Those who may have been waiting for the Kindle Paperwhite to begin shipping before placing an order, well, today is your day. Simply put, Amazon has officially begun shipping the Kindle Paperwhite. That does come with a catch though. Those who have already placed an order can look forward to a shipment. Otherwise, according to the note on the Amazon website;

“Due to popular demand, orders placed today are expected to ship the week of October 22nd.”

That being said, no surprise in regards to the pricing. The Kindle Paperwhite is priced at $119 for the Special Offers model and $139 without. In addition, those looking for the 3G-equipped Paperwhite can expect to pay $179 for the Special Offers model or $199 without. Otherwise, aside from the positive reviews that we have been reading, the Kindle Paperwhite has a 6-inch Paperwhite display with built-in light, internal storage for about 1,100 books, Wi-Fi connectivity, a weight of just 7.5 ounces and a battery life of up to 8 weeks.
