Psst! You can butt in line, so to speak, if you’ve ordered a $50 Fire but Amazon now says it can’t ship until late October due to heavy demand. Check stores like Best Buy locally. I’m picking mine up tomorrow at a BB in Falls Church, Virginia, and then I’ll cancel my mail order (thanks for the jog, Nate).
Related: Early reviews from Best Buy customers. Four out of five stars. Caveat: Just six customers as of this writing (though I suspect many more will follow once more people have had a chance to try out the Fire).
