IPhone 3Gs looks - any tiny difference?
Is there any even-so-slight tiny difference in the way the 3Gs looks compared to the 3G, except of course the print on the back? Any button shaped differently, is the camera lens visibly different, any slight dimension change?
It's always fun to spot the differences...

I think it's intended to be 100% identical so that accessories and cases are all completely compatible. Tweaking it even slightly would screw this up.
There COULD be a difference in the number of or placement of sensors behind the glass, I don't know. Just a thought.
I suspect it will say iPhone 3GS on the back vs 3G, and that's the only difference.

In addition to what taylorh said , if the device is changed manufactures would have to have two different accessories for two different phones that do the same thing on one software.
Apple is also a software company. They care more about software than hardware - You see that in the computers. Also , why fix what is not broken ? Apple has sold so much from the iPod and the design hasn't drastically changed since. Same thing with the iPhone/iPodT.

I, for one, am glad they did not change the design/dimensions. I just purchased a Morphie Juice Pack Air and didn't want to get a new one when I upgrade.
Also, any other cases will definitely fit as well. For anyone who has a 3G, this should be seen as a positive.

I know people trick their phones out with cases anyway, but if they had just offered it in 4 or 5 different colors, they'd sell just because of that.
My wife would insist on a pink one, I now it.
That would allow them to keep the form factor identical. However with colors that creates a replacement/refurb SKU nightmare.
