Amazon began shipping out Kindle Paperwhite pre-orders on Monday, but now the e-reader is showing an expected ship date of four to six weeks. From the looks of it, the delay applies to all Kindle Paperwhite models, which include the Wi-Fi and 3G versions, as well as the versions with and without ads.
While Amazon could conceivably receive a new load of Kindle stock in the next few weeks, I wouldn’t bet on getting your hands on one until next month. Best Buy and other retailers will also offer the e-reader soon in-stores.
We’ve contacted Amazon about the Paperwhite delay and will update if we hear back. More
