    OK, so I am getting an iPhone this weekend. I am kind of hurting this month financially. But I feel its "ok" to hit the credit card to buy the iPhone. (gives me a couple of months to pay for it)

    My question is, and maybe more people have this question; Will the 8Gig. Be enough for app downloads? I really wont be storing music since i have my ipod and only use it in my car. I would be using my phone mainly for the internet and email capabilities.

    Basically i dont think I need the extra space and I am sure I need the extra $100 bucks.

    ANY INFO ON THIS? Will i be able to get enough apps on a 8gig. I currently have the 8Gig iPhone. I think i have only one music album on it. And no pictures at all.

    I think you'll be fine with 8GB! Eg. iWork - a full set of desktop applications is only 441MB!

    I'm not sure how big these iPhone apps will be but I can't imagine them being too large.

    8GB should be fine if you're not storing music & video librarys!

    I'm sure that 8GB is sufficient for your purposes.

    its 511MB on mine!

    iphone apps will be tiny, apps for jailbroken iphones were only around 0.5mb (500kb)

    im guessing the 16GB is for those who

    1) want to carry around a bulk fo their music with them.
    2) combine both a phone and an iPod together
    3) love watching -alot- of movies

    me, im getting an 8GB..
    if that helps you make your choice.
