    With the recently threatened White version of the EVO available for pre order...has anyone seen or have pics of the White yet?

    The BB flyer has one lousy obscured pic of half the phone, and my interweb searchisez haven't turned up anything more substantial.

    Thanks in advance

    So they just made the back plate white ... Thats simple ... Hell That would mean it could be an easy $5 dollar swap to make 10-15 different back plate covers and custom ones too ... I think that would be somewhat cool.

    A clear back plate would be cool as well.

    Yea, when I saw the pics of the BBY ad I thought to myself "That can't be right- just the backplate is white? What about the front!"

    Welp, sure enough. Just silly. Also, add me to the people who want a clear (or even red!) back.

    You could take the back off and Krylon it any color you want. A nice feminine pink for the wife, and bright red with a Ferrari sticker for me.

    It shows what the white phone looks like.

    I was fearing that this would be the situation.

    Thanks for the fring video link...in the video I can't quite tell if that's the white version of the phone, or just a black EVO with a white case.

    Waiting for more details...but not optimistic.

    No kidding. I think it would look stupid if the face was still black.

    It looks like it's glossy white. That's a shame. I was hoping for a flat white. I've seen too many white Iphones with the glossy white plastic all scratched up to be ok with a glossy white phone. I'll probably case it anyway, but I was thinking of the white one simply because it'll probably already have the changes implemented in manufacturing for the glass separation issue. Even with a case I don't want a phone that shows scratches so easy.

    How about we just take the battery cover off, and paint it ourselves with glossy white paint? LOL!

    To me this picture looks like its more than just the battery door thats white. It looks like the frame surrounding the battery door on the back is white also. So I think the whole phone will be white, they just aren't showing the full picture of it.

    you can see the buttons are still black and from the bbm photocopy it looks like the front is black. it might be the cover and back half is white but the front half from the buttons on is black?
    i guess it would look weird even if the entire thing is white because the printing under the glass would still be black on the front?

    the demo is being done by a white evo if you pay attention to the video you will notice that hence why it was posted and referred to in the post above mine.

    actually if you look at the picture the volume buttons are black so it looks like the back door and back trim are white but then the front and buttons are all black which i think is ugly if they would have made the whole thing both from and back white it might have been cool

    I was pretty excited to hear that htc would be offering a white evo. But after seeing that fring video, not so much. Its really dumb just to have the back side white and not the whole thing.

    I agree. The white evo was going to be my over the edge reason to switch from my year old palm pre, but I think the black front white back is a horrible design. No preordering it sight unseen for me that's for sure.

    I guess we'll see it in July when it actually comes out.
