Rumors of shortages of the Palm Pre start

Written by David Stellmack

Looks like they will not have that many at launch


It seems that even the Sprint CEO thinks that the Palm Pre is going to be in short supply at launch. While stores will have some inventory, it seems that at least some of that inventory will be sold off to special customers and those that are being invited to the Palm Pre launch party that will start June 5th at 6 P.M. local time at many Sprint stores. Not every Sprint store will be hosting a launch party, from what we hear.

In addition to Sprint looking short on the Pre, we can tell you that Best Buy is only expected to get 4 units on launch day and Radio Shack locations will be lucky if they get 2 each for launch. This does seem to add up to good possibility of shortages if the Pre flies off the shelves as everyone expects.

I guess we would not be going out on a limb to state that shortages of the Pre are likely. We have to wonder if Palm is going to be able to get enough Pre units built fast enough to keep up with the demand. To take advantage of their launch ahead of the iPhone they need to be able to get units into customers’ hands and it looks like that is going to be a problem.
