White Apple iPhone v Nokia N8?
That classic Apple colour on the new iPhone is proving much harder to perfect than first thought. Apple is apparently having trouble getting the paint thick enough on the front display to be perfectly white. Hmmnn piss yellow iPhone anyone? Too thin and the light bleeds through. The binder Apple is/was using causes a slight off-color tint coupled with a promise that it will shipped “in the near future” our heart bleeds while we wait. Solution is easy? Putting silver on white turns white gray. The key is to get the white opaque – which only pigment solids will do. Most white pigment is titanium dioxide the other is zinc oxide (like you put on your nose in the summer). Meanwhile, shock, horror, probe, the iPhone4 gets removed from PC World’s Top Ten Cell Phones. Misery piled on misery but there is hope and it’s the Nokia N8.
