We are an indirect Sprint dealer in a large city in the Midwest. Sprint is a small part of what we do, but we sell/activate about 500 new units a year. Our allotment is "0" and we have not been able to sell even one unit. The latest email from Sprint (8/4/10) is below:
EVO Inventory Update
Customer demand for the HTC EVO 4G continue to be at unprecedented levels and we continue to expect challenges for all channels given the inventory constraints. The issue is unrelated to any Sprint actions, unfortunately HTC cannot produce enough to meet the demand and this is compounded by a global parts shortage which is impacting all carriers. We will continue to keep you updated on the inventory status.
8/8/10 White EVO Launch Delayed For Dealers
Due to unprecedented customer demand for the HTC EVO, the launch of the white EVO is delayed until further notice. We are working hard to launch the white EVO and will update you when the new launch date is available.
In other words, don’t hold your breath. We have several employee’s, including me, that are waiting and have been told it may be several more months if we want to get it through the discount channels. It is frustrating to sit through Sprint’s mandatory online service training classes and not have an EVO to use!
