The Kindle Touch was originally scheduled to ship next week, but yesterday Amazon started telling buyers that their orders would be shipping ahead of schedule.
Amazon sent out an email announcing the good news. The Kindle Touch is now scheduled to ship tomorrow
alongside the Kindle Fire.
We have good news! We’re able to get this part of your order to you faster than we originally promised:
“Kindle Touch, Wi-Fi, 6″ E Ink Display – includes Special Offers & Sponsored Screensavers”
Previous estimated arrival date: November 22, 2011
New estimated arrival date: November 15, 2011 – November 16, 2011
There’s no word yet on how many pre-orders Amazon got the for the Kindle Touch; Amazon hasn’t leaked any info, unfortunately. This is a marked difference from the Kindle Fire, which is rumored to sell 5 million units this year.
