Amazon is starting to ship the WiFi-only 8.9" Fire HD models! Mine initially had an arrival date of Nov 21st, but my account has been charged and in my experience "Shipping Soon" usually means "within 24 hours." I've got one-day shipping... I know I shouldn't be overly optimistic, but I really hope I get mine for the weekend!

Who else has their 8.9" shipping soon?

I had been deliberately not looking at my order, because I chose free shipping; my initial delivery date range was between 11/28-12/4. Fortunately, yesterday when I was happily one-clicking, I discovered that I had no more funds on my gc. Lo and behold, Amazon was attempting to pay for my preorder. I hustled on out, got my gcs, loaded 'em up, and discovered Amazon had changed my free shipping to one-day shipping for $6.99. I'll take it! I now have an expected arrival date of 11/21. Can't wait! :)

My KFHD8.9 is also showing 'shipping soon,' but delivery date still shows as Nov 21. I've also ordered the Google Nexus 10; it'd be cool to get to compare them side by side, then decide which to keep.

If you have already been charged then it will ship today in my experience.

Please post reviews. I can't wait to read what you all think of the larger KF-HD.

Mine also shows shipping soon, but the estimated delivery date is still the 21st.

Someone has already posted a review.

Where did you hear that about UPS? I haven't seen anything about it.

Well, in consolation, mine's shipping from Phoenix, which is actually closer to you than me (You said you're in West Texas, right?)

Yeah, but my Amazon stuff usually comes from TN. Weird.

One of the stock tracking sites I follow stated that Amazon announced they would be shipping the 8.9 starting today.

I live in WA state, so usually my stuff ships from Kirkland, but maybe the warehouse is mostly serving people on the *other* side of the state right now....
