    IFixit.com just post the tear down for the ipod touch.
    The 8GB uses 2 4GB flash chips...and i guess the 16 uses 2 8GB chips since the space is there.
    But in the iphone there is only room for 1 flash chip unless they make it thicker.
    So i guess no 16 GB iphone for a while...at least till prices of those flash chips come down.
    What are other peoples thoughts

    I believe Samsung is sampling it's 16GB NAND Flash chip, but it's not in production until later this year. I would think that part would make it into an iPhone at some point.

    Please don't call them "drives". They're just memory chips.

    As someone just mentioned about 16GB:

    16GB chip
