Pre Inventory Levels Are Lower Than Low in My Area

palm-preI just spent the last 45 minutes calling Radio Shack, Best Buy and Sprint stores in my vicinity. It’s not looking good for me, but perhaps in your locale you’ll have better luck. After speaking with a dozen different places, I strongly suspect I won’t have a Palm Pre (s PALM) after all tomorrow. I’m getting comments like:

“We have one unit now but might get more on the truck tonight.” – Best Buy
“We’re not sure we’re going to have any until August.” – Radio Shack
“We should have 8 or 9 units in stock, but you’re about the 50th person to call us.” – Sprint

If you had any doubts on those limited inventory reports from the past few weeks, I recommend making some calls today. I live in the sticks, so maybe you’ll have more promising results.

At this point, I think it’s highly unlikely I’ll have one on launch day. Barb isn’t going to want to run around or wait in an early line and I can’t say that I blame her. I’ll live. :) I suspect that by the end of the weekend (if not end of day tomorrow) there won’t be a Pre to be had until the next shipment arrives, but that’s pure speculation on my part.
