White HTC EVO 3D to Be Landing at RadioShack

Back in the old days, when the original HTC EVO 4G released for Sprint, Best Buy released a surprise in the form of a white variant of the venerable titan. The color did well, especially when it was released at other Sprint dealers, and it offered an alternative to the arguably masculine dark grey and black. Now it seems as though RadioShack is looking to emulate big blue, as they’ve announced a white version of the new HTC EVO 3D. Set to be released next month (September for those not keeping track), RadioShack’s white EVO 3D goes a step beyond the white EVO 4G in that the entire body is white, as opposed to merely the rear housing and battery door. The black bezel around the screen is still black, however.  There’s no word as to how long it will remain exclusive to the Shack and no mention of price (expect the same $200, I would imagine), but these details tend to get ironed out as launch day approaches. So who’s looking to get one of these? Let us know in the comments and feel free to jump in after the break to see a larger image.

White Nexus S Shows Up In The Wild….Again

Back on the 25th we noted that a white Nexus S device has surfaced and made its way to Germany, as reported by BestBoyz.  Today we bring you more news of the device rearing its pretty little off white shell, thanks to TNW Mobile.  I’ve gotta say, I like the black front accompanied by the white backing, it sure makes for wonderful eye candy, even though for some reason, white devices rarely make it to market.  According to the article by TNW, a credible source revealed that the device was headed to Vodafone.  No release date has been revealed yet, but with any luck, we could see the smartphone in the hands of consumers very soon.  Give us your thoughts in the comments below.  Does a white Nexus S appeal to you?

White Samsung Nexus S gets outted in Germany

German blog site BestBoyz looks to have a  few snapshots of the Samsung Nexus S in a pristine white shell.  Ok, it might not be full on white, but I’m sure you’d still fool those Apple fan boys when you hold up that curved glass screen as you chit chat with your bff Stacey.  The source also states that these will be shipping with Super AMOLED screens, and not the Super Clear LCD displays rumored before.

While it might not be the completely albino Android you were looking for, it’s still nice to have options.  With all these removable battery covers I’m surprised we don’t see more colors from 3rd-party manufacturers.

thanks to our tipster!
