A market analyst says Sprint has probably sold 150,000 Palm Pre‘s since this smartphone debuted early this month. But that’s just a drop in the bucket for analyst’s predictions for the future.
At this point, sales are still being held down by the Palm’s inability to meet demand. This is something these companies warned would be the case after the launch, and Palm isn’t expected to be able to keep up with demand until late next month.
Analysts are releasing their projections for Palm’s sales, and as often happens there’s a wide range in the predictions.
RBC analyst Mark Abramsky is the one who announced the 150,000 figure, and he says this company will likely sell 4.1 million webOS-based smartphones in the next 12 months, and 6.5 million in the following year.
On the opposite end of the spectrum is Credit Suisse, who predicts Palm’s sales will hit 7.7 million in the next year.
