    Ok, I was bored. So, I decided to find out what the rumored 150,000 Pre's would look like on a per store basis. I am just throwing out the rumored numbers, so don't yell at me. Also, it is rumored that there will be no online or telesales.

    Sprint Store's receiving the Pre #1220---Number of Sprint Stores
    Best Buy will be receiving #4,250 Pre's roughly 4 per store---- 1,000 Stores

    Considering these numbers that leaves 118 Pre's on average per store. I know that this doesn't count how many will be wasted on those damn Parties or the numbers going Radio Shack or Wal Mart. But those numbers are rumored to be less than the Best Buy allotment.

    So, if these numbers are correct or at least in the ball park. There should be plenty of Pre's to go around for ones like us that have been waiting.

    ...and even more if the 150k is false and the 350-375k is true...

    We'll see... maybe the big announcement tomorrow is that EVERYONE WILL GET A PRE ON LAUNCH!!!!

    I'm still in shock that Sprint and Palm would sell an awesome phone like this at a dump like Wal-Mart. I hate that place.

    OT: thanks for doing that, I've been meaning to do something similar but never bothered to.

    Can you clarify something? Is 4250 the number of BBY stores or the number of Pre's alloted the them?

    And the 1220: is that the # of Sprint stores? Where did you find that info?

    Sorry, there are 4,250 Pre's going to the Best Buy Stores. There are 1,220 Sprint Store's in the US. Indirect Dealer's are not getting the Pre and they are rumored/ confirmed to be no telesales or online sales. I also know this number does not include Business Pre-Orders, but heck even if you cut the number in half to 50 per Sprint Store, which is unlikely, that still leaves a decent number for us loyal followers.

    There is a little over 1000 Best Buys and according to reports they are only getting 4250 PRE'S.

    I was told that only about 300 Best Buy's would be getting the Pre at launch. Based on recent info, this looks more accurate.

    Palms and more Palms till the 700p ruined it for me. Blackberry and now the Pre. Sprint customer since 1994! They had 1 tower in town.

    But not all Best Buys will be getting Pres. For example, a lot of Best Buy stores do not carry Sprint on-contract phones at all. Those stores that don't carry ANY Sprint phones will, of course, not be carrying the Pre. This is the case for the store that just opened 5 minutes from my apartment, they don't carry anything Sprint, and so they won't be getting the Pre. So the per store allotment is higher, since not all stores will have it.

    Well, that would be roughly 14 Pre's per Best Buy, lol. I still think the best bet is going to be the Sprint Store---50-100 Sprint Store vs 14 at Best Buy

    I'm really not sure I buy those supposed Best Buy and Radio Shack lists. Not a single BB or RS in Massachusetts appears to be getting the Pre according to them. Either way, I guess I'll be going to a Sprint Store.

    I found an article from 2008 that said Sprint has 1,220 Corporate owned stores. So, I assume it is close to 1,220 give or take.

    Also, all corporate owned stores are Ready Now Stores. So, the 1,220 should receive the Pre.

    My buddy is an indirect dealer and was told that indirect dealers would not receive the Pre until a month after launch. He is even considering camping out to get one for himself.

    The Austin area has about 20 stores. At 50-100 phones per store, that's 1000-2000 phones for a population of about 1.5 mil (whole metro area). That's one phone for every 750-1500 people. That's probably reasonable for day one, given no advertising.

    Hopefully these numbers are fairly in line. If this is the case, if I just get to sprint store when it opens on the 6th, I should have no problem getting one. Well maybe I should arrive a little early in case of a line.
