iPhone 4 yellow band

Remember a few months ago when Apple launched the 27-inch iMac and there were reports of some units experiencing yellow screen discoloration?  The issue is plaguing Apple again as Gizmodo is reporting that a similar problem is happening with some iPhone 4s.  Several users have emailed Gizmodo with photos showing either a yellow band or spot on their new device's screen.  The problem seems to be sporadic right now, but we'll see just how widespread the issue really is when the iPhone 4 launches in stores tomorrow.

This news comes as a bit of a surprise considering it looked like Apple had solved their screen woes with the 27-inch iMacs. However, there will be manufacturing defects with any new device launch, so while the news is disappointing, it's understandable.  If your device is experiencing a yellow band on its screen, I'm sure Apple would be happy to replace your device if you contact them, meaning you get a(nother) shiny new iPhone 4!  So, lucky iPhone 4-toting readers, are any of you experiencing any yellow screen problems?
