US developers - still haven't received?

I see a lot of international shipments are being delivered for the free Kindle Fire. However, international is getting the KF HD, but US is supposedly getting the KF HDX. Have US devs received it yet? I still haven't.

No, I haven't received notification from Amazon that the Kindle has shipped yet (US).

I'm not a US developer, got the Fire HD, BUT I never got a notification before (beside that shipping form I had to fill). So maybe it's the same for you guys. It just came one day. :)

I thought I remembered reading somewhere in one of these posts that someone from Amazon said the shipping window was from November 30th to december 31st. I guess that must not be the case then.

Nope, didn't receive mine neither. I did receive the email with the link to complete the form but since then there was no email received. I did check from time to time my SPAM folder just in case but nothing to be found there except the usual SPAM. I think that since Amazon shipped a non HDX to other countries they most likely had those in stock and available... US dev may be 'last' in line to get the HDX. Interesting that apparently Amazon now is changing the terms and folks outside the USA that receive already their Kindle HD are now going to receive an HDX which I think is totally fair since those Dev did participate for the same Ad program as the US ones.

Thanks, ez4nick. How was it delivered, UPS or FedEx? Also, did you have to sign for it? (Just so I am aware what to be looking out for).

It was delivered via UPS ground and yes a signature was required. I checked the tracking info and it originated very close to my house, only took overnight to come.
