Re: HTC makes lots of models

VZW has supply issues with Incredible due to screen supply issues. So if Sprint is at fault for not planning this, VZW is at fault as well for their shortage.

I do agree that Sprint should have forseen this but HTC is the one causing the issue likely due to number of phone models spreading them thin.

Sprint needs multiple 4G phones ASAP and not depend on one supplier to grow 4G.

HTC is the most popular manufacture right now for smart phones. They had a similar shortage problem with the HD2, but soon fixed it.
They haven't made a single phone that hasn't sold well. So maybe they need to figure out a way to keep up with the demand.

And Sprint is parterning up with Samsung for the next 4G phone. It's going to be for all major carriers. Sprint version will be called Epic, while the official name is Samsung galaxy.

I agree with the poster above. Samsung is unable to provide HTC with the AMOLED screens. Maybe it's part of their plan for the galaxy.

Edit: LG also makes them but it is unable to meet the demand because of shortage on their end.
