obviously i am new, and looking into an iPhone. i have been excited to get one since i first found out about it. now i am not sure if i should wait or i should go out now and go get one. I also heard 16gb is better in some way beside memory.. or is the same? thanks in advance,

16GB is the same with more memory - supposedly. I've got a 16GB one. Never had an 8 or 4.

EDIT: Go out and get one. I was considering waiting, but I love mine. Only had it since yesterday.

There is no difference in the 16gb except memory. It could be awhile before V2 is released. I even read a rumor that it might be early next year before it is brought out. The ultimate decision is yours to make, but I know how much fun I have had with mine, so I would say go for it.

The only time memory could become a factor is after the the SDK is released. There is no indication how memory intensive some applications could become.

Did I miss something here.:) Some people can fill up 16 gigs with music and movies real quick. There are a lot of factors where memory can make a difference. People gave up their 8gb for the 16gb because they needed more space.
