This is how it always goes... A company comes out with an item, the public tests it out... The company hears feedback from it and fixes the problems and bugs with it, then at a later date the company then turns around an makes a version more stable and better. Thats how most gaming systems go atleast.

I didn't pay for my iPhone I won it from a radio contest the week before it cam out but if they come out with a next one I think they should have every one bring they old one in as long as its in great condition and just pay the difference cause if a 8gig cost $650 after tax(ps3 price) how much a 20 gig will cost it will seriously cost an arm and a leg just do the math

So I was browsing last night and came across an article that mentionned that TheStreet.com (financial info portal) announced that Apple is gonna come out with a 20GB iPhone by the end of the year. Nobody else confirmed this information.
Knowing Apple, it's all speculation. However, that's the price we pay sometimes for being early adopters.

The Street.com is full of anti-Apple, market manipulating crap. Don't believe it. Apple never makes new products obsolete, and they wouldn't in this case either.

Cramers a moron.

I actually wouldn't mind too much if they released a larger iPhone, as long as I didn't have to continue to refresh my 2 years contract and pay the activation fee every single time. Considering there isn't a discount w/the iPhone if you purchase it with or without the 2 year contract, Apple would be smart if they did that.

Late Adopters

So I was browsing last night and came across an article that mentionned that TheStreet.com (financial info portal) announced that Apple is gonna come out with a 20GB iPhone by the end of the year. Nobody else confirmed this information.

I personally doubt this is going to happen, but if it does, I am going to be EXTREMELY pissed at Apple. I (we) are stuck with a 8GB iPhone and late adopters will have all the benefits of the iPhone without the drawbacks? That is not fair.

I don't want to be a prick here, but I hope Apple is not gonna come out with such a huge memory capacity for the next 2 years because if they do, I will regret my purchase.

Has anyone heard about that?

I think that it is always unwise to purchase a new electronic device right when it is released. There are always bugs and later on they almost always add more features. So for you early adopters if there is a new iPhone with more hardware upgrades by the end of the year, you can't blame anyone but yourselves. Hopefully Apple will add more features via firmware updates.

My opinion is that they won't come out with that quite yet. I plan on getting the phone around the end of the year. That would be awesome if a 20GB is available by then.

Guess we'll see.

I agree With you Impaler. Thats the price we pay for anything thats new on the market.

Craigslist all the way!

If Apple does come up with and upgrade to 20gigs I'm in! I can already feel the excitement. And judging by how people are still getting all goo goo eyed when I pull out my iPhone I don't think there will be a problem putting it up on Craigslist for resale.

Right, right.....

Dude are you f*cking kidding me? A) Juding by what Apple has done with the iPod I highly doubt they will do that with the (much more expensive/2-year contract) iPhone. B) And you are saying that if they release a slightly better, more memory version of iPhone within a year, it will become "obsolete"? Dude when I whip this baby out in public (let alone the Helio store) everybody around me can help but stop and look/ask. C) Btw they might offer an exchange program so that if you already have an iPhone you can just extend your contract with At&t and they will exchange your current one with a new one over the mail (Maybe for a bit more money). That would keep both them and At&t happy if they can work out the issue of somebody buying an old, crappy, beaten up iPhone from a friend or eBay for 300$ then getting a brand new one for virtually nothing. That would be an interesting concept, now wouldn't it? I'm going to post a thread about that!

It kinda sucks switching out dvds, but Id probably rather honestly stick with my 8gig cause it forces me to put only the things I really want on it. Its like the 'get rid of your huge wallet with lots of businesss cards you'll never need kinda thing.' Plus a 20 gig will be substantially larger in size.

Such is the price of being an early adpoter, if the rumor is even true. Besides, more memory will most likely make an expensive toy even more expensive.

Honestly, I wouldn't be at all upset if they did release a version with more memory. With 112 songs already loaded, I still have 5 gigs of space left. That's more than enough to get me through a few days.
Exactly. Problem with pretty much all tech devices is that as soon as you get it out of the box, it is out of date as a newer model is out and has more/better features. You can either keep waiting, and waiting and waiting until the perfect device comes along (see problem #1) or be happy with your purchase if it does what you want and live with having an 'old outdated' device or just keep buying the latest and greatest. Nothing you can do and not any reason to complain. Such is the issue with high tech devices.
