This may be old news, but I was curious how the iPhone compared to the current gen iPod and dug up some interesting numbers.

"5.5"G iPod (30 or 60 Gig)
Size: 4.1 x 2.4 x 0.43 inches
Weight: 4.8 ounces

iPhone
Size: 4.5 x 2.4 x 0.46 inches
Weight: 4.8 ounces

Basically the same size and weight as the iPod, just a little longer.

So if you want to simulate how the iPhone would feel at hand or to lug around in a pocket, try a 30 or 60 Gig 5.5G iPod. (The 80 Gig model is a bit thicker/heavier.)

It will be taller, and sleeker, and cooler, and awesomer, and yes, you get the point. It will be taller. Has anyone used sizeasy.com? Thats a good size comparison site.

would there be any difference in weigh due to flash memory in the iPhone vs a hard drive in the 30gb ipod?

Certainly those components have differing weights. But for the overall weight both devices are the same (data was taken from Apple's website).

obviously we all want our iPhones not too large. But being big enough to type of the virtual keys would be worth the extra space. i hope your able to text horizontally, it would enable the letters to be bigger and be a "fuller" keypad.
