It’s official: the Palm Pre, released Saturday has broken the sales record of all Sprint’s other cell phones. The Palm Pre has said to have sold the outrageous amount of “somewhere between 50,000 and 100,000″ units within the first two days of it’s release. Tim Donahue, Sprint’s VP of business marketing announced:
“We experienced our best one day of sales and single weekend sales for any phone we’ve launched in our history, We sold out of the device over the weekend in most of our store locations. And it happened at a much faster rate than we had planned on. “
A J.P. Morgan report estimated that more than 50,000 phones were sold in the first two days the phone was available. The Wall Street Journal cited analysts who said that between 50,000 and 100,000 Pres had been sold. Now Sprint and Palm must wait to see if the momentum will continue. Donahue said the company plans to replenish inventory at retail stores as quickly as Palm can get the devices shipped.
