Hey guys, I'm a long time reader, first time poster. Just recently the rumor is 3 million iPhones at launch. What no one has said yet is how many of each model will there be? Do you think more people will buy the 4 gig or spend an extra $100 for twice the memory? Do you think Apple will ship more of the 8 gig? Which one do you plan on getting?

I'm undecided or don't care. Not sure which, but neither are a poll option. :)
Sorry, didn't think people wouldn't have an opinion. :laugh2: But back to my other question...what do you think the percentages will be that Apple ships?

I would guess 70/30 in favor of the 4G due to the price point.

i would say more in favor of the 8gig because more people want them (jsut take a look at the poll results). at the ps3 launch they shipped more 60g than 20g because that is the one people wanted most. besides they know that the people who don't have a choice when there is only one type left, so if the 8gig is the only one left theyd buy it

For me it is the 8GB version or nothing. If all they have available is the 4GB, I will have to walk away.
Yep. Same here. Ideally they'd have even bigger sizes available, or offer the option of removable flash media of some flavor so that we could upgrade as we go, but given the alternatives I have to go with 8.

Movies take up a lot of space! :)

welcome, in my opinion in a businesss transaction way, they will ship more 8gb because the demand would be more
