    I know there is a thread or post somewhere in here that has a poll asking how many EVOs will be sold, but this article actually is the first to estimate how many.

    I just told my iPhone work mate about the 1.2 pre-ordered phones and he said "No way!". I just laughed. Thanks for the link!

    This is a new article, please don't bury it.

    I think the iPhone 3G sold less than this at launch. I would say this is a big deal for Sprint.

    That is an incredibly high number. It took the iPhone 3GS 3 days to sell 1 million. To my knowledge, you couldn't pre-order an iPhone though, so due to the fact that this encompasses all pre-orders for the Evo (and the phone isn't on an incredibly shitty network! Just the customer service is shitty :)), I guess it is possible?

    It looks to me like they are grouping all who preregistered on the sprint site as well as all the preorders into one number. I don't believe it will be that many, but I know it will be more than most thought.

    This was taken from StreetInsider. 1.2 Million.


    We believe online preregistrations and preorders (for the EVO 4G) from indirect channel partners are the highest on record (we estimate close to 1.2 million by launch date)..

    I'm not in retail, but I would say any device that sells 1.2 preorders is pretty damn good. Even compared to Apple ~ and I'm a avid Mac lover and iPhone subscriber (until tmrw).

    If BB & RS etc sell it at the discount price of $199 - I wonder how much they get out of the deal? I know they probably make their bread off of the accessories, but they have to make something off of the handsets yes??

    Anyone know?

    There we NO pre-orders on Sprint. Only third party sellers took pre-orders. Sprint will sell Friday in stores and in Telesales. You could, however, sign up for information to be notified when the EVO was available. Those hit today (well, it hit my email today!). Does "pre-registered" mean the same as "tell me when it's available"?

    i for one ... did not expect this high of a number!!!!
    I think it is a little exaggerated. We will see.

    if true.. did sprint plan for this? will there be enough phones tomorrow and through the weekend? If not there will be a back slash .. pushing some to the new iphone.

    I would probebly wait intill Monday for final sales tally from the weekend, kinda like the movies top 10. They may have 1.2 million in Pre-Orders but whether they sell that much is other story. Let hope it is. I wont mind seeing over 1 million in sales.

    Sold, ever? Probably close to 750k. Sold over the weekend, 250k max.

    Just a guess but an educated one.

    i dont think so...

    I hear RS sold 200K.. they are supposedly also getting a few extra for on had to sell too.

    I am guessing that BB sold as many if not more.

    then you have Sam's club and any other third party vendors.
    Then there some that will only buy directly from sprint

    my guess.. over the weekend... 600-800k
