Elizabeth posting in the Amazon Forum thread about the Kindle 3, quoted an answer she said she received when she asked, though she didn't say who gave the information, but it was an email reply.
It looks good. Here is what Elizabeth wrote:
' I asked a few days ago before they upped the date on the product page, here is what they replied per e-mail:
Orders placed before 8 p.m. Pacific Time on August 1st will still ship by the August 27th release date.
Orders placed before 10 p.m. Pacific Time on August 5th will ship on or before September 4th.
Orders placed before 12 p.m. Pacific Time on August 12th will ship on or before September 8th.
Orders placed after 12 p.m. Pacific Time on August 12th will ship on or before September 12th. '
Many will have noticed that any Kindle 3 order, made at this point (starting yesterday), will now be expected to ship on September 17.
