Sprint is apparently going to win the race against AT&T for getting a new powerful white smartphone in people’s hands – starting today, buyers can pre-order white HTC Evo 4Gs at Best Buy in the US, and should have them in hand on July 11.

While the Evo has been popular since it hit shelves a couple of weeks ago, the one main complaint has been the battery life. That said, for those that were still teetering on the edge between the Evo & Sprint and the iPhone 4 & AT&T, lots’ of people like white devices (which ironically Apple made popular) so this availability so soon may push more people towards the Evo (anyone’s guess on the actual date we’ll see white iPhone’s on the market).
