In all fairness to the Evo (which is a GREAT device), you shouldn't dangle the Evo in front of the customers when it's been on backorder for so long, hence the move down. The Epic is more of a tease to customers (who aren't like us and see it as a cruel thing :P) so it's to get the GENERAL population buzzing.

I have some concerns over that article, its a nice explaination but the screen shortages have been for regular amoled, not the super amoled which is unique to samsung phones. Being the manuf of the screen and the phone itself would lead me to believe that Samsung could handle the supply line. Also seeing as that there are no shortages of the AT&T/T-Mobile versions I have to think there is something more going on. Perhaps Sprint is just betting on more customers and really does not want to have another Evo situation on their hands. Really, I think there's something else going on as to why there have been no dates from Sprint officially, maybe waiting on a bug fix or 2.2 perhaps?

With that said though I am more interested in that a spokesman has said that more information will be revealed at the end of the week.
This could just be another big pile of nonsense but the fact that he said that in an interview to a popular magazine makes me more hopeful.
Usually in my experiences, credible magazines dont post just anything without some sort of validity behind it (Unlike many of these online blogs).
So my fingers are crossed for some sort of good news "coming soon".

I'm also concerned that Sprint is choosing not to provide a direct alternative to the Droid 2 and Blackberry Torch until who-knows-when.
If they don't launch, they need to at least re-assure potential buyers that they shouldn't go with the alternatives for their hard-keyboard desires.
