I’m sure Dan Hesse (CEO of Sprint Nextel) is celebrating tonight. Sprint’s had their share of financial difficulties over the last few years, and after the recent the troubles that Palm has had, they’ve needed a new flagship phone to replace the aging Pre and it seems the EVO 4G might just be that phone.

Various blogs and first hand accounts from customers have mentioned that Sprint’s activation system has been buckling under the weight of all of the eager, soon-to-be Android owners trying to activate their phones.

This is similar to what we’ve seen in the past with ATT and iPhone activations…in fact, I can’t recall the last time this happened with anything that wasn’t an iPhone so this is certainly promising news.
