Could have knocked me over with a feather. Wouldn't put much credence in it except it has a specific Fed Ex tracking number. We'll see I guess.

Same status for me!!!

But that might only mean they prepared the package and shipping info for FedEx Smartpost in advance of the actual package pickup/dropoff (as opposed to having it in FedEx's hands already). In any case, it seems very close indeed!

Btw, assuming everyone's ships the same way as mine, if you want to see more about how it will get to you with the free shipping option:

Yes that's quite possible and probably more likely. But since there is a Fed Ex tracking link we can check it periodically to see if there is an actual pickup. If and when that appears we'll know something.

Meanwhile my Cybook is in my work bag and all my books are loaded on there. My ex-girlfriend is borrowing my old E-bookwise.

In looking at the Sony site they're showing actual ship date of 9-26 with an estimated delivery date of 10-4. The cradle which I also ordered shows out of stock and shipping date unknown.

I'll post something as soon as (and IF) I see Fed Ex pickup data unless someone else does first.

I ordered yesterday and it showed an estimated ship date of 9/28 and it actually shipped (at least got assigned a tracking number) the same day. I recall someone indicating that as of yesterday afternoon 130 units were being readied for shipment and 50 were still available.

Most people that ordered yesterday had the 9/28 estimated ship date.

So after all the time Sony took to release my baby they didn't even build up a decent stock?

They didn't seem worried about running out, but they also (presumably) have retail locations to supply.

I just checked my order on their web site. I ordered at 6:36pm yesterday and I evidently missed the first batch. The site says the device is currently out of stock but they expect to ship mine 9/29.

But for $112 I should still have it Monday right?
