The case seems to work like any other regular Amazon product...free super saver shipping or other options.
Hard to say. With the K2 I ordered the device and cover on the same order and they shipped the cover so it arrive with the K2 on release day.

Not that that means it'll happen the same way again, but I'm thinking it might.

Talking Can't Wait!

Just preordered a Graphite 3G. Can't wait for it to come! However, I was wondering if I should get a new case. This is the one I have for my Kindle 2i. http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0037ZTI1W
It fits snugly. Will it fit the Kindle 3?

Thanks.

I always check the send in as few packages as possible button when ordering from Amazon. But even at that they separated out the cover from the KWiFi. The cover is set to ship on Aug 27 with:

Quote:
Delivery estimate: September 1, 2010 - September 3, 2010
The delivery for the KWiFi is yet to be determined though. That is probably okay, but I seem to recall that when the K2 (or K1) was first released they were supposed to ship a long time before they actually did.

Brian you are right. When I bought my KDXG and cover two weeks ago I gt them both in the same package a couple of days later. But by then the KDXG had already been stocked and was available for immediate shipping.

Oh well, I'm like a kid waiting for Xmas now!

The new Kindle is a half inch smaller in width and length and a little thinner.

BTW, I ordered a K3 with 3G and WiFi.

The attachments might work, but if so the case will be a bit larger than the K3 as the K3 is smaller than the K2. You should probably call Amazon and ask them.

[edit]Oops, looks like three of us simulaneously answered your question. Sorry for the overkill.[/edit]

Losing number keys does kinda suck. They should've at least included an alt key for the top row of the keyboard or something.

Agree! The KDXG is as you described, so I wish they had done that with the K3 too.

I prefer the number keys but I became accustomed to using the SYM key with my first DX and most of the time I just need to input letters. Can't wait to see the 6" Kindle with the Pearl screen, I love my DXG.

Still have the K1, but the K3 looks very interesting. As far as i know, the Whispernet still works on the Sprint system.

Dumb question: In the new WiFi version, if I am not anywhere near a hotspot, does Whispernet still work with the AT&T system?

When the K3 arrives I guess i have to sell my K2i :-)

Will Canadians (in Montreal specifically) have access to free 3G internet?

If yes, then it's a definite yes to Kindle for me. I'm a current PRS 505 owner.

My wife and I also had an iPad but there was rarely free wifi at our hotels or other places, and it was usually at very slow speeds.

Plus there is nothing to think about with the 3G all you have to do is turn it on. With the wifi you are going to have to connect to a network. Automation is fantastic.
I'm planning to get a Droid X to replace my crappy dumbphone. This will allow me to share the 3G connection with up to 5 wifi devices, which will include my laptop and a wifi Kindle. Of course I'll be paying for that 3G connection, but I need it for other reasons and the Kindle will piggyback for free. I hope the Kindle will default to using this wifi connection when ever it is available so it should be pretty seamless, just by turning it on.

On the $139 WiFi only version, no. There is no AT&T connection. If you need the ability to connect to the AT&T system you will need the $189 3G/WiFi version.

I doubt WiFi will connect to AT&T. However, I suspect the WiFi will connect similar to the iPod touch running the Amazon app in that if you have a WiFi network to connect to you should be able to buy and download books, and you should be able to sync last page read and bookmarks and stuff with your other Kindle devices.
