Sprint’s HTC EVO 4G launched with great success, but not all of it had a positive effect on everyone. The unprecedented (at least for Sprint’s standards) amount of activations brought their systems to its knees when everyone was trying to get the phone on Friday, and Qik enjoyed a nice rush of traffic, but suffered major server issues as a result.
They aren’t the only ones enjoying the new batch of customers that the EVO 4G brought along wit its launch, though. Big In Japan – the developers behind the award winning ShopSavvy app – is reporting that their downloads have shot through the roof thanks to Sprint and HTC’s new lovechild.
They reportedly got 300,000-600,000 unique downloads from EVO owners over the course of the 3 days following the phone’s arrival. Thankfully, they haven’t reportedly suffered any negative side effects due to the increased traffic. If you’re a new EVO owner and haven’t already checked it out, download ShopSavvy today.
[Update]: That number of downloads we referenced is actually the number of units that the EVO 4G is rumored to have sold, as reported on by CNN’s Seth Weintraub here. We’ll chalk it up to bad wording on Big in Japan’s part.
