The rumours of a new 16GB iPhone turned out to be true, as it’s just gone on sale in the US Apple Store for $499. In all other respects, it’s identical to the existing 8GB model, which is still available for $399.
At the time of writing, there’s no sign of it on Apple or O2’s UK websites, but we’re assured that it will be on sale here too imminently, where it’ll cost £329.
Meanwhile, Apple has also launched a 32GB iPod Touch for $499, doubling the memory of the previous top-spec 16GB version. The new Touch is available worldwide immediately, in contrast to the new iPhone.
“For some users, there’s never enough memory,” says Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide iPod and iPhone Product Marketing. “Now people can enjoy even more of their music, photos and videos on the most revolutionary mobile phone and best Wi-Fi mobile device in the world.” I’ll be more impressed when Apple lets the rest of the world in on the 16GB iPhone fun.
