Officially, the Kindle Fire isn't supposed to launch until tomorrow, November 15th. But, if you were one of the impatient many that jumped on the chance to pre-order the Amazon-branded tablet, the online retailer has a surprise -- it's already on its way. In a statement, Dave Limp (VP of Amazon Kindle), said the company was "thrilled to be able to ship Kindle Fire to our customers earlier than we expected." We already knew that early sales of the device had exceeded expectations and production had to be ramped up to meet demand. Putting them in the mail 24 hours ahead of schedule is really just icing on the cake. Sure, it's not the full week that Kindle Touch purchasers are enjoying, but when it comes to the latest gadgets, getting our mitts on it even just a few hours early is a pleasant surprise.
