    I'll keep my first post simple.

    I have yet to see even a screen shot of a white Sprint Hero. Is Sprint offering their Hero in multiple colors?

    If so will it be available on launch day 10/11?

    I talked to a Sprint rep and they are pretty tight lipped on anything to do with the hero as it's "not even in their system" yet.

    I re-upped my Sprint contract at the beginning of the month in anticipation of getting the Hero, and and am patiently waiting to get my hands on it so I can spike my god awful dinosaur nextel phone on the sidewalk.

    There isnt a white version, or any other color, as far as I know. It sounds like you are thinking of the GSM (Euro) version. Rubbery black backside, with a brushed metal front faceplate is the Sprint version.

    Come launch time, I seriously doubt it will come in any other colors. Afterwords though, it might. Odds are, the front side will always be the metallic brushed aluminum, but the back side will likely come in an assortment of colors (inlcuding white).

    Im confused about the re-upping. Did you renew your contract? Or are you currently waiting to renew when the Hero comes out?

    And Quantum...

    Assuming that the cover splits at about half it would still leave quite a bit of black rubber on the front and sides. Not sure how good that would look with different colored backs.

    I just meant that the aluminum face would remain the same color (most likely wont be anodized or anything), and the rest of the phone (currently a re-enforced black plastic) would have several colors to choose from.

    Yeah, I got all that.

    What I havent seen is how the back pops off but what Im thinking it is just past the volume rocker button heading away from the face. Which would leave a lot of the black rubber around the front & sides. Im sure there will be different backplates for it, I just dont know how good they are going to look if you cant change the molding on the top half.

    For instance. A hard white plastic back, in my mind, is not going to look so good bumping up against the black rubber on the front half.
