White iPhone 4 delay due to light leaking out around the device
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.
