Big news this afternoon for those of us who were among the first to order the new Kindle Touch when it became available for pre-order on September 28! The original release date for the Kindle touch was to have been November 22, but Amazon has begun sending out emails like the one below, letting customers know that some Kindle Touch shipments will begin going out as early as this Tuesday, November 15, the same day as the announced release date for the Kindle Fire!
Please click here to place your order for a Kindle Touch or a Kindle Fire. For orders placed right now, Amazon is showing that the Kindle Touch will ship in 8 to 9 days and the Kindle Fire will ship in 3 to 5 days.
Here’s the email that Amazon is sending out to some Kindle Touch buyers today.
