Apple Doubles Touch, iPhone Capacities

Posted by Eric March on February 5, 2008

Thirty-Two, Bay-bee!Rather than waiting until September’s keynote and the usual iPod refresh period, Apple has decided to go ahead and release an upgraded iPhone and iPod Touch with double the capacity — and an associated price hike, according to an announcement made today by Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of worldwide iPod and iPhone product marketing. Available immediately, the iPhone is now available in 8GB and 16GB capacities for $399 and $499 respectively, while the iPod Touch is now available in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB flavours for $299, $399 and $499 respectively.

The timing is is a bit unusual for Cupertino’s beloved fruit, winter being traditionally reserved for MacWorld and associated Mac and related peripheral line refreshes and introductions. Nevertheless, for those (like me) who griped and whined last September when Steve announced the puny capacities of these otherwise wonderful devices, larger capacity devices are now available far sooner than anticipated. This in itself is good news, but us early high-end adopters might also feel a little bit cheated, first by that whole $20 January Software Upgrade fiasco, and now by suddenly being faced with the idea of trading our 16 gig devices in for the huge storage boost.

Decisions, decisions.
