Ordering a Kindle Paperwhite from Amazon has been a fairly dicey process in the last few weeks. People trying to get the device shipped from the US weren't able to get their address through the overlords of Amazon, meaning that not everyone who wanted one could get it. Good news for everyone today, though, as Dick Smith pledges to stock the Paperwhite from next week.
You can pre-order the Paperwhite right now from Dick Smith online for $149. That works out around the same price, if not cheaper, than Amazon's price plus shipping.
Dick Smith, however, only seem to be stocking the Wi-Fi version of the Paperwhite rather than the 3G-enabled model.
Props to Jenneth Oranthia for spotting this!
