Amazon began taking orders for their newest Kindle about a week ago, and now preordering the device will not even get you one on launch day. Looking up its product page on Amazon gives you a big red "Sold Out" message.
E-reader fans have definitely been looking to the "Kindle 3," with its lighter design, improved functionality, and comparatively wallet-friendly price tag. Pre-ordering now only gives you a "place in line" with no definite ship date. I guess standing in line is not only reserved for camping out in front of stores anymore
