    Default Does anyone have EVO's in stock...anywhere?

    I was reluctant to get an EVO and give up my Pre. I finally decided to try to have both.

    So starting Friday morning (launch day), I started calling every Sprint, Radio Shack, and Best Buy in my suburbs.

    There was not one EVO to be found anywhere.

    The manager at the local Best Buy said that they had 60 EVO's on-hand to fulfill pre-orders on Friday. All were gone Friday. They got in about 30 more and still have 30 pre-orders to fill before they can get to the 50 rain checks. The inventory at other stores was about the same units sold and no Best Buy has any in stock and they are sold out online. She said that she could have sold another 50 a day if she had them in stock and that this is a far bigger demand than any iPhone.

    1,100 Best Buys x 80 each plus online sales is 100,000 EVO's first week?

    Radio Shack is completely sold out in all stores. A manager told me that they all got about 20-30 initially and about 10 more this week.

    6,000 Radio Shacks x 30 = 180,000 EVO's first week?

    The Corporate Sprint stores all seem to have gotten about 30-50 initially and 10 in reorders. The Sprint dealer stores got 20 + 10.

    22,000 Sprint Stores x 35 + 800 number + online = 800,000 first week?

    So a million EVO's first week?

    Every store is out and seems to have a wait list of 10 - 40 right now.

    Time to bite the bullet and call the Sprint 800 number?

    Try Wal-Mart... Got mine there... It all depends on if your local Wally World sells Sprint phones.

    Default So close, yet so far

    I found one in a Walmart, actually held it in my hand but couldn't buy it.

    Earlier that day I called sprint and asked them to move my upgrade date up 3 weeks over chat. The rep said they could so off to Walmart I went.

    Got all the way to the end of the process when the walmart clerk couldn't get my full upgrade processed. She called sprint and now they tell me I have to wait until the 19th of June to get the full upgrade. According to sprint they could only move it up about two weeks to June 19th.

    Needless to say I was bummed and kind of annoyed with sprint for telling me one thing than actually doing another. Oh well, I guess I can wait 8 more days.

    Was just up at the sprint store buying a case and the clerk said they were sold out nationwide. That doesn't necessarily mean you wont find one, but I'd imagine its going to be pretty tough.

    You can order on radioshack.com now, but it says web orders ship in 1 to 2 weeks.

    Never would have thought of Sam's! My local WalMart has them. I was kind of shocked. I even took a pic with my EVO since I didn't believe my eyes

    I have now called every Best Buy, Radio Shack, WalMart and Sprint store in my area.

    I think I have called 35 stores.

    Everyone on earth is sold out of EVO's.

    So if you are one of the lucky ones who has an EVO, enjoy!

    The fact is that Android is hot hot HOT!!!!

    Android Phones Selling Faster Than They Can Be Built

    Motorola CEO Sanjay Jha revealed to Reuters today that the company’s Android-powered mobile devices are selling faster than they can be manufactured. Verizon has had similar experiences with the Droid Incredible from HTC, an Android phone whose biggest problem has been that demand outstrips current supply.

    More Motorola devices, including several with front-facing cameras for video conferencing, are slated for release later this year. Sprint’s EVO, another video conferencing-capable Android (Android) handset, has been on sale for just a few days and is already sold out and breaking Sprint sales records, too.

    Additionally LG, a company that had previously committed to releasing Windows Mobile handsets, has stated it will release 20 Android handsets this year alone.


    I have some friends who are hardcore Apple fanboys who refuse to believe that Android is laying the hurt on iPhone. One said that the reason market share slipped to third was because people were waiting for iPhone 4 and that on June 24th, Apple will be back on top. I almost feel sorry for him. Current iPhone users who are still under its spell will just trade up to the current model, but I don't see as many (if any) people looking at the broad array of Android phones on different carriers and then deciding to shackle themselves to the one phone from one company with one app store on one carrier.

    I'm in the same boat as you - was hesitant to give up the Pre, didn't think the Evo would be this sold out. What frustrates me the most is that every Sprint store or Radioshack in my area of Brooklyn seems to have employees with a fifth grade reading/writing level, and an all around lack of politeness. I'm reaching my limit on how many "huhhh?"s I can listen to from these people, instead of "excuse me?"s. Off topic, but having been calling almost as many stores as you, it's become a serious peeve of mine!

    I'm on a waiting list at the nearest Sprint store, but I have no idea where on the list I am. Anyone know if they get shipments in on Saturdays?

    I'm really surprised Sprint only had 150K available for launch. Sprint investors must be pissed they only ordered that many. Maybe HTC had manufacturing constraints but 150K seems low. Palm Pre was able to manufacture 15K a day at peak, I'd think HTC could do more than that.

    If Sprint would have ordered 500K for day 1, the would have sold them in a couple months if it ended only being only somewhat popular. Big mistake.

    Not much better here in the Bronx when it comes down to how they are on the phone. Ive always had better results with my 3rd party Sprint store that is much more helpful and usually go out of their way to make sure your satisfied. The only problem is they said they wont get their 1st shipment until the 16th and Im sure they will be sold out within a hour or so.

    The original Sprint store I was waitlisted at still doesn't have any in stock one week after launch. I wound up calling three or four places on Tuesday before finding one that had received a couple of them, and driving out there with a quickness to get mine.

    I don't know if Sprint can afford these shortages with the next iPhone right around the corner.
