The white iPhone 4 is slightly thicker than the black iPhone 4, according to user reports.

A MacRumors forum member writes, "Just picked up the white iPhone 4 and realized it doesn't fit into my Incase slider case. It appears that Apple has increased the size of the plastic that borders the glass on both sides by about 1mm. "

A colleague of mine just picked up a 16 GB iPhone 4 in white. I was a bit surprised when I picked it up off his desk (I had my black 32 GB in my other hand at the same time) – it immediately felt thicker. We placed them side-by-side on his desk, and sure enough, the white iPhone was a hair thicker.

Anyone else note the irony: \"I noticed it was thicker when it wouldn\'t fit into an old case\". If you\'ve waited so long to get your hands on a White iPhone, why the hell would you want to stick it in a case....? Yeah, I get the possible permutations of acquiring a case for an older phone on a newer model, but if you\'ve gone out of your way to wait for a white one.. you can wait a little longer for a case for it..
