Sprint CFO: Pre didn't work out like we hopedAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
While the Palm Pre most likely brought several new customers to Sprint during their exclusivity period of the device, it's clear that neither the Pre nor the Pixi did wonders for Palm and Sprint. Sprint's CFO Robert Brust recently echoed that sentiment to investors when he said, "The Pre didn't work out as well as we hoped." Brust went on to blame Palm and its supply issues for the lackluster performance and said that Sprint has learned a lot since the launch of the original Pre. Hopefully Sprint is more prepared for the launch of the EVO 4G in a few weeks which, judging by Internet buzz, should do extremely well for the No. 3 wireless carrier. When asked about his concerns about the iPhone, Brust simply said, "We'd love to have it."
