On Monday I reported on Sprint's revealing in a press release that the EVO 4G "shattered their previous record for the largest number of a single device sold on a launch day, with three times more than the number of Samsung Moment and Palm Pre devices over their first three day combined." As it turns out, the numbers released were a big mistake.
Apparently, Sprint made a mistake in writing 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."
They contend that what actually happened is "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."
Phandroid tunes in to my thoughts when they mention that "This story ends by everyone laughing it off, and then getting restless from Sprint’s caution in just releasing the official sales numbers to the public."
AndroidCentral and BoyGeniusReport affirmed their belief in how well the device will sell. BoyGeniusReport said that thanks to "the momentum the 4G handset has, we’re sure it will hit that 300,000 figure in no time at all." What's more, Engadget notes that those figures should get "even better if Sprint can restock shelves."
