[Endgadget]Mobile Handsets White iPhone 4 thickness creates issue for case makers, ow

By now you've probably seen the latest spectacle to consume the white iPhone 4: it's thicker than the black model. The image above illustrates the point using a piece of lead from a mechanical pencil. So what, you say, in righteous indignation to a device that shipped ten months late.

I do honestly wonder, sometimes, if Apple does these type of things on purpose. Perhaps Steve Jobs is just sitting in his office, smiling to himself, saying, softly: "Trolololololol".

Besides that, it's not that big of an issue. They'll just need to make cases for the new phone, and hey, they make more money then, so everyone wins, right? Well, except the consumer. Whoo!

Soft cases should be fine. It's the hard ones that may have a problem.

I'm sure it's just a bug, a software update will fix it.

I give up.
This is like the Verizon buttons. I mean, it's not like they were completely realigned but the mere cm or two that they were killed the cases. Here we are again with a very similar problem. Does Apple double check these things?
