Leica M9 deliveries delayed as well?

UPDATE: see next post for updates on Leica availability in the US.

A reader who pre-ordered Leica M9 from Amazon few days ago just had his order canceled by Amazon:

The other day, I received an email from the Amazon Concierge stating that the approximate shipping date of this camera would be March 1st. Today I received an email from Amazon canceling my order stating that “Due to a lack of availability from our suppliers, we will not be able to obtain the Leica M9.”

Another report form dpreview (from Photo Village in NYC):

"He was just advised by Solms that Leica was changing US distributors and that he could expect NO shipments by Leica of ANY products for a full month."

This could also explain the delay of Leica X1 deliveries. My guess is that all retailers got the same message from Leica.

Has anyone in the US received a M9 delivery since 01.01.2010?
