Anodizing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Scroll down to "anodized aluminum" in fact it looks like it has a low to moderate wear resistance

If there is any wearing off it must be really moderate because they didn't have pics of this claim. So moderate that it's something that can't even be captured in a picture.
It will totally suck if this is true. I don't use a case for shiit.

Let's hope a company like Apple did not let that happen to perhaps it's biggest release of any iOS devices yet - when 75% of the buyers will probably choose black as always. That would be terrible. There's probably already 3 millions pre-ordered black iP5 now, and more will be sold on launch day. If that problem should occur on a large scale, you can bet Apple might not make those big Christmas sales they're banking on unless they move quick and fast - and that will probably include replacements of faulty units.
I'm not too worried, though. I'll believe it when I'll see it - and I'm pretty sure I won't. Do you really think Apple would take such a risk to have to call back production, even replace sold units, because they needed to rethink PAINT??!!?!!

All i know is im not using any type of case that 'snaps' onto the iPhone because just looking at my iPhone 4, there are little black marks on the silver band on the side from cases that snap onto it and then when you snap them off, they scrath up the sides, so if you are gonna use a case, i'd go with a bumper or something that wont scrape

It's a chance your going to have to take getting one out the gate. So let's say it does rub the black off in a couple weeks, what do you think should happen? I would bet that Apple will not switch you colors or replace the ip5. It's cosmetic, the phone still functions fine then your stuck to put a case on it.

Coming from Apple. Is this totally unexpected.
What the **** man. they had 98 billion to CREATE THE iPhone 5.
2 WHOLE YEARS TO MAKE IT. And a flaw comes out.
Coupled along with the failure of Apple maps for public transportation.
If Google Nexus is awesome this year. I'm going to kiss good bye
