Yet another problem with HTC 7 Trophy reported, HTC planning to issue a recall?

According to no less than nine XDA developers, there are streaks on the HTC 7 Trophy's screen that look very much like bubbles between the different layers of the Super LCD. All attempts to fix the problem have proved to be in vain.
But that's not all. The original user who leaked the problem went to the store where he bought the device and along with the manager inspected a new batch of phones, only to find that it's not a one-off device and there are other HTC 7 Trophy handsets with the very same problem. Reportedly, the manager said that HTC are aware of the problem and would be "issuing a recall".
It seems very likely that there is no future for the HTC 7 Trophy, at least for the time being, but the interesting part is how Windows Phone 7 and indeed HTC would pick themselves from here. This is no doubt a setback for Microsoft's new OS and a stain on HTC's reputation of delivering great all-around phones.
Take a look at the video below to see the problem for yourself.
It is an ugly phone - with that diagonal two-tone finish it should have been dubbed "The Riddler". Makes you wonder why T-Mobile accepts such crap from HTC when they are the very reason that HTC has grown into a contender. HTC sends their best designs to Verizon and AT&T. T-Mobile should yank all their products and get their attention.

I also have a problem with the display. Same thing happens to me. Unable to see the display at all. Only if I have a kind of light as the battery can not see what is going on in the HTC. I do not know how such things can be sold with such a great phone by mistake. I do not understand, and vendors of such phones this is a great shame for such konpaniju.

I used to be able to get various apps from the marketplace and in the last month or so I havent been able to access any new apps... I select 'install' and get this error message 'Can't get this information at the moment. Check again in a little while.' I keep trying but to no avail. What could be the issue?

I've had my HTC Trophy since May and since I've had it I keep having the same problem ... it keeps shutting down for absolutely no reason and it happens several times a day. Has plenty of battery when it happens. Tried removing the battery but that did not help. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Yes actually I am having the same problem i got mine since June but just a couple of weeks ago it started shutting down by itself. After a while it came to my attention that it shuts down if you slightly slap it at the back just below the battery. Unfortunately not good warranty support in Greece! So I am just being careful before putting it on a table and I use a case. Please feel free to contact me if you have any news on the issue.
