Why did they make the IP4 only 8gb?

    Because they had to downgrade their old model because it would outsell the new model. If they kept the IP4 at 16gb and sold it for 150$, a lot of people would buy it over a 4S.

    On the other hand you will see tons of used 16GB and 32GB iPhone 4 models for sale on eBay soon that you will be able to buy even cheaper.

    Apple's genius way of making the consumer spend more money than they actually should on the newest model over the old model.

    im sure the iPhone 4 will sell like hot cakes at the $99 price tag and outsell the iPhone 4S!!

    I had friends waiting for the "iPohne 5", but since its only a 4S, they are going with the iPhone 4
