iPhone, iPod Touch get supersized

It’s all about the chips.

iPhone, iPod Touch get supersizedApple today rolled out new configurations of the iPhone and iPod Touch, doubling the storage capacity of previous models. The iPhone is now available in a 16GB model ($499), with the iPod Touch topping out at 32GB ($499). Previous iPod Touch models are still available — 8GB ($299) and 16GB ($399) — as is the original 8GB iPhone ($399).

For the time being at least, the new higher capacity iPhone is available in the U.S.-only, whereas the new iPod Touch models are shipping worldwide.

Apple’s Greg Joswiak, vice president of Worldwide iPod and iPhone Product Marketing, is quoted in the press release saying: “For some users, there’s never enough memory. Now people can enjoy even more of their music, photos and videos on the most revolutionary mobile phone and best Wi-Fi mobile device in the world.”

That’s right, the iPod Touch is now officially marketed as the ‘best Wi-Fi mobile device in the world’. Bring on those sanctioned third-party apps already.
