    I've heard people think that there might be more 8GB iPhone's than 4GB. So, which model are you getting?

    already posted. do a quick search. I can save you the trouble though, almost everybody wants the 8gb phone. 4gb is too small.

    Yeah, right after i posted this i saw the poll. But im looking at the 4GB becuase i already have a video iPod, and i dont have that much music either.

    even though it seems like the majority wants the 8gb, i will prob just get the 4gb, both are too small to really store large amounts of music or video, so I'll just get the 4gb now and use it to replace my nano then when apple releases one with 30 or more gigs I'll upgrade to that so i can put videos, etc.. on it.

    if the models had other differences like the PS3 had, then I would prob opt for the more expensive one.

    anyone else feel the same way i do?

    Will it be fairly easy to replace/upgrade the memory in the future? Say that they come out with a 30gig chip that will fit in the same slot, will it be possible to replace the 4/8gig and transfer all the information over?

    I would say no way on the upgrade though there may be a 3rd party company doing it down the line. Will it be worth it over replacing at that point? Most likely not. Go for the 8.

    I seriously doubt it, but on a side not, flash memory comes in powers of two (2,4,8,16,32,64 etc) so there won't be a 30GB chip :)

    Well what Im saying is basically I have to have this thing upon launch so I dont really care what the storage is since I'm sure newer models with more storage and more features will be out before xmas. So I will get the 4gb cheaper one now and just wait till some big enhancements are made and storage gets up to 32gb+ to upgrade to a new iphone.

    Maybe instead of selling the 4gb model on ebay when I upgrade, I'll just put it back in the box and save it untill its a rare mint condition antique.

    Those first gen 5gb ipods are worth bank now if you they are in mint condition with the box, etc...

    yeah that sounds like a waste of money, no offense, because you will end up having to buy a whole new one if they upgrade the space. i would go with the 8Gig now. thats what im doing

    That's b/c the iPod was the start of it. While this is the 1st iPhone, it's not going to be the same thing. I can't see the phone changing as much as the iPod has, mechanical to touch scroll, to color, to click, to video.

    its just that I think both the 4 and 8gb are really too small so the difference doesnt really mean anything to me, either way i cant put all the movies/tv shows on it that I want so I'll just go with the cheaper option now and toss some of my music on it then wait for a revised model with maybe 3G and way more storage for my media
