Are Ones in black available?

Does anyone have a quote or info from HTC regarding cost to change out battery? (I'm thinking 2 yrs. away here.)
1) I assume Sprint will stick to it's policy of having to be on Sprint for X amount of time before they will unlock the SIM. They mention in the Get Started Guide that in order to activate the Worldwide Service you must first at least have run some Sprint Data.
2) It has GSM 850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz and UMTS 850, 900, 1900, 2100 MHz. LTE will not work in Europe no matter what.
3) Black Ones are not available for order yet
4) No quotes on swapping out the battery but based on iFixIts tear down it doesn't look like it is a simple process, if possible at all.
