Me. I'm hoping the battery life is good and that it doesn't have the "blue LED" issue like the 7" version. If it does, I'll just have to see how noticeable it is in everyday use. The HDX 8.9 is the right combination of size, weight, and display resolution. I'm hoping it's delivered before my estimated 11/20/13 date.

I had a delivery date of 12/2.
I mistakenly interpreted the 15% sale to apply to the 8.9 so I cancelled (and tried to re-order) my order.
Now not sure what I plan to do.
I have the HDX 7 and the screen and sound are REALLY nice.

I was going to order 8.9 for comparison to the 7 after realizing how light it is. At this point (delivery date in Dec) I will likely just try it out at Best Buy ..although I really prefer buying directly from Amazon.

And I thought I was the only one that keeps checking if my HDX 8.9 64gb has shipped! Delivery date is Nov. 7. Still says pre-ordered. I was surprised that my delivery date was Nov. 7, did not order until Oct. 27.

UPDATE - received an email late last night telling me that it's been shipped! Didn't think it would deliver in 1 day...but checked FedEx and status is "Out for Delivery" and should arrive by 8pm today!! I was concerned I hadn't received any emails, like others on here have and my status never changed from Pre-Ordered. Thanks AMAZON for shipping it out as promised!

I ordered 2 different covers (like most): Maxboost (ship 11/7 to arrive 11/13-11/15) and Poetic Slimbook (ship 11/12 due to arrive 11/15-11/19). I originally was going to order the Orgami...but between the price and the delivery date - I cancelled the order. Hopefully one, if not both, of these other covers will work for me just as well.

I ordered my FHDX 8.9 (32G WiFi) on Sept 25th, I still have a shipping date of Nov 7th...I'm happily surprised. Keeping fingers and toes crossed it's not delayed since I ordered it so early! Like others, I keep checking it several times a day :)

Looks like the 64GB is in tight supply. It is December delivery while 32GB is in November. I guess I could always order the 32GB and if I need 64GB exchange it.. just the karma part of me would rather someone who REALLY wants the 32GB to get it.

I ordered my HDX 8.9" 64GB on 9/25 and it said I was to have it by tomorrow but now it says 11/11/13! :-( I am SO disappointed!

Gah, I am going spare . Allegedly I will get mine tomorrow, but its been 'preparing for shipment' since last night. No tracking number to check. Oh well, in amazon we must trust right? Flipside is, if it doesn't show up tomorrow, I will be incensed.

Ever seen a fat white guy crying over stupid insignificant first world problems?

Well, you probably won't tomorrow, either, but I *WILL* at least have to console myself with a good coffee or something...

Mine still says "preparing for shipment."

Click on the Track Package button anyway. Mine still shows on the Order Page as Pre-Ordered but the Tracking shows a Tracking Number and where it's at.

Mine says pre-ordered when I look at my list of orders, but it still says preparing for shipment when I click on the track package button.

Bookgirl says:
Same here - says pre-ordered, but preparing for shipment on the track button. YES!
Yvette - I wonder why yours has been postponed. I ordered my HDX 8.9" 64gb on Oct. 27 and it should be delivered tomorrow. Mine is the wifi only.

Could the difference be With Ads and Without Ads?

I ordered a Wifi Only 64 GB HDX 8.9 with ads on Octobrer 16, was told it would be delivered Nov 7 and got the email last night that it was shipped and I will have it on Nov 7.

Checked first thing when I got to work this morning and it showed a tracking number and delivery by 8:00 pm tomorrow. 2 hours later I got the text notification that it had shipped. I so cannot wait for it to get here.

Well as T. Clark said, there was some kind of supply issue with the 64gb. I ordered the 32gb (Nov 25th arrival) and was going to change mine when I saw the 64gb was still shipping for Nov.7th, but within a few hours it changed to Dec. 3rd.

Patience may be a virtue, but right now I am channeling my inner Varuca Salt, "I want it Nooooooowww!"

Ironically the Origami which I was thinking of canceling because of reviews has changed from Nov.20 and has just shipped.

Lara, that *is* rather an irony, isn't it? The accessory whose Amazon expectation setting was some vast date in the future, leaving your nice device unprotected will be in hand well ahead of schedule....

Um... Except, well, the device itself you expected just around the corner will have you holding an empty cover for a bit.
