    I saw this story linked off of the Drudge Report, claiming this person dropped their iPhone 4 from about a foot up.
    I guess those cases are needed!!

    If posted already.. delete please.

    Did that person take a photo of their cracked iPhone 4 (black) with a white iPhone 4?

    or is my iPad screen just bad?

    It's definitely a 4, you can see the LED flash.

    I get that it's pretty, but making a phone entirely out of glass seems moronic.

    That's definitely a white iPhone 4. You can even see the outside antenna.

    I don't get why they ever switched away from the aluminum design of the original iPhone. Durable AND beautifully designed.

    If it's good enough to use in the industrial design of the MBPs, it should be good enough for the phones.

    lol no thats from motion blur. Whoever took the picture could not sit still, so the image is blurred. It's definitely a 3G or 3Gs.

    Again the "ring" around the camera hole on the broken iPhone looks larger because of the motion blur. ;)
    But still after looking at it, the broken iPhone does look kind of fake...it would explain the intentional blur :)

    No, the picture's crap. The iPhone 4 takes much better pictures than that.

    Why whenever there is an issue the person never posts a decent picture? FFS everyone I know has at least a 5mp point and shoot.
