+ - Amazon delays new Kindle Paperwhite orders 4-6 weeks!

Submitted by

destinyland writes "One day after its official release, Amazon has already sold out of the Kindle Paperwhite. Pre-orders "have far exceeded our expectations," an Amazon executive announced Monday, and new orders have now been delayed 4-6 weeks. (Amazon's also imposing a limit on new orders to two per customer.) One Kindle blogger asks whether the demand is due to positive reviews of the new Kindle with its built-in screen lighting, or if Amazon manufactured their first batch in a smaller-than-usual quantity, "to help create the perception that their new device has already become so wildly popular that it was selling out — when in fact, Amazon just hadn’t built that many of them in the first place.""
