    According to Apple's website:

    3G iPhone = 115.5 x 62.1 x 12.3 mm (L x W x H)
    2G iPhone = 115.0 x 61.0 x 11.6 mm (L x W x H)

    Or for those metrically-challenged people:

    3G iPhone = 4.5 x 2.4 x 0.48 inches (L x W x H)
    2G iPhone = 4.5 x 2.4 x 0.46 inches (L x W x H)

    Which doesn't show as much difference since inches are far less accurate than millimeters.

    Those differences are so small as to be almost imperceptible. We're talking .5-1mm.

    and how does it weigh? I know the new weighs 133grams. What about the old one? I didnt find anything on Apple's website (though I admit I didnt look hard - watching Italy - Hollland now!)

    He did indeed. So why are these numbers higher?

    aaah, well that doesn't seem exactly fair to say...It's overall thicker, but thinner on the edges?

    I guess the average thickness across the device is lower than the average on the current model.
