On Monday we told you that Sprint had announced that the first day sales of the new HTC EVO 3G Android smartphone were three times that of the Palm Pre and the Samsung Instinct, Sprint also said they had broken first day sales records for any smartphone.
Now it seems that Sprint may have overestimated the sales figures they announced, and it seems they didn’t sell three times the Palm Pre, but the number was in line with that of the Palm Pre and Samsung Instinct.
This release was distributed on June 7, 2010. It was updated on June 8, 2010. June 4, 2010 sales of HTC EVO 4G marked the largest quantity of a single phone sold in one day ever for Sprint – the record was previously held by both Samsung Instinct and Palm Pr. Launch day sales of HTC EVO 4G were six times greater than launch day sales of Samsung Instinct and nearly twice the launch day sales for Palm Pre. We continue to see sales of EVO 4G outpace sales of Samsung Instinct and Palm Pre.
We originally reported that the total number of HTC EVO 4G devices sold on launch day was three times the number of Samsung Instinct and Palm Pre devices sold over their first three days on the market combined. We inadvertently erred in the comparison. The total number of HTC EVO 4G devices sold on launch day was in line with the number of Samsung Instinct and Palm Pre devices sold over their first three days on the market combined.
It looks like Sprint may have sold around 150,000 HTC Evo 4G’s since launch, as opposed to the 300,000 previously thought which is still impressive, although they may have trouble keeping sales up as they are currently out of stock.
