The new Amazon Kindle Voyage e-reader is experiencing ravenous demand since pre-orders went on sale last week. The device is poised to ship this October and already is sold out. New orders on the basic WIFI model with Special Offers will not be shipped out until November 28th and the 3G edition without Special Offers will be available December 7th 2014.
Amazon tends to release new e-readers and tablets every year, close to the holiday season. This insures that the demand will be very high to purchase them for yourself or a loved one. Since new orders will not be shipped out until December, shipping may take longer than normal due to the inundation of packages all couriers have to deal with.
The Kindle Voyage is the only e-reader that is basically sold out on Amazon. The new Kids Tablet, Fire 6,7 and 8.9 models will all be shipped out on the October 2nd. This proves beyond a shadow of a doubt, that there is still a strong market for e-ink based readers.
