iResQ has posted some photos comparing the thickness of the iPhone 4S to the 'iPhone 5'.

The most interesting thing we see here is the fact that the iPhone 4 and 4S are thicker than the iPhone 5 by the thickness of the back glass. So here is an easy way to imagine the thickness of the iPhone 5: remove the glass backplate from your iPhone 4/4S and there you go! That's the approximate thickness of the iPhone 5.

The site also notes that the fully assembled unit has a good feel.

"Having the mostly assembled unit in our hands feels nice. It fits in the pocket just fine and I can see myself getting used to the longer screen rather quickly."

As one who has to manage several hundred iPhones and Androids... I'll take the SIII over the iPhone 5 everyday of the week and twice on Sundays. No competition. As a corporate device and in the mobile managemnet field, it isn't even close. Apple is a nightmare. Apple will not release vital API's for development. Want to make a GPS tracking location on Apple. Nope. Apple won't allow apps to auto start on restart. Know many employees who will choose to turn on their own tracking??? Google has a ways to grab the corporate brass ring the way RIM did, but they certainly are leaps and bounds ahead of Cupertino. http://www.iphonbuzz.com/iphone-5-iphone-4s-and-iphone-4-heres-the-technical-differences-between-apple-smartphones.html
