Sprint's CFO is not a fan of the Palm Pre

Sprint's CFO is not a fan of the Palm Pre
With the disappointing launch that the Palm Pre had on Sprint last year, the carrier's CFO Robert Brust came out today as not being a fan of the Palm Pre. On the other hand, with the EVO 4G selling tremendously well, the company is very pleased with the Android flavored device and its massive 4.3 inch TFT display. "The Pre was for people who really didn't want the iPhone," said the executive of the pin-dropping network,  "But the EVO is a phone that people can get instead of the iPhone. We were in the distance last year and now we're catching up." Interesting words from a man whose firm once ran T.V. ads claiming that the Samsung Instinct was superior to the iPhone. Brust says that the EVO 4G can stop the churn that Sprint experiences each year when its customers migrate to AT&T for the latest iPhone model. The exec says, "Our hope is that we won't lose as many customers this year as we have in the past," and he goes on to mention some of the problems AT&T has been having this year with its network and how they will lose customers upset by the removal of unlimited data plans from the carrier's offerings. Sprint CEO Dan Hesse has said that his company will not give in to pressure from the other carriers to remove unlimited data offerings. Can you hear the cheers from Sprint headquarters? "Give me an E...give me a V...give me an O and a 4G. What have you got?"
