My paperwhite 3G/wifi ads is arriving on 10/10/12. Ordered 9/6 p.m. Orange smart Case Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Leather Cover, Onyx Black (does not fit Kindle or Kindle Touch) arriving on 10/17.
The light and brighter screen is what sold it for me. Certainly could make due with my Kindle Touch, but I couldn't resist. One for just reading in any light and one for when I want to listen to audible or text to speech.

Kindle Paperwhite Wi-fi with Special Offer. Placed an order on Sept 8th. Estimated delivery date is Oct 3rd with free two-day shipping Amazon Prime Trial.

I ordered the Paperwhite wifi with ads the second I found the link. Delivery sch. for Oct 3. I ordered a cover today, sch for Oct 31. Haven't decided if I want it or not, but figured I'd better get in line.

I ordered PW w/out ads immediately after the press conference on the 6th. 2-day shipping. Delivery estimate is the 11th. That's a surprise. I pre-ordered the K2 & K3 and had release day delivery on both.

I figure the delivery dates are worse-case. Won't be surprised if Amazon improves on them. I still haven't decided whether to cancel my PW. So, I don't mind a date of 10/11.

Nina, did you order the 3G version? The 3G version has more demand and therefore later delivery date.

Ordered 3G Paperwhite with Special Offers within an hour after the page was displayed; with 2 day shipping delivery estimate is Oct 3.
Also ordered the fuchsia cover about 5 - 10 minutes later; also Oct 3.

Just a comment -- don't order any additional items, choose Free Super-Saver Shipping, and mark yes in group my items together. If you want one thing faster, order one thing.

I ordered one PW wifi and one PW 3G on Thursday afternoon, a few hours after they were announced. I will cancel one before ship date, but they both say to expect delivery on Oct 2. The case I ordered, however, says it won't arrive until Oct. 31.

I wondered if somebody would start a thread like this ;)

I ordered the Paperwhite 3G without special offers, and also an ink blue case. Free Prime shipping.
Placed the order on Sep 6, late afternoon Pacific time I think.
Estimated delivery date for the Kindle is October 11.
Estimated delivery date for the case is October 31.

Nina says:
Nope, Julius, I ordered the wifi. Since my iPad has hotspot capability, I didn't spring for the 4G. I didn't have any other items on the order. And, since I have Prime, I chose 2-day shipping

I'm surprised that it's not showing release day delivery since I ordered as soon as the Paperwhite was available (was actually refreshing during the press conference). Looks like the special offer Paperwhites may be shipping sooner than the more expensive version.

That's entirely possible...my paperwhite with ads has an Oct. 2 delivery date with one day shipping. I ordered as soon as the link went live Thursday. My Fire HD 32 GB has a delivery date of Oct 25...but the 16GB one said shipping Sept 14.

I think you are right. I placed PW with and without special offer in my shopping cart without actually placing an order. The one with special offer has delivery date of Oct 3rd while the one without it has delivery date of Oct 17th.

I kept refreshing the page during the press conference, but the links didn't become active for me until a couple of hours later, and I ordered then.

Just changed my pre-order to the WiFi with ads and the black case and they both have a delivery date of Oct 2nd :) Prime shipping with next day air.

Smart move. When you get it, you can remove the ad immediately by going to your Kindle account and paying the price difference to Amazon.
