    If you think about the fact that they are charging $1000 for the 64gb ssd then $500 for a 32gb isn't all that bad considering you get an ipod/ wifi device with it. Obviously its still expensive, but thats one way to look at it...

    No one else can touch Apple's pricing on 32GB of flash memory.

    I have an 8GB iPhone and I just don't see me being able to fill up a 16GB.

    You could fill it with movies but why do you need to carry around that many movies at once? I think 8GB of music, TV shows, and movies is fine for right now.

    should I buy the iPhone now? I need a new phone...but I don't want to get screwed when they release a 3G iPhone out of nowhere in a few months or something.

    I highly doubt itll be anytime soon, probably ATLEAST 6-8months since they just refreshed them with a 16gb option. Software updates for now. Id just say get it and enjoy it.... no need to wait.

    nothing in stone, but don't expect an announcement until august at the absolute very earliest, and that means at the earliest a November launch. just buy the current one unless you need to teether

    this is a 6 month refresh, the next hand set will likely be in another 6 months (1 year from the launch of the original handset) and then another spec bump 6 months after that....ad infinitum.

    This update pretty much tells us what Apple's product launch cycle will be on the iPhone. Large companies (particularly Apple) have very regular launch cycles on most products, set by market demand.

    Big iPhone news of about two weeks ago was around a slowdown in orders to iPhone suppliers by Apple. Market demand probably went a little soft after the holidays and now the memory increase and pending SDK launch are probably Apple's plan to carry iPhone sales for the next 6 months while they get the next hardware version ready.

    This stuff really goes like clockwork, so there will be few surprises about any iPhone spec bump. A 3G version will have to get FCC approval and FCC filings are public info, so either the FCC will leak the existence of a 3G iPhone (doubtful) or it will be announced before it goes to the FCC. Either way, everyone will know that a 3G iPhone is coming at least 60+ days before it goes on sale.

    If you want an iPhone now, buy an iPhone now. Waiting for the "next great version" is futile because there is likely to be new hardware every 6 months. The only question you have to ask yourself is "does the iPhone currently do everything I want it to?"

    just get it right now.

    Take care of it, once the 3g comes out, sell it and buy a new one.

    if they had dropped the 8 gigger
    priced that 16 gig at the 8 gig price
    the 32 gig at the 16 price

    i'd be heading home right now with a 16 gig one... $400 is still too rich for my blood.
