Not quite... I'm still hanging on to a 32GB on order 30565xxx. I'm back to being a bit ticked off with this whole mess yet again - no re-auth on my card (just fell back off again a day ago), orange page is as static as the day I got the 6-8 week email - 1 B/O, from IN warehouse. The blue page is back to "date will follow" again, after a week of daily updates (those being the "planned delivery date" changed to the current day's date). I got the "2-week" email last Friday, 10/7, and others have stated that they've gotten shipping confirmations shortly thereafter - most in the 3055 and 3056 ranges.

Of course, calling C/S only nets you the boilerplate "your order will ship before 10/31" response, after wasting 30-60 minutes of your life on hold to be told that. I'm not going that route again.
So, is there any recourse, besides grumbling on web forums such as this one? Nope. All I can say is, congrats to those who got their orders... and here's hoping the rest of us get ours... and if not, that Kindle Fire tab is looking better every day...
