Just checked, and it looks like I placed mine on the 1st. Like some others in this thread, I did complain to Amazon.
The next day it showed up as in-process, with one-day shipping, so it might be worth firing of an email.

Just wondering when did you place the order? my order was placed on Jan-4/2013 and I still have the estimate delivery between Feb-4 to Feb-26, no firm date yet.

I shot an e-mail earlier this morning asking if it was possible that the K-01 would be delivered before World Pentax Weekend, and a customer service rep sent back a rather lengthy reply. Basically, he said that they're working with their supplier to get them out as fast as they can. I'm just about tempted to cancel my order, which I placed on Jan. 10, and grab either a black or white one from B&H.

I loved buying mine from B&H. The white one is really awesome looking and I got it in two days. It's my backup camera to my k30 and I bought it for the lens, but I like it and was pleasantly surprised when I shot my first couple of test shots with it. It feels good in the hands and I love the looks.

Yeah, I go to B&H for the majority of my photographic needs. Never had a problem with them.

The things that are holding me back from cancelling and going for the white one are: 1) Owning such a novelty as the big yellow brick and 2) Dirtying up the white one.

BTW, can anybody with the white K-01 give some feedback as to how much of a worry it is to dirty your camera?

Its rugged and grooved, and is a creamy white, not a pure white. I don't think dirt will be an issue.

I've had my white K-01 since mid-November and have used it quite a lot since then. So far it still looks great. Might get a black one as a backup from B&H.

The black kit just came down in price at B&H to $358. You could sell the lens and the camera would be almost free.

Jan 2, 2013. I also noticed on Amazon that about 9 yellow k-01/40XS kits became available a couple of days ago, at a higher price, surprised they didnt backfill the orders instead of putting them up for sale. I think I got mine because I got on the chat desk with Amazon. I also got my shipping to Oz waived because of the long delay.

Thanks, Selar, I just checked now, the order status has been revised to "Delivery Estimate: Monday February 25, 2013 by 8:00pm". So, that is a good, can't wait to get my hands on the k-01. It is the focus-peeking function that I am looking forward to since my k-5 does not have.

The yellow is REALLY yellow. Very saturated. Probably breaks histograms if taking a picture of it.

I ordered on Dec. 28th and just got it today. Seems worth the wait for the good price (especially since they ain't making anymore!).

Ordered Jan 4th, and see my date has been now firmed up to Feb 26th. I'm actually likely going to cancel this order though, as I got my black one from B&H yesterday. Have offered up this yellow one to a friend....but he's less than enthusiastic about the colour. Just to share....took a pick of my pimped out K-01. I'm actually really liking the form and size. Can't really comment on it in full, until its had some real world experience.
