It looks like even Amazon didn’t realize how many Kindle Paperwhite models would be flying out the door. Amazon recently let it’s customers know that, due to overwhelming demand, any orders of the Kindle Paperwhite will not ship until October 22! So, if you were thinking about getting one but haven’t pulled the trigger yet, you might have to wait a bit before it shows up! (Check out our Kindle Paperwhite review.)
This is great news and it actually excites me. as much as I love the Kindle Fire and think most people are going to flock to a more typical tablet, I absolutely love reading on my Kindle. I still have my old school Kindle and still love the e-ink screen, and it looks like this type of e-reader is not going anywhere anytime soon!
By the way, if you are thinking about getting a Kindle Paperwhite, I would suggest doing it now, evn if you do have to wait. Demand for Kindles goes through the roof around the holidays, so those waiting times may just get worse, not better! Click here to check out the Kindle Paperwhite on Amazon.
