Mine was scheduled to be delivered on the 7th but they have authorized payment and says shipping today?  Should i be excited or is it just a tease,?

Hopefully not a tease.  ;)  Mine was scheduled to be delivered on the 6th, but I just received an email saying it's been shipped with a delivery date of Nov 1st!

    I feel left out. I paid for 1 day to get it on the 3rd and its still saying the same. Preparing for shipping and still says I get it Friday. I am starting to think I wasted money on the 1 day ship.

    New Oasis available for pickup tomorrow at Best Buy!

    I ordered mine from Amazon a little late with a November 14 delivery date. Today I was perusing the mobile reads forum and learned that Best Buy has the new Oasis available for in store pickup tomorrow! I just bumped my date up by ordering from there! Woohoo!

    That's great, spiritedcharm. I did that with the 1st Oasis -- got it from Best Buy because it was so back ordered from Amazon.  And I merged your post into the general Kindle Watch thread!

    I just called Amazon CS and was told not to worry about it; it'll be here tomorrow. But it hasn't even shipped. It was supposed to ship on the 27th for a Halloween delivery. I'm close to cancelling and just picking one up at Best Buy tomorrow, if there's any left. This has gone from Christmas morning anticipation to just more damn stress.

    Hi everyone,

    Best Buy still has the Oasis available for order with in store pickup for tomorrow at a lot of stores.  Hope this helps someone get one earlier than expected!

    I was expecting mine on November 6th, but I just got an email that it shipped today (with the cover, which was scheduled to arrive Oct. 31st) to be delivered before 8pm tomorrow!  What a nice surprise.

    I just looked at UPS tracking and so far only in the label stage, which means UPS probably doesn't have it yet. Maybe they are sending it from somewhere in NYC.

    Hope it arrives before I leave for work (4pm).

    Got my shipping notice just after 9 p.m. Carrier is AMZL US . . . . . so not UPS. :(  Tracking info says "Package has left seller facility and is in transit to carrier". I should have it in less than 24 hours! :D

    10:03 pm. Still says shipping today with arrival tomorrow. Must trust the Amazon gods to do the right thing. Sigh.

    I just checked and the Oasis arrived at the USPS at 5:02 AM.  Should come today. The cover shows today as the delivery date, but hasnt shipped yet.

    Mine is showing out for delivery.   Now if they will be nice enough to deliver to my house a bit earlier than normal like yesterday (noon vs 3pm), that would be just fine.

    yeah, I'm hoping for delivery earlier in the day as well. I have a Chorale rehearsal in the afternoon and will have to leave the house by 1:30 at the latest. I may be home briefly between 3:30 and 4 but have a church service this evening at 5 followed by choir rehearsal. AND it's Halloween so I plan to leave the porch light off, as we won't be home, but don't really want a package laying on the porch during the designated time. Our local neighbors are all cool, but, still.

    Also for anyone interested, Pocket-Lint has a review up already...

    http://www.pocket-lint.com/review/142508-new-amazon-kindle-oasis-review-what-s-the-story-reading-glory



    Just read that review and this caught my eye:

    The other thing to note about the Kindle Oasis is that there's no "special offers". Lower tier Kindles get these adverts in exchange for a slightly cheaper price. On the Kindle Oasis you're spared that option.


    I don't think that's true. The one I ordered I expect to come with Special Offers; I could have paid $20 more to get it without. Maybe the difference is they're a UK reviewer?

    I don't know... I have to admit I didn't even read the review yet. But maybe they got a reviewer's edition and didn't know about the option.

    That's possible . . . don't really see how else they could have played with it long enough for such a detailed review when they're mostly still on delivery trucks. :D

    Hey now. Mine shipped last night. And my Echo just told me that my Oasis has arrived. And there it is, on my doorstep. 9AM. Turns out I had nothing to worry about. I'll be busy the next hour or ten.  :D :D :D :D :D
