The white iPhone 4 is finally here on AT&T and Verizon! But if you're not completely sold on the fair colored version, there's a few ways to get your white iPhone fix without paying full price (if you just got the black model you won't be getting any discounts), or switching from a BlackBerry or Android device you already know and love. Check out your options here!
If I had a nickel for every time I heard about the Android 2.2 update coming to another handset "soon" . . . well, I wouldn't be rich, but I'd definitely have an extra few bucks in my pocket. Thankfully, this time it's not a rumor — Android 2.2 is set to be released to EVO 4G users beginning August 3.
As you may know, Android 2.2 comes with a ton of sweet upgrades, including improved browser performance, 4-way camera rotation, but what's more, the Froyo download could also be accompanied by a few over-the-air updates to the handset as well. Find out what they are after the jump.
There's been a lot of conversation about cases for the iPhone 4, but I'm feeling like the rest of the world — meaning non-iPhone 4 lovers — have been left out in the cold. There may not be an overabundance of chic cases available for the HTC EVO 4G just yet, but I've found a few that are worth checking out, and that will keep your smartphone (and its huge 4.3-inch screen) protected from everyday life. Take a look here!
We've pitted several of the latest phones against each other to see whose features would come out on top. Although I use an iPhone 4 myself, I'm not ashamed to say that I'm crushing on the Droid X pretty hard right now — it has some amazing features, plus it's due to get the Android 2.2 update, which will make it even smarter.
But the Droid X and iPhone 4 aren't the only smartphones on the block. Wondering which phone is right for you? Check out my feature comparison chart, and take a look back at all of our vs. posts after the break.
A ton of new phones have hit the market recently; among the three most talked about are the HTC EVO 4G, the iPhone 4, and the Motorola Droid X. With each phone comes a host of features — and a huge advertising campaign filled with buzz-worthy factoids and specs.

The Sprint EVO 4G is selling like mad, and now the popular Android phone is encountering delays. Similar to the stocking issues Verizon had with the HTC Droid Incredible, the EVO 4G supply is coming up short thanks in part to third-party vendors. An estimated 300,000 EVOs have been sold, but there is no current ship date listed on Sprint's site; instead, potential buyers are instructed to "check back soon" for information on when the phone will be ready.
HTC was relatively unknown until the Nexus One made its debut late last year and has since released an impressive lineup of smartphones. But with two major delays on its record (first the Incredible, now the EVO), consumers may start looking to other manufacturers to satisfy their smartphone needs — like Motorola and its Droid X — despite HTC's rave reviews, and Sprint's aggressive 4G coverage expansion. Want to know what's up with the white EVO 4G supply? Get my take after the break.
iPhone 4 be damned: if you're craving a crisp, white gadget for your smartphoning pleasure, don't wait for the (still unseen) white iPhone 4. Instead, reach for the white EVO 4G, which seems to be making its debut in Best Buy locations five days early. The White EVO 4G wasn't supposed to be released until next week on July 11, but some geeks have already spotted the smartphone on shelves around the country.
We already know that the EVO 4G stacks up to the iPhone when it comes to power, versatility, and function, but if you still aren't willing to throw down for a white iPhone 4 alternative, you'll have to master the art of patience for another few weeks when the fairer-hued iPhone 4 is supposed to make its appearance.
I've already showed you how well the Droid X stands up to the new iPhone 4 and how it also casts a shadow over the popular, but technically inferior, Droid Incredible. Now we're pitting the Droid X against another hard-to-get device: the HTC EVO 4G.
The HTC EVO 4G has been selling like hotcakes, and for good reason — it's quite the powerhouse when it comes to processing speeds, video, and tethering. It even comes in white! But how does it compare to the Droid X? Find out after the jump.
Had your heart set on getting your own white iPhone 4 on Thursday morning? Although no one has been able to crack the case of the missing white iPhone, you still have a few options — wait until the white iPhone 4 hits the market sometime "later this Summer," or suck it up and buy a different model phone. Good news is, there are a few awesome alternatives that can satisfy your color preference, and your need for a new gadget at the same time — you just have to know where to look. Best part? You probably won't have to call in sick to work and sleep on the sidewalk to get your hands on one.
- BlackBerry Bold 9000 ($200) — A favorite of celebrities and business-types alike, the BlackBerry Bold 9000 is sleek, stylish and is a tried-and-true smartphone from the inside out. A crisp and clear VGA backlit LCD screen shows over 65,000 colors, comes with a 2MP camera, and syncs up with your Windows Media Player or iTunes for easy transfer of your favorite jams.
- HTC EVO 4G ($200) — The iPhone 4's biggest competition just got a little more colorful. The white HTC EVO 4G will be sold exclusively at Best Buy starting on July 11, but you can place your pre-order now.
Check out the rest of my picks after the jump
The HTC EVO 4G is widely regarded as the iPhone 4's closest competition, and things are getting even more heated between the two now that it's been discovered that the EVO 4G will be released in white. Two powerful gadgets, one chic color.
These two phones really do stack up to one another. However, there is one thing the HTC EVO 4G has that the iPhone doesn't: a release date. Best Buy is taking white EVO 4G preorders starting today for $199 (with a two-year contract), and it will be available for purchase on July 11. The white iPhone 4? Still MIA. So tell me — would you rather a white HTC EVO 4G or white iPhone 4?
