Amazon clarifies the K3 shipping snafu

Someone just tweeted me a link to a Kindle discussion forum. One Kindle owner asked when her Kindle 3 will ship, and this is what she was told:

  • Orders placed before 8 p.m. Pacific Time on August 1st will still ship by the August 27th release date.
  • Orders placed before 10 p.m. Pacific Time on August 5th will ship on or before September 4th.
  • Orders placed before 12 p.m. Pacific Time on August 12th will ship on or before September 8th.
  • Orders placed after 12 p.m. Pacific Time on August 12th will ship on or before September 12th.
  • Now this is interesting. Each full week of orders is getting bumped back 4 days. It looks like this time around they were prepared for the volume of orders.

    Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
