    I am a first time poster (so go easy on me), but long time reader. I am joining the iphone crowd soon. I am not going to wait until June for the "possible" upgraded phone, as I agree with many posters in that I could always be waiting for the latest and greatest.
    My question is, should I wait a few more weeks for the 1st week of February to pass for a "possible" 32gb phone, or just purchase now? I've waited a while so a few more weeks isn't going to kill me, but I haven't really heard that much about a storage bump in February (like there was last year) after the false MacWorld rumors. Thanks!

    We know nothing. There are no 32GB NAND chips yet.

    So I should just wait a few weeks, and then we will know (or not know still) about the 32gb iphone, or just buy now?? If I am going to wait, I will until about about February 10th (because I've learned of Apple's tendancy towards Tuesday announcements).

    why would february be significant for the iPhone?
    If 16GB isn't enough for you, wait.
    If 16GB is enough, buy and enjoy the phone.
    If Apple doesn't release a new phone on February 10th don't you think you'll want to wait March 10th? that's a Tuesday as well. No one really knows. June/July sounds good, either way there's a really good chance we'll see a storage bump in 2009, probably no other hardware changes until 2010.

    The significance of February is that's when the storage was bumped last year to 16gb. I agree with you that I could be waiting for a long time, which I am not going to do. I will buy in February at the latest.

    Yes there will be a 32GB in February. Reason I belive this to be so is because I just bought a 16GB last week.

    Ahh - that's exactly why I'm hesitant to buy right now!! I'm usually the person that happens to. Good luck!

    There is no Feb 29th this year. ;)

    But as others have said, we have no idea when a 32GB iPhone is coming. It could be in February, July, or 2010. It is all speculation on our part.

    Yes there are, and there have been for MONTHS. I believe Intel, Samsung and Toshiba all make 32GB chips.

    me too, I just spoke to Steve Jobs and he says he will be shipping 32GB iPhones himself to the good kids on this forum on February 29th, just make sure you leave some cookies and a glass of milk for him

    God I hope so!

    What makes this wait particularly harsh is that there have been zero recent rumours. I suppose all the rumour mills have been focusing on SJ instead of product recently.

    Every day is a trial. (And I really mean that - I have a Palm Treo 750 atm. :( )

    Apple has a 30 day return policy. You can buy now and return it in February (well, most of February anyway) if they release a new model and/or change the pricing.

    32 GB NAND Flash chips are expected to begin production in late Jan 2009 (this month); however, how fast will Apple adopt these? No one knows that one.

    "Adopting" suggests that there is something more than "buying and installing" on the motherboard. Is this the case, or does it just come down to production runs and pricing strategy?

    By adopting I mean, actually start producing test units in Apple HQ and releasing the new iPhone if all tests are successful.

    Given the current economy, I don't know if there is demand for another, even higher priced, iPhone 3G. I'm hoping they forgo releasing the 32gb 3G iPhone and make the next iPhone 16 / 32.

    I guess iPhone will soon have 32gigs internal mem update. IPhone's internal mem upgrades have been roughly in line with the internal mem upgrades of other makers' phones. When 2G iPhone had 8gigs, so did N95 8GB and when 3G had 16 gigs, so did N96 (+sd slot). N97 is shipping 31.3 with 32GB internal + sd slot, so I think once again there will be equal storage space in iPhone (well almost, because N97 has up to 16GB and later 32GB microSDHC-> total 48GB or 64GB).
