    "NEW YORK (Reuters) - Sprint Nextel Corp (S.N) expects shortages of Palm Inc's (PALM.O) high-profile Pre smartphone for a while but has not felt any impact from the new iPhone so far, Sprint's chief financial officer said on Tuesday.
    Sprint -- the exclusive U.S. provider of Pre -- sees Pre, which sold out during its launch weekend at the beginning of June, as a key to stemming its subscriber losses. But some analysts have worried that tight supply would hurt sales.

    "We still have a backlog of subscribers but it's not unmanageable and we get shipments every week," said Sprint CFO Bob Brust during a Webcast of an investor conference, adding that the shipments are increasing every week.

    "We'll be short for a while but we're catching up," said Brust, who sees the phone attracting new customers as well as existing Sprint customers, potentially reducing its subscriber cancellation rate."

    Hey, Manny! I think the rules said I need to have 15 posts before I can link. Dang, there are a lot of seemingly inane rules here. However, given the number of posters and posts, perhaps that has become necessary for quality control and spam issues.
