Made available to the public last Friday, June 4, the HTC Evo 4G Android phone has proven itself to be a worthy investment for Sprint as it has just broke the US carrier’s record for most units sold on launch day which previously belonged to the Palm Pre. They didn’t divulge any specific sales figures, but they did, however, reveal that there are “temporary shortages of the device at some of the 22,000 sales locations across the Unites States, including Sprint retail stores, national retail partners including RadioShack, Best Buy and Walmart, and indirect dealers.” They assure the public though that they’re working closely with HTC to address this issue and improve their current inventory to meet the high demand for the HTC Evo 4G.
The entire press release can be found here. The question is, with thousands of happy campers now owning an HTC Evo 4G, is Sprint’s WiMAX network ready to support the load? We certainly hope so for Sprint’s sake, but if not, we’ll probably hear about it in the next couple of weeks or so.
