Will the EVO be available @ Sprint on Friday?
I've heard a lot about BestBuy and Radio Shack and their stock, but I haven't seen a peep about Sprints actual stores and if they will have the EVO in on Friday.
I know Sprint has the $100 MIR, so that is a detractor for most, but I really couldn't care less.
Do you guys know anything about this?

The question is how many will they have. All 3 of the stores I spoke to in Miami are expecting to sell out by 11 am. One advised to be there no later than 7 am (an hr before the early opening) if I wanted one.
I find it hard to believe that they are going to run out but they seem to be claiming they will. I am going to take my chances- I have 8 sprint stores within 20 miles of where I live. Twice as many best buys and as many radio shacks. I cant imagine not being able to get one but I do have a contingency plan for Saturday delivery if neccessary.

I'm sorry if it seemed like a useless question. It was an honest question I was having, considering I'm looking to take at least the morning off work to go sit in line, I really was curious as to what some more knowledgeable blokes such as yourself knew.

The Palm Pre sold out in my area when it was launched last year. I waited in a line 25 people long for the Sprint store to open. This is a much hotter phone with a greater mass appeal. The Best Buy near my has pre-orders for all 65 phones they are getting and had started a pre-order waiting list.
If you want the phone on the 4th, I would be in line early at a Sprint store. If you can wait a couple of days, they will most likely get more phone shipments every day. I'm just getting mine shipped, so I will have to wait till Monday.

It's a known fact (from the launch of the Intrepid, among others) that Sprint corporate stores get more devices than their retail partners (BB, RS, non-corporate Sprint stores), regardless of how many pre-orders these retail partners have.
I am willing to bet all the money in my pocket (got paid today, so keep that in mind ) that most metropolitan area Sprint corporate stores will have enough EVOs to last through the day, though it may be running short by the end of the day.

There are many different key facts the differ from last years Pre-Disaster and the most obvious one is the EVO pre-orders ... they are eveywhere ... not just at BB, Sprint and RS but every online retailer including Walmart ... That will thin out the lines a great deal ... If you go to a Sprint Corp store you that opens at 8am and your in line by 6:45 ... You are good to go ... Don't underestimate the power of the EVO ... The early risers are sure to get one ... Suck it up and wait for it ... You meet alot of interesting people who just like you want the EVO just as bad as you ... And I have seen some very hot sexy geekettes in these lines ... HAPPY EVO-EVE
