Amazon to ship ad-supported Kindle April 27

Amazon will move up the shipping date for its ad-supported Kindle with Special Offers from May 3 to April 27.

Amazon said Tuesday that it will move up the shipping date from May 3 to April 27 for its ad-supported

Kindle with Special Offers.

In its statement earlier this month, Amazon projected a shipping date of May 3 for the $114 Kindle with ads. On Tuesday, CFO Tom Szkutak said that the latest Kindle will ship Wednesday.

On a conference call, Szkutak said:

One thing that we're doing -- obviously, you probably saw the launch related to -- the announcement related to Kindle's special offers, we actually will start shipping tomorrow. The team did a nice job of moving the dates up from several days from now to start shipping tomorrow.
