UPDATE 6:10 P.M.: What’s missing from the iPhone? Here’s another chance to weigh in.
UPDATE 2:50 P.M.: Some of our astute readers have noticed that we originally said Steve Jobs described the new iPhone as thinner than the previous version. They noted that Apple’s iPhone specs page says the 3G version is .48 of an inch, compared with .46 of an inch for the current model. But during his keynote address Jobs definitely touted the new iPhone as ‘thinner.’ So which is it? Thicker or thinner?
The answer: Both. Jobs threw in a caveat -- it’s thinner at the edges. The specs, however, list the device’s thickness by measuring its thickest point. So, although the new iPhone is a bit lighter (4.7 ounces vs. 4.8 ounces) and feels a little less bulky in the hand, it’s technically thicker than the older version.
