Amazon Fire TV game controller on backorder, now expected to ship in late April

The game controller for the Amazon Fire TV is now on backorder. New orders are now expected to ship on April 24. Amazon is noting the delay as being "due to popular demand." It's also limited the number of controllers you can buy at one time to nine, which isn't really a limit for more normal folks.

and i'm sure as always, amazon will underpromise and overdeliver with delivery dates which is one of the reasons many people love the company.

Can you use the controller as a normal bluetooth controller on other devices? It actually looks like a decent controller to use with my Nexus 7 if it works as a standard bluetooth controller.
