The retail package of the new iPhone 3G contains only the strictly necessary accessories like a charger, headphones, a USB cable and the usual manuals and software CD. In terms of design, the iPhone 3G comes with a classic Apple aspect, with a case made of high-quality materials, with rounded edges and curved lines. Measuring 115.5 x 62.1 x 12.3 mm in dimensions and 133 grams in weight, it looks very compact and solid. The case is available in two colors, black and white, two classic colors for Apple Company. The front side of the phone, similar with the older iPhone 2G, is occupied by a large touch screen and a unique Home button placed below it. The left side of the phone hosts only two volume buttons while the right side is clear. The top part of the handset hosts a 3.5 mm audio jack, a Power On / off button and a SIM card slot.
