Amazon’s Kindle 3 is Already Sold Out

Amazon sells out of Kindles

Amazon’s latest Kindle has only been available for pre-order for a few days, but it’s already sold out. Amazon says on their website, “Due to strong customer demand, Kindle is temporarily sold out. Order now to reserve your place in line. Orders are prioritized on a first come, first served basis. Orders placed today are expected to ship on or before September 4th.” This includes both the Wi-Fi and the 3G versions of the Kindle.

When Amazon announced the new lighter, faster Kindle 3 last week, they said it would start shipping on August 27. However, between the new design and the lower price (the Wi-Fi only Kindle is $139 and the 3G version is $189), there is apparently high demand for Kindle 3. Perhaps this is a sign that the Kindle is well on its way to becoming mainstream.
