Unlocked 32GB iPhone 3G could be on the horizon
There are a few whispers going around online, that Apple is all set to give the iPhone 3G a memory boost to a capacity of up to 32GB. If a iPhone 3G 32GB model will come this year, it will certainly cause a flurry of global coverage, and will help Apple to compete for market and mind share at a crucial time – the Christmas / end-of-year / holiday shopping season that all companies love and dearly want to take maximum advantage of. If true, the move to a 32GB Apple iPhone could be because the 8GB inventory is drying up, and thus leads to the speculation that it is going to be dropped. The timing for this seems just a tad odd on the heels of the Apple Let’s Rock iPod refresh, however when you take into consideration how Apple was forced to boost the iPhone Nano up to 16GB along with dropping the 4GB limited edition, it could well make sense.
The 32GB iPhone 3G could also be provided in the unlocked state, but we’ll just have to wait for any confirmation on these whispers.
