You're right, I am talking about a different problem that lends a blue tint.

A couple were Android devices, one crap blackberry phone (which of course was horrible anyways), Canon point, and shoot and a Mark II something dSLR (which I think is overkill for internal shots like this). None had the blue tint, so I guess they do something different.
Oh well. Maybe I should learn something about post processing to clean these photos up and remove that tint. There are several like that. If anyone has any tips, just PM me.
iPhone doesn't auto white balance as aggressively, where iPhone will show you what it looked like closer to absolute terms, other cameras tend to neutralize the photos. In the case of that photo, you're seeing as it is, you are getting light from a blue sky, so why is it a surprise to see blue light?
Picasa, iPhoto, Aperture, Lightroom and many other photo editing programs have white balance adjustments. The easiest tool lets you pick the part what you want call white and it adjusts the whole picture accordingly, the more advanced programs let you make manual adjustments using sliders.
