White Evo with Black Battery Door Spotted at XDA
Ok, well strictly speaking this is a mod, but a pretty easy one! Changing the look of a stock Evo has been a popular subject in the forums, and XDA forum member stanglifemike decided to change the look of his.

The Android device looks pretty neat with it’s now two tone sporty look although some members have joked it looks like an Oreo, or as one member put it: an ‘OrEVO’…..(*groan*)

As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
