No size difference. The HSPA+ version has the microphone in a different location than the 8 GB, 16 GB, and the 32 GB Wi-Fi.

You can just get a universal case which will fit both the Wi-Fi only and the HSPA+.

The FitFolio from Speck Products is now a universal case.

Then why cant you get a Otterbox for the Google Nexus 7 32GB 3G - Only the WiFi?

From their site:
Compatability:
Google Nexus 7 16GB Wi-Fi only
Google Nexus 7 32GB Wi-Fi only
NOT COMPATIBLE with the Google Nexus 7 32GB 3G + AT&T SIM

The 32GB with data has its microphone in a different place and one other part has been moved as well. Supposedly.these changes were made to accommodate the HSPA+ chip.

Some cases are now saying universal or Wi-Fi only.

I bought a BobjGear rubber case for mine and it definitely covers both microphones but keeping it due to kids in house. I also bought a fit folio case that covers ports and am returning it.

Note that helps

The only difference between the two models is the location of one of the microphones and also that the HSPA+ version also has a SIM tray. So, I guess the OtterBox version is not configured properly for the HSPA+ version of the Nexus 7.
