Yes, the way I read it is they've sold out the first batch they expect to get, and the second will come a week later.

My order est. is end of Sept. and I ordered it when it was released. If they delay too long, I will cancel and just wait for the new Sony, which probably won't be too far behind.

My order estimate has gone out to 7-11 October, although the product page still estimates shipping on or before 4 September. I did choose free shipping, but that doesn't take a month! When they slipped a week, it looked to me like marketing, but a month is a more credible delay for producing significantly more volume.

I'm still excited. I think it's worth waiting for. I do hope I get my Kindle before my next scheduled travel in October.

Reads to me exactly like the initial release has been delayed a week:

"Initially it was expected that Seattle based retailer will ship the new version of Amazon Kindle by August 27. However Amazon.com has delayed it for a week to September 4."

Of course, I don't know how accurate this site's information is.

I was going by what Amazon said, not the site linked. It sounded like they were just misinterpreting the info Amazon had posted.

You are likely right. I hope. I just ordered one yesterday and wasn't even given an estimated date. Hopefully I will get it before Christmas. lol.

Mine was ordered the day after the pre-order started and I still haven't got a shipping estimate but the case that I ordered at the same time says it will be shipped on the 27th.

Hopefully you'll get it a lot sooner than Christmas . I ordered one on the 28th and one on the 29th and they just say "We'll notify you via e-mail when we have an estimated delivery date for this item" in the order status for both of them.

Hey! Mine says that now too - a couple of hours ago it said 7-11 October!

I wonder if they've been swamped with orders.
