Hey everybody, enjoy yours! I will take my pleasure in your pleasure, if you don't mind.

Look at the bright side! When your family does get back on it's feet financially, the version of the Kindle will leave the DX in the dust. It's probably a good idea to skip first generation iterations like the DX there will probably be hardware flaws.
When you buy in they would have ironed out the bugs and it will be cheaper.

I ordered my KDX 5 to 10 minutes into the press conference and my arrival date is June 16th. I selected the standard shipping (3-5 business days) and live in New England.

Now we want to see lots of pictures, please, whoever gets it early. Also please comment if there is any difference in flex between the K2 and the KDX, if you have both.

I am old enough to remember six to twelve weeks shipping time for cereal premiums. These shipping times are miniscule.

I ordered mine today. The estimated delivery date is June 15. Unfortunately, I'll be leaving for camp on the 14th and will have to do without my very first dedicated e-reader until I get back.
