Well they use flash memory not a hard drive so i dont think you would be able to upgrade the hardware.

Thanks. That's a real shame, though.
I suppose some one very knowledgeable in electronics might be able to pull it off once there are new flash memory chips more dense in information than what apple has in the iPhone currently.

I'm sure its very possible. The inside of the iPhone will probably look exactly the same as the chips will probably have to be very close to the same size. However, Apple will 99.9999% probably not sponsor an authorized upgrade. If you have it done it will void your warranty.

I think you can by changing the logic board where the flash memory is!!! from 8gb to 16gb.
