Break Out the SMores: Palm Pre Campouts Likely

And you thought the Palm Pre pre-hype was big. Now comes Sprint CEO Dan Hesse claiming there will be a shortage of Pres when they first go on sale June 6.

Hesse made the statement to a media and telecom conference on Tuesday. He told the group that there won’t be a lot of advertising initially because there won’t be enough phones to go around. So is this true, or simply a way to keep the hype going for the next couple of weeks?

An announcement about an upgrade to the iPhone is expected just two days after the launch of the Pre. Will Palm come out of hibernation and be a significant competitor with the Pre?

If the excitement in the real world turns out to be as fervent as it is online, you might want to buy your marshmallows, graham crackers and chocolate early, because campouts outside Sprint stores are likely the night of June 5.
