White HTC EVO 4G Coming Exclusively To Best Buy July 11th, Sprint Stores August 8th - Preorders Open Now
Last Updated: July 11th, 2010

This was unexpected - Best Buy is offering exclusive preorders on a white version of the HTC EVO 4G, scheduled to arrive in Best Buy stores on July 11th. The white version is going to have the same specs and price of $199 on a 2-year contract. As usual, a $50 deposit in the form of a Best Buy gift card is required.

I am not sure personally that I would like the white version over the black one, but I guess some people expressed desire for one.

How about you guys? Which color do you prefer?

    Best Buy has the white EVOs now. I bought one today. Only because the black one wasn't available. The White one has a smooth back, not a rubbery one like the black model, therefore, it'll slide off things easier.
