Sprint bragged about selling 50,000 Pre's its first weekend.

Apple sold 1,000,000 iPhones the first weekend of the 3GS

Sprint will continue to hemmorage users.

Apples and oranges. [pun intended]
Palm Pre is all new.
Apple is on its 3rd generation.
The more appropriate comparison would be to the 1st generation iPhone.
And Palm is much smaller than Apple.

>Sprint will continue to hemmorage users.


Probably, but that has little to do with the Pre, mostly a result of
poor management, including the acquisition of Nextel and the WiMAX
adventure. One phone, no matter how cool, can't make up for that.

If the iPhone is really so impressive,
why do fans keep making excuses for it?

Actually it sounds like the number was more like 70,000.

How many in the US? After all, you're comparing the number to the US
release of another product.

And how many of that million were new iPhone users?
