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.
