Not too long ago we covered a story in which some customers, including one friend of TechnoBuffalo, were getting alerts that Chromecast orders from Amazon wouldn’t ship until late October or early November. Amazon said that those emails were sent in error and that anyone who placed an order in early August can expect their unit much sooner.
Here’s a copy of an email that was sent out to customers this morning:
Thank you for your recent Chromecast purchase. Earlier today, you received an email indicating an incorrect estimated order delivery of late October. We are actively fulfilling orders weekly based on customer order date and all customers who placed orders prior to August 7 should receive their orders in the coming weeks and into mid-September. We will notify you as soon as your item ships and apologize for the confusion.
It sounds like Amazon has enough units to actually fulfill orders now, which means we might not have to worry about inventory problems just yet. Hopefully this is good news for anyone who is waiting.
