Dear Customer

Thank you for contacting Amazon.co.uk to inform us of this issue.

We build our catalogue on information from many sources and our
ordering system automatically estimates dispatch and delivery dates
for each item. We appreciate knowing about any errors that may find
their way into the catalogue system.

The expected release date is April 7, 2006, however please know that
publication dates are always subject to change at the discretion of
the publisher.

We have pre-ordered this title from our supplier, and expect to
obtain copies directly following its release.

So the problem is that they don't have it to deliver on 7th April? :)

To what did they 'correct' (immediately!) your estimated date?
