but understandable, and my elementary/primary schoo which just had me going)

Umm, you should check your order's tracking number. Mine was supposedly sent the same day as yours but I think that was only when it was registered with China Post. Mine wasn't picked up until yesterday...

I have this cover, have been using it for about two months, and bending the cover back NEVER causes the Aura to go into sleep mode. Perhaps you had a defective case?

I just ordered this one from eBay for $10.99. I got red, they had black and purple too, but they seem to be going fast, only one red one left!

Thank you for the heads up on this; I didn't see it last night. Red was what I wanted so I jumped on it and ordered it.

That's not going fast, if you check they had one left and had sold only one.

Also it's the same one some of us ordered (slightly cheaper) and shipping from the same place.

Now let's hope it ships faster than ours.

It looks great; what a difference in size in comparison with the PW - I had the same case for my PW1. Now I wish my new case would hurry up and get here, just checked and China post says it has arrived in the UK but the UK post can't find any information. Fingers crossed it arrives soon, on Sunday it will be 3 weeks since I ordered it.

I keep looking out on ebay for other colours, but haven't found any yet. I missed the one listed above, probably because it isn't available to the UK.

May I say I hate you? A hate fueled by envy

And the Aura looks so cure beside the paperwhite.

I just wish I knew in what country mine currently is. All I know is that it has left China and has not officially arrived in Mexico according to the tracking number.

Yeah, you ordered before us, but if I remember correctly they were all shipped at the same time.
