Are there really Fire HDX units out there in the wild without the blue/purple border on white screens?

I love this HDX but the 4mm bluish border is annoying. As you read web articles you can look down at the bottom of the screen and see text behind this border.

I plan check out the 8.9 but it would be good to know a border-free 7" can be had.

HD movies on this tablet are supreme.

My 7" HDX doesn't have a noticeable blue haze. I have an extremely faint blue "line" around pages in books and on web pages. However, I doubt if I would have even noticed this if I hadn't looked for it. It's barely visible.

I also have a really faint blue border that I did not notice until reading posts on here. It does not interfere with reading books or webpages.

The blue haze on my HDX 7 was very distracting when on the internet, or reading books. I know this didn't bother many people but for me, it was a deal killer.
I'm currently using my standby Paperwhite for reading and a year-old 8.9 HD. Hoping that the 8.9 HDX is free of the border so I can upgrade to the faster device with a rear camera, which also downloads prime videos.

Count me as one who didn't notice any blue around the edges of the screen until I saw folks talking about it. It is very faint on my HDX, and I have to purposely look for it to see it.

I have a kindle hdx 7 and there is no blue edge or line. Mine works perfectly.

So I have to ask.. if you open a book on a white screen there is no change in color from the first 4mm (outside edge in)?
