iphone_16GB Well, we knew it was coming. Apple's 16GB iPhone is here and it's $100 more than the one we already have. I wonder how many they'll build and sell. It looks like the only change is the storage capacity. For some I guess another 8GB is nice to have, but for me I don't need it. I'll make a move (quickly) when a 3G iPhone ships. Hopefully soon, and hopefully with features like MMS and video recording. iPhone is available in an 8GB model for $399 and the new 16GB model for $499.

There's also a 32GB iPod Touch. Now that's kinda cool. But I already have an iPhone, and if I buy another media player it will probably be a Zune.

So... Anyone buying?

Nope. 8GB is plenty for me. I'm with you though, a 3G iphone would be worth the upgrade. Let's hope it arrives sooner rather than later! And while video would be a nice add, I'm more anxious for software features like flash and a clipboard.

It's tempting. Our iPhone is down to about 800MB. The additional 8GB of space would be great.

Bah. Useless. I want my whole music collection with me so I don't have to fuss about managing playlists and selections; inevitably I end up wanting to listen to something I didn't have in a playlist. I've got 96.3GB used on my 160GB iPod classic. Let me know when they come out with the 160GB iPhone or iPod Touch and I'll be all over it.

I'll buy one when they come out with it for Verizon. Word is I still have another 1.5 years to wait :(

I am happy with my 8gig phone even though a few times it was like 90% full, but clearing out my listened-to podcasts tends to make it better :).

For me going from 8 to 16 is not worth it as an upgrade for that kind of money, but for new buyers it might be another incentive to buy. (At least those not worrying as much about the price and caring more about the features)
