The white iPhone 4 is thicker, won't fit in some cases - read the full textIt turns out we were wrong yesterday and the white iPhone launch was not all sunshine and roses after all. As disappointed users point out, the Great White is a fraction thicker than the black one. What's the big deal, you ask? After all the difference is really small as seen on these comparison...

As if this matters. Apple fans will take all kinds of abuse and come back for more. They are happy to have a phone that can't make calls without a case, they aren't going to care about a few mm.

C'mon people! I just purchased my white iphone 4 even though I'm using the black iphone 4. Trust me you will not even notice the thickness. It looks thick is because of the fact that it is white (more obvious) compared to black. I'm using the element case vapor 4 and it fits perfectly and comparing against the black iphone 4 with the vapor 4 casing side side, I do not even see any additional 'allowances' coming out! I have my doubts on the picture posted!

Secondly Nokia makes ten's of handsets and some as low as USD35-50 and does not count for much. So the news you want to hear is , yes Nokia is still number 1 in handset sales, Apple NUMBER 2, with just one model.

Naturally, even if they sell less units than, let's say Nokia, their revenue is bigger since Nokia phones are generally cheaper than iPhones.
