Pre sells out nationwide, best launch ever for Sprint

Sprint was obviously excited by the Palm Pre, and with good reason: this launch weekend ended up as the best ever launch weekend for any Sprint phone, both in terms of first day and first weekend sales. While Sprint has not released any official sales figures, with most analysts estimating sales of anywhere from 50,000 to 100,000. That is well short of the nearly 150,000 iPhones moved during the first weekend it was available for sale, it’s still an impressive accomplishment for Sprint and the financially-strapped Palm. Not a Sprint Store in the land had a Pre in stock at the end of the weekend, and even with the short supply, that’s still a good sign.

Now, if you're still lookng for a Pre yourself, take heart, last we heard each store is getting re-upped with Pre phones on a regular (and in some cases daily) basis.  Wouldn't hurt to bring some coffee and donuts to your local corporate Sprint store and make some friends is what we're saying.
