    No brainer...16gb...no one has EVER gone wrong by getting all the memory they can on any device (phone, laptop, desktop, server, you name it). Between the AppStore and your iTunes library, you'll be screaming for 32gb by this time next year (if not by Christmas).

    The only reason I'm getting a 16GB is because 32GB is not an option!

    I feel the same, if there was a 32GB option then i'll be all over that, but i'll have to settle for the 16GB black.

    The new iPhone is for my wife, who is not exactly a power user or has fully embraced the mobile technology. So it will just be a 8GB, which is still leaps and bounds an upgrade over her 4 year old feature phone.

    16gb - with a few gbs of music and videos, it'll fill up fast.

    I'm getting a 16GB for myself (wishing it was a 32GB) and an 8GB for my wife.

    16GB but i dont plan on putting movies on there (i know lame) but it will hold all 14GB of my music, which means no picking and choosing. I don't really watch movies on the go anyway come to think of it, i'll just use youtube.

    Aloha everyone,

    My wife is wavering a bit, fully knowing that I seek only to satisfy my want (not need, as I currently enjoy a 1st gen 8GB iPhone ), and changed from a definite "NO" to a somewhat hesitant "can you wait?" I failed to ask her "wait for what?", thinking that she may actually change her mind by Friday.

    That being said, assuming that I actually get the OK to purchase the 3g iPhone on Friday, I'm going for the white 16GB model. The first two Apple products I bought (a 5th gen iPod w/Video and Core Duo 20" iMac - my primary Mac) are both white, so I don't see any need to go with the black version. I also don't care what other people think about me - it's not as if their opinion will change me in any way, and if they know me, they'll know that I'm not a pretentious person. I just like the way the white model looks.

    I can't believe Apple is holding out on the 32GB. They already make a 32GB touch, they can just simply put the 32GB chip in the iPhone 3G. Damn you Apple marketing.

    I don't think it's a marketing issue, does anyone else? I always assumed it was an engineering issue. They can fit the 32 GB in the Touch because they don't have to cram all of the phone and camera stuff in there. Thoughts?

    I read somewhere that the Touch has the equivalent of two memory slots (compared to the iPhone) which is in line with the room issue. Still, I'm one for the iPhone 3g Pro and hope they skip 32gb altogether and go to 64gb.

    8GB for sure, saving all the money I can for the trip to go get it. I'll have to drive at least 100 miles. Gas is expensive. And besides that I don't have a huge music collection. I have less than 3GB total right now, and that includes a video podcast with 27 episodes.

    You can look at the iTunes movie store for an idea. At a glance, it looks like most are a little bit over 1GB. I'm not sure about movies from other places, I don't download them.

    I have to definitely go with a 16GB. Coming from my 32GB Touch that I plan on leaving at home from now on, I definitely want to fit as much of my music and videos as possible. And with the launch of the App store, I know I'm gonna need all the space I can get. I'm trying to decide how much my ''allowance" should be for the App store.

    That one is tripping me up too. How should I know how much memory my apps will take up? My current logic is that the Applications folder on my computer is a little over 2GB, which is a crazy overestimate for the iPhone. Assuming I had that many apps on an 8GB iPhone it would leave me 5-6GB. I could live with that much free space on my iPhone, seeing how I have a small music and video collection.

    from what i know the iPod touch uses 2 8GB chips to make a 16GB and the iPhone uses one 16GB chip . . . i think what ever company is working on making a 32GB stick of flash and apple is waiting for that because there's already limited space in the iPhone . . . so once they have a single stick of 32GB flash apple will have it.

    Don't quote me on that . . . but i think i remember hearing it somewhere.
