    i want and NEED a 64GB model so I can put my entire iTunes music library of 29GB on there and ditch my iPod Classic! Come on Steve hook us up!!!
    Honestly after we found out that prototype was 16GB I really doubt we'll see a 64GB version this year. It's because of the physical space limitations. Also, Apple has zero competition in the smartphone market for capacity.

    DoubleM, I used several HD camcorders with 4GB SD cards, and I honestly never found myself running out. 32GB is plenty.

    I don't think Apple will go to a $399 price point. It's too expensive. There's no room to put more storage in the phone though, so we may have to wait another year for the chip tech to increase enough for 64GB iPhones... Also, there's ZERO industry pressure on the iPhone in terms of internal memory.. Seriously.
    Totally agreed.. I have the 16GB 3G and it's half full - never even been close to
    fully utilised. If Vodafone Oz gives me an upgrade option, 32GB will be more than
    enough.

    yeah, had a 16GB 3G, then a 16GB 3GS. I've never really been more than half full. I only have about 7GB of music so it's not a huge issue for me.

    The space argument won't matter. Toshiba has developed the chip.

    Now whether Apple puts it in the device is an entirely different story. Personally, I hope they do. It will give me proper justification to pick one up because I will be able to dump my iPod classic. My iTunes library is just too big to fit on a 32GB iPhone.

    Whether or not it exists there are other factors that go into the decision, such as hardware specifics in terms of quality in important areas and production costs. The fact that we've seen a 16GB model that appears to be finished (no screws on the bottom) tells me that we might be stuck with 16/32 again.

    As far as price points go, I was really surprised when the new iPhone prototype leak pics came out with the back labeled "16 GB". I really thought they'd increase memory. So maybe in an effort to stick with their price points they'll have 16GB at 199, 32GB at 299 and then maybe 64GB at 399? I dunno, but I hope so, 32GB isn't gonna be enough for me if they have HD video recording. I'll blow through 32 GB pretty quick.
    Note, PROTOTYPE! It will be 32GB and 64GB. I can guarantee this. I have over 25GB of music alone on my phone, therefore I NEED more than 32GB, my current 3GS has 1GB free at best.

    Just because you want it doesn't mean it's guaranteed. Haha..

    I don't know if chip technology is advanced and cheap enough for Apple to upgrade capacity this year.
