Q: Is the form factor for zero cases the same? IOW, will a RPi Zero 1.3 case work with the the Zero W?
The new case fits both Pi0 and Pi0W.
I will depend on the case, so no they may not fit.
The PiBow Pi0W case will not fit the PiZero. That's a new case so there must be something fundamentally in the way.
But I cannot see it on the nice picture flip on here

The x-ray images out there but can't remember where I saw it.
The SoC/PoP RAM has been moved slightly to make room for the WiFi/BT circuitry. This is shown fairly clearly in one of the videos on today's (Thursday, 2 March) blog.
The "new case" that fits both is the one released by the RPF/RPT for about $6. (Rather frightening--but unavoidable at these price levels--the case is 60% of the cost of a Pi0W, and 120% of the Pi0.)
