    Since the new iPhone that was leaked in Vietnam was 16GB (at least that's what it said on the back), does that mean we'll see 16 GB and 32GB again, and no 64GB? Or does anyone think they might do something like this?:

    16GB 3GS: $99
    16GB G4: $199
    32GB G4: $299
    64GB G4: $399

    I think the 16 GB iPhone 4 in Vietnam was an early prototype than what Gizmodo showed.

    I think it will be 32GB and 64 GB for $199/299. At least I hope...

    I dont think there will be any 64 gb iphone 4g, there is shortage of 64 gb flash drives at the moment, And thats why i dont think apple will introduce a 64 gb version. Even on those leaked iphone pics we have not seen any 64 gb so...

    64 GB drives are too expensive right now. I think Apple might introduce it sometime during iPhone 4's lifetime, though, like the 16GB EDGE iPhone.

    Maybe it's a shortage because Apple bought them all! You never know.

    I can't see Apple releasing an iPhone without upgrading the memory. I think there will be three models; 16GB,32GB and 64GB.

    Past updates would make it seem like this time around we will see:

    32GB/$199
    64GB/$299

    I would expect this to happen, but apparently it a bit hazy at the moment.

    We just have to wait until June 7th to find out. Just 7 more days!

    The 3G was released without upgrading memory...

    iPhone 2G - 4GB, 8GB, 16GB (shortly after)
    iPhone 3G - 8GB, 16GB
    iPhone 3GS - 16GB, 32GB

    Yup, and i think thats the trend which will go on this time

    iPhone 2G - (4 GB), 8 GB & 16 GB
    iPhone 3G - 8 GB & 16 GB
    iPhone 3GS - 16 GB & 32 GB
    iPhone HD/4G 16 GB & 32 GB:)

    And i personally feel 16 gb is more then enough, for people who listen a lot of music 32 gb is fine. Who need 64 GB here?

    Am I the only one who doesn't remember a 16 GB iPhone 2G? I remember in the beginning there being a 4 and 8 GB iPhone 2G. They were sold for 500 and 600 dollars. Then, two months later they dropped the 4GB, because no one was buying it. The 8 GB iPhone 2G became the sole iPhone, and dropped to 400 dollars. It wasn't until June 2008 that a 16 GB iPhone 3G came out.

    At most there has only been 2 storage models on one iPhone model.

    They dropped the 4GB and replaced it with the 16GB IIRC.

    Don't expect Apple to upgrade the memory every year like 64GB, 128GB, and 256GB.

    Er. Apple does not use a SSD drives inside there phones. You know that right? It uses individual memory chips soldered directly into the mainboard.
