Consumer Reports: White iPhone 4 Is Not Thicker Than the Black One

Speaking of Consumer Reports:

Recently an avalanche of news and tech sites reported that the white iPhone 4 was thicker than the black iPhone, even showing side-by-side photos claiming it was 2mm thicker than the black version.

But when we compared a white iPhone 4 with a black iPhone 4 in our Yonkers, NY, lab using high-quality calipers, we found they were both the same thickness (0.37 inches). This supports Apple’s assertion that the devices are the same size.

Kudos to Dr. Drang, for one, for being skeptical of the “white iPhone is thicker” claims right from the start.
