Re: Economics 101 If anything, the execs don't want a shortage because it limits their bonuses

said by jmn1207:Unless you want a fugly phone, don't order the 3500 mah battery. The battery on the EVO is good. It can easily last you on a good day.
I got my zebra on last Friday by picking up a white/black version from Best Buy. Been looking around for the last couple of weeks for any EVO. I was not able to pre-order from Sprint, Radio Shack, or Best Buy.
I've already placed an order for the 3500 mah tank batter from Seidio, so it will look like an Oreo cookie soon.
Re: HTC makes lots of models
said by xenophon:HTC is a huge company. I'm surprised they are unable to meet the demand for the EVO 4. Maybe Sprint is holding out for the samsung galaxy.
HTC probably makes too many models to be able to supply any in mass quantities. Palm was able to produce about 500K Pres a month and it wasn't exactly a hot phone. EVO is the first phone the media compares to iPhone yet HTC can only product 300K so far. That's not much of a supply. Sprint needs to get the Sammy Epic out ASAP.
I found the key to success but somebody changed the lock.
Re: HTC not as good as Apple at forecasting & supply chain mgt
said by FFH:Uhh what Apple has horrible supply chain dynamics when it comes to their products. They usually run short on everything plus it helps with marketing to make people think they need it since everybody and their mother bought the other ones.
The problem here is that HTC is not as good as Apple at forecasting customer demand and at supply chain mgt.
Re: Parts Shortage....Blah, Blah, Blah....
said by acrowl:The EVO is TFT, not AMOLED. I just don't think they thought this many people would be in line to get them.
The display that is on this handset and the Verizon HTC Droid Incredible use a display called AMOLED. Saumsung is the only one making these in quantity. Guess what, they can't make enough.So they supply shortage is constraining the industry.

Chicago has lots of EVOs, if youre willing to wait a bit I got 2 EVOs from a Fone Zone store (sprint retailer). Put my name on a list via phone call, and got a call within 5 days telling me to come in and pick them up.
Its actually more phone than I need, but I decided to get the latest and greatest this time instead of trying to save a few bucks on last years model.. Plus, Im just tired of arguing with ATT so I wasnt interested in an Iphone that uses an "innovational" aka screwed up, antenna.
I can hardly wait til tomorrow when apple has their press conference on the antenna....ought to be real good fiction, a best seller. Just admit you screwed up, recall them all and make it right instead of blaming the users that they are holding it wrong. Cripes, its a cell phone, how are you supposed to hold it, with chopsticks?
Remember: To err is human. A computer is required to really mess things up!
