Who Wants a Glowing Apple Logo on Next Gen iPhone?
Two rumors now have Apple adding a MacBook-like glowing logo to the back of the next generation iPhone (iPhone 2,1). Who here's up for that? Does it have to be functional or just hellzacool?

I'm mixed. If it lights up for notifications if the iPhone is sitting face down then I might like it. But if it just lights up while I'm using it for effect then that is a dumb waste of battery, no matter how little it actually uses.

I doubt it would be bright enough, but if it would work as a camera flash I'd be super happy about it! A blink for notifications would be useful as well I suppose, but I rarely put my iPhone down face-down. Just a light for no other reason than to glorify the Apple logo? I don't use this word much, but: meh.

If the Apple logo lights up just for the sake of it, it's completely pointless because its on the back. If however it was used in conjunction with the home button for notifications, I'd be all for it! For example the white square on the home button, along with the Apple logo turning different colours depending on the type of notification i.e green for sms, yellow for im's, red for low battery, you get the idea. That would be absolutely fantastic! Please Apple make it happen!

Remember the double back light for the iphone patent they filled up not that long ago, I think thats its purpose(to light up the apple), I dont think itll use extra battery if they just cut the apple out and have the other backlight lit the apple logo.
Would make more sense to use the acselerometer and the apple logo for notifications,
It can probably be one of the notification options for the next iphone (badge, message, sound, back logo)

I wouldn't want a continuously lit logo nor one that lights up during a call. I wouldnt want it lit for notification purposes either unless the battery drain is almost nonexistent.
It would be awesome if the apple logo lit up to provide a flash for the camera, though
EDIT: having read other posts, color-coded notifications would be great...but again, only if it has a very small drain on battery life

I think it would be alright by me.
Like others have mentioned , I wouldn't want it to be a continuous glow.
I was reading the responses to the backlight here on TiPB and people have been saying that they never put their phone face down. I put my phone face down all the time , especially since the 3G has a curved back and since I have a case on it that has a lip around the screen.
I would like it for notification purposes. I'll just look at the back if I want to know if I have any messages or notifications.
Also for flash. Hopefully it's bright and not as opac as the photos depicts.

Glowing would be really cool if it doesn't drain the battery too much. Notifications would be great, but since I normally have a case on it, the new cases would have to have the logo cut out in order to see if it is flashing...
