I am amazed by the speed of delivery when I bought a second Kindle from Amazon. This is the sequence of events:
27 Sept 2010 at 11:30pm
- placed order for Kindle. Within minutes, an email arrived to confirm the order.
28 Sept 2010 at 8:32am
- email came from Amazon saying item has been shipped.
30 Sept 2010 at around 9:00am.
- DHL delivered the item to my doorstep.
The total time taken is only slightly more than 2.5 days, all the way from America. Kudos to Amazon and DHL!
