Well with the HUGE inventory problems at launch for both the Instinct and the Pre- I don't think this was hard to do. It also helped to have an AWARD winning phone launch 2 months after a major cell trade show, and to do a preorder a few weeks in advance- Niether were done for pre, and I don't believe for Instict either.
I really do hope this phone can hold up to whatever Apple has planned- or this may be the most returned phone in history however. I see a lot of ex iphone users here.

3x EVO sales on Friday compared to weekend sales for Pre so...approx 150k + a some over sat/sun?
edit: hard to interpret...not sure if they mean Palm weekend sales combined and Instinct weekend sales combined (150k) or Palm+Instinct weekend sales (300k)

The Palm Pre had really low inventory. I remember the Best Buy I went to had 8 of them compared to 66 Evo's this Friday. The next Pre shipment didn't come for weeks compared to Evo's being promised today (the 7th). Also, Pre's weren't sold online at Sprint.com for a while.
Not saying that the amount of Evo's sold isn't amazing, but to compare it to the Pre is kind of weak.

What I am trying to say is that this is definately a larger launch than the Pre, and if both were to have had an infinate inventory, I'm sure the Evo would have sold more.

I had a Sprint Rep tell me that there were 20k Evo's available for launch. I ased if that was for our area (Chicago) and she said no, that was for the US as a whole. I don't now what the hell she was talking about inless she meant 20k were available that hadn't been re-ordered or what.
