Sprint CFO expects Pre shortages; no change with iPhone release
Now in the midst of the ongoing battle between rivals, Sprint's CFO expects shortages in steady Pre units while the iPhone 3G S release is not a concern. The summer is here and two of the most hyped phones are dueling it out to see who will reign supreme after the dust has settled. In the words of Sprint CFO, Bob Brust, “We still have a backlog of subscribers but it's not unmanageable and we get shipments every week.” Further reassurance were made during a webcast for an investor conference that shipments are increasing every week to catch up with the demand of their premier smart phone. Although Apple reported a head turning 1 million units sold during their first weekend versus the Pre's fifty thousand, Brust states that Sprint is not hurt at all. Time will tell the true story once quarterly earnings are released by the two carriers.
