    I'd hever heard of them, but apparently they're a Sprint affliliate that also sells the Pre. This is from their conference call today:

    Regarding Smartphones, these devices made up approximately 22% of our total device activation mix during the second quarter, up from 14% in the year ago quarter. ARPU for smart devices continues to remain strong and is currently in the mid $70 range. We continue to see strong demand for the BlackBerry Curve, the Samsung Instinct, and Palm Pre devices in our markets.

    We are currently experiencing healthy demand for the Palm Pre, which was launched on June 6, and overall, customer interest remains high. Given this, we are seeking greater quantities of the Palm Pre to satisfy the ongoing demand.

    Just go to their website. They are a small independent wireless reseller business that accounts for just over 1% of Sprint's customer base (~700,000 subscribers). One difference between iPCS and Sprint is iPCS had a small net gain in subscribers this last year although they still suffer from high churn rates Sprint experiences perennially.

    Not a really good indicator of how Pre sales are going - is this where Deutsche Bank got their figures from?
