Sprint: We Tripled EVO 4G Sales by Accident

The HTC EVO 4G is currently in short supply at retail stores around the country, however, the device isn't selling as well as its carrier initially made out. Sprint has admitted that though it originally reported the number of EVO 4Gs sold on launch day was three times the number of Samsung Instincts and Palm Pres sold in their first three days combined, they made a mistake in the calculations.

"We inadvertently erred in the comparison," Sprint said. "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."

That's still pretty damn impressive though it's not clear how Sprint made the mistake in the first place. Reports now say the EVO 4G is nearly completely sold out everywhere so if you want one, you'll have to get a move on.
