Unfortunately we got a little excited by the news that Sprint put out... specifically that they had sold 3 times as many HTC EVO's as the Palm Pre and Samsung Instinct devices in the first 3 days of sales.

They've gone on to correct those numbers to "equal" which puts the sales figures at about 150,000 units for that three day period.

That's still a ton of phones in a three day period, especially if you consider the fact that they ended up selling out and had activation problems - that number could well have been higher.
