Palm Pre Shortage Seems More Likely

No one is saying exactly how many Palm Pres will be available when they go on sale June 6, but many analysts are predicting a shortage. So did Sprint CEO Dan Hesse earlier this week.

It’s estimated there will be fewer than 400,000 units available. Consider the fact they’ll be on sale at big box retailers like Wal-mart, Radio Shack and Best Buy – in addition to Sprint stores – and there may not be enough to go around, at least initially (if you believe the hype). And speaking of hype, Bloomberg even suggested in a report last month that Palm and Sprint were going to make too few on purpose, just to get more buzz.

With an announcement about a new iPhone likely coming on June 8, and new BlackBerry offerings available as well, it will be interesting to see if as many people line up for a Pre as some think.
