I was at the HTC launch event for the Aria this week in Chicago, and one of HTC's representatives discussed the future release of clear battery doors for the Aria in order to show off the phone's yellow interior. These would be produced by HTC.

I would love the same for the EVO. Has anyone seen one?

There aren't any as of yet. It's been suggested, but nobody makes one. You can buy any kind of battery door at the moment.

I suggest getting a clear case and removing the battery cover and putting on the case instead.

There's another thread here about the battery cover and someone said a site is working on making their own but no ETA.

It's funny how they try to "bling" up phones. When I was reading all the reviews for the evo before it was released, they were talking about the "ferrari red" battery and compartment. Now a clear case to show off the battery and compartment. I'd buy one. But I have a case on my phone so it wouldnt do much good.

good idea though, definitely.

I looked into having some made. 10k for a mold. Price per piece wasn't bad, but that initial investment is a killer.

Huh, I wonder what the wife will think when I bring it up.

I just picked up a clear case off ebay for $6 shipped, I'll remove the battery cover and take a picture of it when it gets here next week.

I bet $50 he never makes a usable battery cover.

These forum part-makers never pan out.
