Palm Pre Launching this Weekend; Queues Form Up Because of Short Supply…
Well, it’s pretty early to say that queues are forming, but a guy is certainly the first to be part of this weekend’s line of folks waiting to get the Pre. This dude is camping in front of the Sprint store, in order to be sure that he gets the first webOS smartphone and he’s not alone, since more people have started joining in.
OK, so shortages are a strategic move to increase demand and reach an iPhone-like hysteria, but isn’t this too much? Why cut the stocks so short? Is it really a problem regarding suppliers?
