:( I just called customer service because I wanted to know if my ship date would be changed (hopefully moved up) by the new estimated ship dates. She told me it would not change and that the current 4 - 6 week window means there will be 4 to 6 weeks from now before shipments resume. She said they aren't shipping anything right now because they're still waiting for them and they won't be sending any out until the end of February.

I'm guessing they will give outstanding orders the option of Kindle 1 or Kindle 2 with some sort of pricing variation and offer.  That's probably why they've halted shipping for now.  Just a guess.

I have tried to read all the threads about the announcements, etc.  But I'm wondering, has Amazon or some completely reliable source, reported a K2?  Or is this all just supposition?
Just wondering.

I think it's mostly speculation. I just want my K1!! I was hoping the wait was almost over but I guess it isn't.

It's strong speculation at this point. Nothing official. I'm sure some journalists have an inside ear, as this has been pretty solidly reported in some reputable newspapers, but officially still speculation.

I'm not sure what all of the hold up is on shipping, but I ordered mine on November 25th, had a ship date of feb/march, but received it a few days before Christmas.  I'm not sure that anyone has actually had to wait the entire predicted time. 
Got my fingers crossed for you.

It looks like nobody that ordered after Nov 29th has received their Kindle.
Some of us who ordered on Nov 29th are still waiting. Sometimes it feels as if I am in one of the first cars in line watching the long freight train cross the road. As DH and I are model railroaders, we do not usually mind watching the train when we are near the front of the line. It is not quite the same waiting for the freight shipment of the Kindle! ::)

Well, speaking for myself, I feel like crap and am anxious!! I find myself checking my amazon account minimum 2x a day and reading these boards like a fiend cause I refuse to buy another DTB!! REFUSE, I say!

Well, I am turning into a Kindlemaniac.  ;D  I found out in early December that I was getting my Kindle for Christmas, but that the ship date would not be until late February.  Then, I heard that many people were receiving their Kindles before Christmas even with a later ship date.  I kept hoping, hoping, and hoping ........... no Kindle yet.  Now I spend all my time reading these boards and anything else about Kindle.
