Sprint overstated HTC EVO 4G sales On Monday, Sprint announced that the HTC EVO 4G had broken the carrier's launch day sales record, even selling "three times" as many units as the Palm Pre and Samsung Instinct did combined on their respective first days.
Yesterday, calls to over 20 retailers showed that the phone is sold out, practically everywhere.

This morning, however, Sprint has noted that they overstated June 4th launch day sales, by accident.

Correcting the original statement, the U.S. third biggest carrier said HTC EVO 4G sales at launch were "in line" with that of the Pre and Instinct, combined.

Says Sprint: "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."
