Sprint Says Pre Didn’t Work Out Well

Sprint and Palm have had a long relationship, part of the reason they were the exclusive carrier for the Palm Pre. Sprint’s CFO Robert Brust reflected on the Palm Pre when addressing investors.


“The Pre didn’t work out as well as we hoped,” he said.

Brust claimed Palm’s was partly to blame due to supply issues. If memory serves correct, there were no great shortages of the Palm Pre at launch, so this comes a bit out of left field. Brust believes the company has learned plenty since the Pre launch and hopes to reverse course with the HTC EVO 4G.
