    They sound like retards.

    According to the apple site, the dimensions are the same, just .01 grams heavier

    They are the same exact size, only difference is the 3gs is just a tad heavier, if you even wanna call it heavier since its minimal. Spec sheet on apples site says the same exact measurements.

    Why are they selling a different phone?

    An iphone is an iphone, X amount of dollars is X amount of dollars, an informed consumer can buy anywhere.

    is that some young and trendy way of filming these days or was the camera guy just an idiot?

    It isn't thicker. I can tell you from looking at one now, and the Apple tech specs back this up:

    iPhone 3GS:
    Size and weight

    Height: 115.5 mm (4.5 inches)
    Width: 62.1 mm (2.4 inches)
    Depth: 12.3 mm (0.48 inch)
    Weight: 135 grams (4.8 ounces)

    iPhone 3G:

    Height: 115.5 mm (4.5 inches)
    Width: 62.1 mm (2.4 inches)
    Depth: 12.3 mm (0.48 inch)
    Weight: 135 grams (4.8 ounces)

    Based on the guy's gangsterisms, I'm guessing he means the 32GB iPhone is more phat than the previous generation.

    I've got both models sitting on my desk in front of me right now.

    They're exactly the same size.

    Yep exactly the same size and the air jacket case from the 3G fits the 3GS perfectly.

    "Yo, we got [it] two days before the release"..."The phones look exactly the same...Only difference is the 3GS is a bit thicker"

    He's wrong afaik. Interesting the guy said he had a prototype of the 3GS.

    I may well be wrong but when I first looked at my new 3GS, it did seem thicker as well. Might have been the shiny plastic still on it or maybe the 3g tapers off to be a little slimmer at the bottom? If that's the case, the official specs would still be the same.

    Edit: My case still fits fine tho

    The 32GB one i got today IS bulkier. Now its not to say its thicker because its not, BUT it is shaped differently. The 32GB 3GS compared to my previous 8GB 3G is fatter towards the ends. My Griffin clear hard case does not fit due to its bulkier back shape. The previous 8GB models had a macbook air type bowl tapered shape, which is why it kinda wobbles when you set it on the table, while this new 32GB one is flat backed. The 32GB definitely has more noticeable heft compared to my old 8GB 3G. Since this bulk doesn't actually make the phone thicker per-say since the thickest part in the middle is no thicker then previous gens, but the back is definitely shaped not as slender towards the edge as previous models. The store clerk says only the 32GB were made like this, the 16GB 3GS shares the same size as the old gens.
