    It shouldn't be wider, as then it would get stuck in the slot.

    Absolutely not wider. The physical specification of both cards are exactly the same.

    There are differences. The SD card can not be read in a SDHC card reader.

    So you'll need 2 card readers.

    Personal opinion, the main difference between SD and SDHC cards is a marketing poly. The manufacturers need us to replace all of our SD cards with new SDHC cards. You know bump up sales.
