The Apple website has just winked back into existance and on it is the new 16GB iPhone.

16GB iPhone now available Â… oh, and a 32GB iPod touchApart from the new increased capacity, nothing is changed.  The 16GB iPhone retails for $499 while the 8GB model sells for $399.

For those of you expecting the iPhone to support 3G or have a GPS or some other cool new feature, you can put your credit cards away ... for now.  Same goes for those waiting for a MacBook Pro upgrade.

Also added to the line up is a 32GB iPod touch.  This also retails for $499.

Hmmm, 32GB iPod touch ... tempting.

Thoughts?

  • 32GB iPod Touch

    That's half the memory of a flash memory Air. And, a lot thinner, lighter, and cheaper. Very tempting indeed! And SDK's to come to add functionality.

  • A 32GB iPod touch is exactly what I would want

    But at half the price it's listed at. So I'll keep waiting for something better.

    • I'll bet you NEVER buy one!!

      But it's real fun to post pointless messages like yours, isn't it? Did you feel the
      POWER?

  • tempting indeed

    30gb really is a sweet spot for me. However, I'll wait until it's $200 thank you very much

    • You will wait forever!

      But then, we all know that, don't we. You are a wait-and-seer. I'll bet you wake up in
      the morning and go "hmm, what will I buy for $200 today? Oh, not a 32Gb iPod
      touch!"

    • $299 maybe, though $399's a more likely drop

      $200's not an Apple price for anything outside of a bottom-end Nano.

      I've got a 16 GB iTouch myself, and even sprung for the $19.95 extra apps so I could get a memo feature. I have to admit, I sobbed bitter tears when I saw the ad for the 32 GB model - just six weeks after the holidays when I got mine! Steve Jobs - why did you Leo me?!?!?!?!?

      It's a great media player with a few PDAish features thanks to the extra apps, though I'm waiting w/bated breath for the apps from the SDK to see if I can get more PDA functionality. The iTouch is close to what I kept hoping the Treo would become now, but missing a few essential features (phone aside, of course).

    32G, 3G and GPS would make all worth while for me.

    • Except you could have all that now elsewhere

      and guess what? YOU DON'T! So why bother posting such drool?

    You know what I think? I think "existence" is spelled e-xi-s-t-e-n-c-e. Hard to argue with that.

  • Wow, almost as good as an Archos!!

    For the same price as the 32GB iPod, you could buy a 160GB Archos. Sure, the iPod has half the resolution, a smaller screen, 1/5th the storage space, and 1/10th the codec support but other than that, it's the best portable media player EVER!!! :)

    • Caution....

      Just don't become afflicted with Archos Option-itis.

    • And a Hard Drive with the chance to fail

      I don't know about you, but having to reload a MP3 Player with 160GB again, might just kill a few hours.

      Especially on my USB 1.1 systems.

      • Ummm... it's a 32GB flash drive

        no hard drive in there

        • Oops, nevermind...

          thought you were talking about the iPod... my bad

      • Was that tongue in cheek?

        Refuting that the smaller capacity of the iTouch is better than the other because it takes less time to load less content?

    • That thing is huge.

      Might as well take your laptop with you.
      If you can't fit it in your pocket, its not even in the market.
      Sorry Charlie.

      • Huge as in 10% larger?

        12cmx8 instead of 11x6.5?

        About the only way to make the Archos smaller is to make a foldable screen or reduce the screen size from 4.3 inches to 3.5 inches.

        Comparing to the iPhone is not valid, the Archos is not a phone, but if you want a WiFi multimedia player, it is (price/feature) wise something you want to look at.

        • Get 10% larger yourself and try putting on your

          current pair of jeans...:P

          Turns out that it's also true in portability "Size does matter"

          • Off Topic, but neither work in jeans.

            Unless they are the super baggy type (way too old to be cool doing that), even my Meizu (1/2 the size of an itouch) isn't going in my pocket, too easy to break the screen.

            Regardless, sorry I brought it up in the first place, the everyone go with the iTouch.

        • Huge as in It may not fit in your pocket.

          For a portable media player 10% larger is a big deal.
          Plus it's more than twice as heavy.

          And to spin numbers completely out of control.. ;)

          Archos 160 4.8"W x 3.2"H x .75"D = [b]11.5 cu. in.[/b]
          iPod Touch 4.3"H x 2.4"W x .31"D = [b]3.2 cu. in. [/b]

          10% larger now is revealed to be 360% larger all around.
