Sprint has just gotten their first positive feedback on the HTC Evo, in the form of a nearly collapsed activation system. TFTS reports that Sprint's internal activation systems are undergoing iPhone-esque strain. Take this as first confirmation that the HTC Evo is selling like hotcakes.

It took nearly two hours for my phone to activate, and I can only imagine the waits must be even longer for folks who showed up later in the day. I can report that, in Dallas at least, the 4G network seems to be undergoing substantial strain. There have been some long, wonky periods of lag that may be connected to Sprint's under-prepared servers.
