@EchoingHalls I completely understand where you're coming from. But I'm also not surprised for them for keeping it silent for now. Whatever they announce will be dissected and torn apart immediately by members of the community, so they're probably being extra careful for now not to fuel the fire even more.
Logistics aren't easy. Google probably intended earlier orders to be shipped out first. But in reality, once the orders arrives at the warehouse, there's no guarantee. It depends to those that are actually processing the shipments, as they may or may not respect the order of the orders. I actually used to work on these kind of stuff so I kinda know 😛
Go to store.google.com and click on your account profile picture in the top right.
From there pick Orders.
You can find your order and see the ship date.
I ordered mine on July 7 and I have a ship date of 11/26.
I know where the order is. It still hasn't shipped. ETA showing Nov 23-Dec 3rd.
The issue or complaint really is that others who ordered later got their products shipped before some of us who ordered right on the 6th.
