White iPhone has flash problems, says Steve Wozniak
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak told "The Engadget Show" that the white iPhone delays might be due to a problem with the LED camera flash.
Wozniak told Engadget that he bought white iPhone parts from someone who obtained them from manufacturer Foxconn.
The problem, Wozniak said, is that light from the flash can bleed over to the lens through the white glass, causing the images to blur. The color of the glass can't keep the light from leaking into the lens, and Wozniak said that images taken with his white iPhone look as though they'd been taken through cellophane.
Rumors about the white glass affecting the quality of pictures have been around for months and were first reported by the Cult of Mac in October.
The white iPhone's launch has been delayed several times, though recent leaks from Best Buy's inventory system and AT&T's Web site indicate that a launch might not be far away.
