Kindle 3 Order in Canada

I order my Kindle 3 on December 31, 2010, the last day of 2010. Same as my two daughters, I do like to read books. After a long time waiting, researching , thinking, comparing, I decided to buy a Kindle from Amazon.
There are so many comparison between Kindle, nook, sony reader, kobo, etc. I still think Kindle 3 has better E-ink display.
OK, it is my own guessing. I am waiting for the oreder to be shipped to my home.
Amazon has two editions. One is USA edition. The other is International edition. Even I am in Canada, it is very close to US, I still have to order International edition.

  • Shipping Estimate: January 24, 2011 – January 25, 2011
  • Delivery Estimate: February 3, 2011 – February 16, 2011

Look, it is about one and half month I have to wait. Amazon need to improve their manufacturer performance.


OK, the price is very sensitive part of any purchase.
I order the Kindle Wireless Reading Device, Wi-Fi, Graphite, 6″ Display with New E Ink Pearl Technology
Item(s) Subtotal: $139.00
Shipping & Handling: $9.98

  1. Hi David, did you need to pay any duty/tax/broker fee when you received you kindle. Please email me if you have an chance. Thanks

  2. 居然要shipping这么久,严重影响购买欲望啊。

  3. Hi David!
    Were a bunch of Canadians on the Amazon boards that also waits for their Kindle. They stopped delivery around November 20th to focus on sales in the US. None of the orders made since November in Canada have ship. At the best, we have shipping dates starting next week. Not sure it’s a manufacturing problem more than a “stalling international sales” problem. We’re all hoping to receive them soon! 🙂

    The Amazon Discussion Forum Im talking about is on the Amazon site itself in the Kindle store under “Canadian Kindle Watch” 🙂
