I have not heard of Amazon dealing with Foxconn, but it could be...
I'm going by memory only, but I thought it was more than just the new iPhone's screens, I thought I read that the entire outer shell was basically absurdly easy to scratch, and people were receiving them scratched right out of the box. (What little I read of it sounded like a poor design decision to me.) I had to get a new contract on an iPhone 4 (not S) at the worst possible time in the product dev cycle, so I'll be stuck with it for a while yet, and haven't been paying much attention other than the one article I read. (So I could be wrong.)
The SO's PW delivery got moved up from Friday to tomorrow, so I should have a new data point on screen quality tomorrow afternoon.
In the meantime, my new case and clip light for my KK show up today, and I'm pretty excited about that.
