Am I the only one who thinks it odd that Sprint's EVO is a red and black phone? :P

    When I saw the incredible, I thought it looked pretty mince for a Verizon phone. I usually didn't like their red and black color scheme, but they seemed to make it work on this model. The red interior under the hood is a nice touch.

    Then I saw the EVO 4G, and I was confused. It has the same color scheme as Verizon's Incredible; even the red interior.
    Maybe I'm missing something, but shouldn't it be yellow and black?

    It just looks odd to see a phone sporting verizon's color scheme on sprint...

    Yellow wouldn't have looked good. Remember, the color will be seen underneath the kickstand. I see what you're saying, but red is a pretty standard color anyway ;P

    Yeah, not a big fan of the red but much better than yellow. Their default theme on WM phones was hideous back in the day:

    I thought I heard a rep saying the red was just for prototype units and the retail units are actually going to be silver. I hope not though, I think the red is a nice touch and makes it look a bit more cool and sleek. Would be nice if we had a choice in color though; I'd prefer blue myself.

    Maybe they gave yellow a try and realized how hideous it looks =p

    The back still has red accents and it is red under the back plate.

    i think it might be an HTC thing and how they mold the interior plastic???? IDK just speculating, but it wouldn't be that hard to airbrush over it with some good taping

    Well we haven't seen CONFIRMED launch units, so I guess we'll just have to wait and see.

    Well if it is, then I guess HTC is just doing that to all their phones.

    Same deal as the Incredible.

    Yeah, my mistake. I went back to the vid and I guess I had confused it with something else. I agree must be an HTC thing.

    They were talking about the earpiece, there was some models with a red speaker grill but the production ones will have silver.

    dylan, I think I threw up in my mouth a little. Reminds me too much of the old stock Mogul I posted. That and bumblebees.

    No garish colors dammit!

    Here's a better yellow one, I just whipped up. Just not a fan of yellow, nor of any color really. I just want black and silver personally, but I can live with red.

    I don't think the yellow looks too bad, personally, but I definitely would prefer silver out of all colors.

    Sprint's colors were red, white and black before the Nextel merger.

    Do you mean something besides having all of the color removed? Because that seems easy enough to do on one's own...
