I'll believe that when I see it first hand. I think this is fake.

1mm is more than 10% of the thickness of the iphone 4. Do you really think that white iphone is 10% thicker than the black one? Even with the white iphone tipped in that picture to make it look thicker, it isn't 10% thicker.

But yes if it were really true it would be a problem.

It took them 12 months to come up with that solution?

Wow!

realistically who cares, just like the Ms Vs Apple profits story.

Arn please stop on the non-stories.

Id be interested to know how much thicker it is. Its not issue for 99% of people, but can see how it might mess up some cases

I believe he's talking about them moving the volume buttons for the Verizon iPhone. So a case for the AT&T iPhone won't fit the Verizon iPhone.

I feel another lawsuit coming on.

Class action for 0.01 mm AND I am sure the glue is not dry and it will shrink.

Nothing a little hammer wouldn't fix:-)

I'd be amazed if you could say something non-trollish for once.

Those iPhones in the photo are the exact same size, just a simple case of forced perspective. The White iPhone is tilted ever so slightly to give the illusion of increased size.

At this point I'm sort of glad the iP5 won't (likely) come out until September. That'll give the white phone a few months of real world use. I'm curious if it'll still be white and pristine a few months from now.

Is this good for case manufacturers (more product varieties to sell, more shelf space allotted, more chance to sell a new case to a user who changes models) or a headache (less economy of scale, more customer confusion)?

I honestly think "0.37 inch" is probably accurate enough for both white and black, as they are probably both within 0.365-0.375 inches. 0.01 inches = 0.25 mm, which is more like what it looks like the difference is in the pic to me...

It's not, actually. Every time a change in the phone comes out, the manufacturer has to make new cases to reach those new customers, necessitating new tools/molds/whatever (so more cost on their end). Any manufacturer would prefer that the same case worked for all iPhone4s because then they would only have to spend the manufacturing dollars once to reach every iPhone4 customer. Plus, less confusion when people are buying cases.

That's probably why the white iPhone 4 looks fatter on the box.

Maybe you should have a look at the rest of the comparison photos.

It'll be interesting to see if this is across the board.
