Palm Pre Launch Breaks Sprint Sales Record
Sprint has issued a new press release this afternoon that says the Palm Pre broke Sprints own record for a new phone debut. Despite the numerous unconfirmed analyst reports of over 50,000 sold, Sprint has not released any actual sales numbers. Rather they state:
By late Sunday, Palm Pre had broken previous sales records (first day and first weekend) for a Sprint device.
The release also confirms that many Sprint locations have sold out of their initial launch inventory. Sprint says they are "getting the device in to its retail locations as fast as Palm can make them."
"Sprint is a very different company than it was 12 months ago," said Dan Hesse, president and chief executive officer. "Palm Pre is the coming out party for the new Sprint. It is the perfect device that highlights all of the positive changes in our company, including our revolutionary Ready Now retail store experience, greatly improved customer care, unmatched value pricing plans and America's most dependable 3G network."
