“As my colleague, Phillip Elmer-DeWitt reported this weekend, the iPhone 4 has a significant issue that might be able to be fixed with a software update, it might not.

Additionally, the front and back glass screen has been accused of making the iPhone fragile as well as being easy to scratch. Finally, the yellowing of pixels and other strange manufacturing errors have emerged.
