Sprint overestimates HTC EVO 4G sales and updates its press release

Sprint overestimates HTC EVO 4G sales and updates its press release
When you see stores selling out of the highly sought out HTC EVO 4G, one would have to assume that the launch could be deemed as a success – especially for the Samsung Instinct and Palm Pre which did admirably for Sprint. Now that launch day has passed, there is little doubt in the minds of people that the HTC EVO 4G is clearly the best smartphone to even grace Sprint. And that's exactly how Sprint said it a few days ago as it was reported that “the total number of HTC EVO 4G devices sold on launch day was three times the number of Samsung Instinct and Palm Pre devices sold over their first three days on the market combined.” Sure it's sold out in pretty much all sales channels for right now – which does add to the fact that it's very well be on its way to a superstardom-like status. However, Sprint admitted in their updated press release that their initial estimations were wrong and note that launch days sales of the handset were actually “six times greater than launch day sales of Samsung Instinct and nearly twice the launch day sales for Palm Pre.” They went further on to say that “the total number of HTC EVO 4G devices sold on launch day was in line with the number of Samsung Instinct and Palm Pre devices sold over their first three days on the market combined.” Aside from the rumored 200,000 units sold, so far there are no official or exact figures on the total amount of units sold – either way, it looks like the HTC EVO 4G is pure gold for Sprint.
