White HTC EVO 4G no longer exclusive to Best Buy

White-evo-sprint-nov After a solid four-month run, Best Buy and the white HTC EVO have ended their exclusive relationship and are exploring an open one instead.

The white-backed EVO is now available just about anywhere and everywhere the original EVO is sold. That means you can get the glossy white handset from Sprint.com, Sprint locations across the country, Radio Shack, and other retailers.

The price is still the same ($199.99 with two-year contract after a $100 mail-in rebate) but since that's just the MSRP, you can probably expect to see it going for less than that at many places. Radio Shack, for example, usually skips the mail-in rebate part and sells the phone for its after-rebate price.

I don't know how popular the white EVO was to begin with, but I wonder how its wider availability will actually affect sales. Now that words like "special," "exclusive," and "limited" won't be used to describe the white phone, will just as many people want it?
