I noted that I cannot put the new 3G into my old iPhone dock. Does anyone know why the difference? The phone dimension are very similar! In addition to getting a new phone, I will have to get new docks for the car charger, car stereo and office. Bummer!!!

    The iPhone 3G has a slight curved back, while the old iPhone 2G is completely flat.

    Jorge is right. I tried to put mine in the old iPhone dock and the only thing keeping it from fitting in is the curved back of the new phone, whereas the old one was flat. The official iPhone 3G dock is available on Apple's online store..but it is 30 bucks....kind of price-y for a dock that should have been free.
    EDIT: Here's the link
    I'm going to have to buy it because I can't live without a dock....
