Noted on a Kindle thread, but the Kindle is back in stock as of 1:30 PM (PST) today (Saturday the 19th). Let's see for how long...

That's really what it says. Let's see if we can cause a slashdot effect on Amazon.com.

Yep. Ordered a second one (for the spouse) on April 15, and it shipped out today.

Friday was a pretty amusing day to watch the Kindle home page. It went from "in stock, shipping immediately" to "shipping April 24" to "in stock soon" and then settled on "in stock April 24th." Now it's just "in stock."

I meant from the point in which eInk announced that they would be doubling screen production. Then again, this may not be directly related.

E Ink did not announce it was doubling screen production. That was PVI. The maker of the displays.

So how long (when) did they stop shipping?

I think they offered this first in November of 2007?

Yes. The first Kindles were sold on 19 November. It took Amazon 6 months to the day to solve the supply problems.

This could very well mean that sales of the Kindle are dropping off.

I strongly suspect that it is a little of both. Amazon has likely done what they can to up production and as any product ages, it's sales normally slow.

What will be interesting is to see if it STAYS in stock. Many potential buyers don't web browse on the weekend, being busy with family, so may not be aware.
Time will tell....
