The new 2nd generation Kindle Paperwhite has started shipping for those that pre-ordered. Amazon shows that it will be in stock on their website starting October 10th.
A few people have already received theirs and have started posting reviews at Amazon (I don’t know how anyone can post a proper review after 1 day of use, but whatever).
I received a shipping notice last night for my Kindle Paperwhite. This morning I logged into my Amazon account to check the shipping estimate, and that’s when I noticed a hilarious error on Amazon’s website.
When I hit the “track package” button the picture of the Kindle Paperwhite suddenly morphed into a Kindle Keyboard. Now whenever I view my recent orders list at Amazon it shows a Kindle Keyboard instead of a Kindle Paperwhite.
I think it’s pretty funny. It would be even funnier if it arrived and it actually was a Kindle Keyboard.
I was checking the estimated delivery date because Amazon usually ends up shipping new Kindles earlier than expected. They almost always arrive at least a day or two earlier than Amazon initially says they will. But not this time. Everything is right on schedule.
I should be getting my new Kindle Paperwhite tomorrow afternoon, and then I can get started reviewing it. It will be interesting to see how the screen compares to last year’s Paperwhite, as well as the new Kobo Aura. The new Paperwhite is the first ebook reader to use E Ink’s latest Carta screen technology and I can’t wait to see it in person.
How about you? Has your new Kindle
Keyboard Paperwhite arrived yet?
