    3x more EVOs sold on launch day than the Pre and Instinct in the first three days...that's impressive. I know my Sprint store had over 200 EVOs in stock for launch.

    Would love to know the actual number. I'm having trouble finding how many Pres sold in their first three days...somewhere between 50,000 and 100,000....so the Evo sold between 150,000 and 300,000 units on day one?

    Yeah I'm guessing that sounds about right if the numbers for the pre sales are correct. I know the RS where I work stated that RS had 67,000 pre orders for the EVO and it sold out everywhere.

    Maybe I misread some of the articles, but from my interpretation, they were saying that the EVO outsold the Pre AND the Instinct combined.

    Couldnt figure out why everyone in the comments was lying about the Evo reviews, battery life and 4G until I realized its a Gizmodo article.

    Effing apple fanboy sites.

    Sprint Nextel (NYSE:S), the third U.S. wireless carrier, reported that its 4G phone, the HTC EVO 4G, provided record sales figures for the company stores around the country. The company reported temporary shortages at many of its 22,000 sales locations, including Sprint retail stores, national retail partners. FBR Capital confirmed the shortages through its channel checks, they estimate total HTC EVO 4G device sales of 320,000 on June 4th; 100,000 gross additions and 220,000 upgrades from existing Sprint customers; initial sales volume was significantly higher than expected. Sprint’ s new 4G-phone launch was ahead of Apple’s iPhone launch today, which has positive implications for gross postpaid additions, churn and net postpaid additions. Sprint shares jumped close to 3% in early pre-market trading.

    I talked with the guy at my local Sprint store. Here in New England he said there were 200k units available on Friday, when I bought mine on Saturday the only reason they had any left was due to the network issue on Friday and they couldnt process any transactions. They were to receive a couple hundred Saturday afternoon. When I went back yesterday to port my number they were completely sold out. I wonder if sales were close to a million units?

    Indeed.

    I ended up buying mine straight up at radio shack. Springs provisions service was down, so I activated later in the evening, over the phone.

    Good news for Sprint, especially since they didn't even really advertise the phone. I've talked to a lot of people who left other carriers for the phone. It might have helped Sprint stop the bleeding.

    The sales should really take off when advertising starts.

    It also allows other companies to see what they can do on Sprint, and we won't have to keep playing fourth banana. Palm tried to allude that it was Sprint that was the problem, when it was really good software, with a very bad exterior that turned people off.

    Same here. There were people lined up in the morning, but I went in at 11am and they had some left. They were sold out by the end of the day, though. I'm glad they were prepared for the high demand. Kudos to Sprint for that!

    Oh, and I called the Best Buy closest to me just in case Sprint had run out and BB had already "pre-sold" all of their Evos.

    Palm's initial advertising campaign was terrible. It certainly did nothing for their image or their sales to feature a creepy girl in their Pre commercials. The biggest negative for me on the Pre was the poor build quality. The hardware was flimsy and it seemed as if Palm was too anxious to release a phone that wasn't quite ready yet.

    If you'll remember Palm promised the Pre in the first half of the year. I agree they rushed it to make that date. People should take the Blizzard approach. Release a product when it's ready, not when you think it'll be ready. I know that upsets folks, but putting out a poor quality item pisses them off more. Every time.
