    iphone 16gb
    with the new ipod touch out with a 16gb option, do you think the iphone will soon come with an optional 16gb?

    somehow, i think it wont make sense for apple to do so because otherwise, everyone would go straight for the iphone.

    So? How does that hurt Apple? And besides, I sure wouldn't if it cost more and I'm not interested in AT&T.

    im just thinking that since the iphone provides every characteristic the ipod touch does and more, no one would choose the ipod touch unless the iphone was significantly more expensive. ie. 100 bucks more expensive maybe?

    Well, it is $100 more but really doesn't do much more than have the cellphone part. It's bigger, too. Plus, if you're in contract with someone else, there's the $200 cancellation fee. Or, if AT&T is poor in your area, etc.

    It's all about timing. Apple still wants to sell as many 8GB iPhones as possible before unveiling as 16GB version. Otherwise the 8GB iPhone will suffer the fate of the 4GB version.

    It's not as much about what the people want, it's about what the people want and then only giving it to them when it's most profitable. That's business.

    It's funny to see how Apple prices memory differences. For example, with the iPhone the only difference between the two was 4GB of flash memory. For that, you paid $100 more. But now we see that they are only charging $50 more for that same memory boost in the iPod Nano. Interesting, huh? I guess we can see why Apple decided to ditch the 4GB iPhone: 1. it's wasn't selling as well and 2. the 8GB is much more profitable, even considering the price drops, which still have a $100 difference.

    Interesting, but at the same time, they're very different products in very different price ranges. So I'm sure apple had to limit the price increase to keep the 8GB nano competitive.

    The iPhone has MUCH more than just a cellphone ahead of the Touch.

    Let me count the ways:

    CELLPHONE
    CAMERA
    EMAIL

    Maps Widget
    Stocks Widget
    Weather Widget
    Notes Widget
    Internal SPEAKER
    Internal MIC
    BLUETOOTH


    I was originally planning on getting the new iPod (Touch) IF it had wifi... but to me, the release really just sold me on the iPhone.

    Now... I just need to get out of my Sprint contract. I also need to get over the lack of "3G" ... or wait for 2.0

    Well, the cellphone and camera I can see making a tangible difference. The email and widgets will probably be a non-issue in the near future, aside from the fact that you can do all of that in safari. And there's not much point to me to have bluetooth/mic/speaker in a phone-less ipod. Maybe to take voice notes I guess.

    For me... Voice notes would be nice.. How about listening to music in the office without the earbuds... bluetooth... the possibility of listening to music through bluetooth headphones... send files... sync?

    Doubt the masses care about bluetooth headphones or synching over bluetooth. Listening to music via internal speaker? No thanks. I got speakers in the office for that.

    Scroll down...

    Update 2: Ah, sorry to bum y'all out, we just heard that Apple didn't actually include Bluetooth in the touch, meaning the screen shown above isn't entirely accurate. We'll let you know if we hear more.
    Having Bluetooth appear would be a plus... BUT I don't see any Speakers, Mic's, Camera, etc. "hidden" in any of the iPod Touch pictures released by Apple.

    Don't get me wrong... I like the Touch, but for an extra $100, to have a Cellphone, Camera, Bluetooth (for sure), Mail, etc... My vote has to go to the iPhone.

    I'm sure a 16gb/3G iPhone is imminent, it's just a matter of time.
