White iPhone 4 delay due to light leaking out around the device
This article contains unofficial information.
Had the Cupertino based company used metal or plastic instead of glass, it could cover up the light using a simple coating. This cannot be used on glass which is a problem. Sprint has advertised its white EVO 4G phone as a potential substitute for those who really desire a white model, but this phone has also had some leakage problems along its seams, but not nearly as much as the iPhone 4 has had. The reason is that the HTC made EVO 4G uses a plastic material for the back of the phone, allowing the placement of a coating to block some of the light. Hopefully, Apple will be able to resolve this problem in time to ship some white iPhone 4 models before the end of the year.

Well if you grip it the right way the light should go away. Problem solved, now send out a million of em pronto.

As a self proclaimed Apple enthusiast...I even had to admit your post was hilarious...

Well, Gorilla Glass is awesome for not breaking, but this is hilarious. It's like Apple is playing a game of "Let's see how many stupidly simple bad design decisions we can make this time around, because we just don't give a fuck anymore. Oh, and give us your money." That's a long title for a game, though.

Clearly they do care because they are delaying the release of it so they can fix it. You sound like a fucking dumbass.

They could've gone with a different design which didn't use glass. Then they wouldn't have this problem to begin with.

Nice comeback, looks like you are running out of them fast man. Cmon, gimme a good excuse other than there are other phones out there. I expected more from you. Somebody is really trying hard to turn Apple into the next Sprint-Nextel. Now they are getting sued because of a faulty Ipad. Keep it up Apple! Time for a CEO change??????

So glad they haven't opted for white glass bumpers to solve the antenna issues. That would have just been REALLY embarrassing.
