Kindles are just too popular, so much so that Amazon can't meet customers' demands for them.
Amazon's CEO, Jeff Bezos, put out a letter on the company's Web site today, stating that they didn't expect that so many people would want the device.
If you want a Kindle today, you have to get in line, and, most likely, wait six weeks for it to be shipped.
Bezos hopes that playing the waiting game won't last forever. "We hope to be able to announce to you within the next few weeks that we're back in stock and that when you order a Kindle, we'll ship it to you that very same day," he wrote.
One of the most popular features of the device is that you have access to the data anywhere and anytime because it uses Sprint's EVDO network, a national network that access data in the same way a cell phone does.
