I highly doubt this is accurate, Apple wouldnt make such a release of a 16GB iPhone this soon. Do you have pricing information since you know they are shipping?

seconded. This is the classic "claim something, and back it up with poor images". Classic, and a waste of someones time in photoshop.

I don't see why not. We know it will come eventually. Looks pretty good to me.

Who cares either way, 8GB more space doesn't make any difference.

I have to agree with you there, theres not even a clear picture of the iPhone box directly its on a side view angle, and the iPhone screen anyone can manupulate an image.

Double the space makes a big difference. If you are saying that because you want 80GB, well then I guess it wouldn't.

Good point, if you can take the picture, you mine as well not angle the box, or angle the camera to face the box...its not that hard...

Twice as much as not much is still not a lot. That's my point. It's not anything to get all huffy over if you already have an 8gb.

could be BS, but if you work for an Apple store or such, I doubt posing the iPhone and the box for a perfect picture to spread all over the net is encouraged.

He probably took a few quick snap shots while no one was looking.

Still could be bs obviously.

That's a pretty bold statement. Prepare to be shunned out of your n00by shoes if it's wrong.

Although if he's right, he should likely prepare to be fired.

I agree. It is BS. The box picture has the iPhone having the old calculator button.

I have to agree as well having taken a closer look at the screen shot. There are clear marks where it has been tampered with.

It's like spotting bigfoot. No one ever has a steady hand or a camera that focuses.
