    Mine is exactly the same...don't think theres a problem

    EDIT: If you change the backlighting settings it does get brighter (the whole thing including the keyboard getting brighter too)

    Is it caused by the paint scratched off of the panel.

    This is a common situation, or?

    Figure it probably is common cuz mine looks exactly the same as well.

    I wouldn't say common but doesn't effect performance. Just more poor build quality from RIM. Also, look how your trackpad is slightly twisted. The lower right corner is higher than the lower left corner. Yours is good compared to many that are really crooked.

    That's the light diffuser inside the keypad. Below standard quality from RIM. I have this on my 9900 and I've seen it on all the 9900s I came across....
    Don't worry about it.

    I had this on my first 9930 but not my second (replacement) one. Like others have said, it doesn't affect performance, but I know what you're talking about.

    Try turning your screen brightness down to 10% to see if that helps. Just a thought.

    One of mine has it and one does not. The Mexico 5 seem to have less incidence than the 4.

    I've got a Hungarian made unit, and have the exact same. I must be honest, it doesn't really bother me.

    Can we drop backlighting to less than 10% to 5% or something with a 3rd party app? Cause it's bright enough even on 10%

    No matter what backlight setting I go for, I do not have this problem. I have the light evenly distributed. I think this is an issue with poor quality control.

    My first 9900 was an unlocked Telus on at&t and it had even lighting but very noticeable crooked touch pad. My current 9900 is at&t branded, mexico 4 build as well, and it has even light distribution and an ever so slightly crooked touch pad. Keys are a little squeeky though.

    Most of the keyboards and pads have some type of deformity.hard to believe they were released that way. Kind of embarrasing.
