Still waiting on my 2nd gen Echo from The Source, says it's "In Process". They sure are slow considering I preordered such a long time ago.

Black Dot Shipped, White in Process. Guess that's what you get for free delivery and saving $25

Mine shipped today but not my batteries. Guess they are back ordered with so many here using them as fillers :-)

Ordered 2 black echo dots and a white echo, both on 27th. The dots shipped this morning, but the echo is still processing.

Not sure if they have stock problems with the white ones, since the product page doesn't even exist anymore. The CSR couldn't give me any details on what's going on when I called them during lunch. She just said it should be shipped "soon."

Got my battery two days ago. Got a shipping notice for two black Echo Dots this morning. Got a tracking number, which isn't active as yet.

Is the Echo much better than the Home? Google clearly attracts better talent than Amazon so I expect the home to become better overtime.

Im considering google home but this thread is making me 2nd guess. Which should i choose?

Not sure I understand the model that The Source uses for order fulfillment. I placed two orders for two Echo dots and AA batteries, well before release date. They shipped my batteries long ago. Now I have received tracking info for three of four Echo dots, all shipped seemingly at different times. One arrives tomorrow, one likely the next day, the other hasn't yet been picked up by Canada Post. The fourth, I don't know why that hasn't moved yet. But in any case, what could have been covered in two shipments will end up being 6, all no charge. Makes me go "hhmmm?".

We prefer our Home to our Echo Dots, but the Home IS a more premium device. We don't have a regular Echo.

I still don't even have a pre-auth on my CC for my Echo order. I was hoping to have it by the weekend but that's not looking too likely. We are eager to swap out our kitchen Dot for the full Echo.

They pre-authorize your card for funds at order but don't charge your card until things ship. If you haven't received your shipping notice, don't expect a charge. The charge appeared on my card a day after I got my shipping notice. Their fulfillment system sucks. I tried to cancel my pre-order and they replied that the order was already in process (this was Nov 24) and couldn't be cancelled.
