I didn't realize they had PBs without the bulge. Of the dozen or so PBs I've handled, I can't recall 1 being perfectly flat. I have noticed the variation in power buttons though. On my newest one it is nice and raised. First one, not so much, hahaBB4Life

16GB I bought in February lays flat on a table.
64GB I bought last month has a noticeable bulge, but it is in a case 95% of the time so it isn't a big problem, but it does show that RIM does not have problems with quality control.

Convertible Case by BB and you'll never know the bulge is there! (I can't imagine ever using my PB without the Convertible Case anyway.)

Had my PB a few days and I noticed the back feeling quite warm (not hot). I had seen this thread in the forum so I took a closer look and there was the bulge. Not huge, but certainly a bulge and yes, it will not sit flat now though you wouldn't notice unless you specifically checked.
I'm fairly sure this is not supposed to happen and I'm only concerned that the expanding is going to cause damage or the battery may split. Worst case I have a three year exchange guarantee with Currys (UK store) who say they will instantly exchange the PB even if you drop it yourself.I used to be indecisive but now I'm not so sure....

The bulge is due to the logo and some heat. There's an old post about carefully heating it with a hair dryer and placing it between a couple of books and placing a heavy object (like your mother in law) on top.

Back in Nov. (?) when Staples had their $120 sale on 32gbs the neighbour aaand my sister wanted one so even before paying for the units standing at customer service counter opened the boxes checking for the 'baby bump', flush power button, or scratches along the edges it was not till the 3rd (factory fresh) unit that a flat bottom unit was found and also the next one tooo ! This process went well 'cause I had called a ahead to the manager to confirm they still had units in stock so he was the one who helped open... peruse, and go back to the stock rm. when the 'baby bumps' were showing . . . . ."G-Gauge may not RULE, But it GROWS on Ya !!

I fixed the buldge on one of my PB's and it has stayed flat for close to a year now. It's strickly cosmetic issue.
