Pre Sales Levelling off?

Rédigé par Annie Latham le Mercredi 15 Juillet 2009

It appears that you should no longer have problems getting a Palm pre at Sprint Retail locations.  An analyst at JNK Securities ran a survey at 50 Sprint stores and concludes that

It has been clear for the last few weeks that Sprint is now meeting the current demand and that the ’sold out’ scenarios common just after launch have ended - if they do occur (as they did this week), they are a temporary scenario while the store waits that day for a new shipment. Finding a Palm Pre at a Sprint store should not be difficult at the current time.

We found the story at TechCrunch, who extrapolated from the numbers that Sprint is selling between 20,000 and 30,000 units a week.  As forum member SharonW points out, however, TechCrunch's numbers seem to be based on there being about 1,000 Sprint retail locations, when the actual number is likely higher (Sprint says 1200, SharonW estimates 1600).  So 20 to 30 thousand is likely a lowball figure.

Until Palm actually deigns to release some actual numbers on Pre sales, we are left with the best estimates of analysts for sales numbers.  In the meantime, the survey does seem to imply that retail inventory is starting to fill out -- hopefully that means telesales and websales will start happening soon.

Anybody out there still in the hunt for a Palm Pre?
