Yellow-tinted 3G iPhones causing concern amongst new buyers

Over at MacRumors forums and Apple forums people are complaining about a yellow tint that covers the screen.  Anyone else having this issue?  How are you doing in the iPhone 3G screen lottery?  Did someone pee on your screen?

Or is this just the new 3G iPhone’s screen default "tint".  Maybe Apple went with a slightly less quality screen on the 3G iPhone – or same quality – different default tint.  So maybe the question should be: Does anyone have a white 3G iPhone screen?  Does anyone want to buy a 2G iPhone with Whiter white?  The price just went up $100…


Update: there are some reports that the yellow tint burns off after some use.  Is this your experience?
