We heard that Amazon
was already prepping the earliest Kindle 2 orders for shipment
, but now we're seeing a flood of shipment notifications head our way. So far as we can tell, the second iteration
of the Kindle e-reader is shipping en masse, and Amazon even lists the thing as "In Stock" on its website. Of course, the original Kindle had that status for about 3.87 (okay, 5.5
) hours before slipping into backorder land for far too long, but we're hoping the supply chain's a bit more ready for the rush this go 'round.
