We are used to seeing mobile phones available in various colors, but it isn’t often that we see an aluminum-bodied phone offered in a different color. The HTC Legend, which has been available in aluminum silver will soon be available in phantom black across Europe.

The HTC EVO 4G got off to a great start, but now some bad news is surfacing about the device, with some users complaining that the device is experiencing glass separation issues, which lead to possible light leakage.

The Sprint Evo 4G will be on sale for $200, with contract, on June 4th. It will feature two-way video chat on 3G and 4G networks, hence the forward-facing camera. Looks like it will run Qik, a third party app, which probably means that you can make cellphone-to-computer calls.
