This is not good news for new white iPhone users. Gizmodo expresses its potential concerns: "One report, it's an anomaly. Two reports, maybe one's fake. But more and more reports have been surfacing—with photos—of cracking white iPhone 3Gs. So is the white iPhone constructed in an inferior manner to the black model? Or are black iPhone 3Gs just better at hiding the cracks? We're not sure, and there's still too little info to know at this point whether the trend is something to be worried about." [Gizmodo]
