Apple's Listed Sizes Inaccurate?
So, Apple lists the iPhone 4 at around the same height, slightly shorter than the 3GS. They also say it has a 3.5" display.
As you can see by my comparison of Apple's renders, this isn't possible. Notice the difference between the screen and speaker, the screen and the home button. When you adjust the iPhone 4 to Apple's specified height, the screen is noticeably smaller.
Thoughts? Maybe the screen on the render is inaccurate in terms of size (doubt it)?

Both the 3GS and the 4 have a 3.5" ( diagonal ) screen.
I'm guessing the rendering is off, and was enlarged to show differences and seem more vibrant, not an accurate to scale model.
Take the images off the tech specs portions and compare those. I think the 3GS comes out larger.

The difference is actually easy to see the chrome bezel on the 3gs is where you get the extra .3 mm take a look again you can see the bezel is thicker on bottom
Ima have to agree the renders aren't completely accurate because the 3gs is bigger but theres no way apple would release a smaller than 3.5 screen go look at people's hands on comparisons at wwdc there a few pic on engadget showing the devices side by side and they look like they have he same size screen to me
