Apple Adds Larger Capacity iPhone, iPod Touch

Since the 16 GB iPod Touch was announced in September we all knew it was only a matter of time until Apple slapped that 16 GB into its larger brother.   Here we go, and still more.

Apple® today added new models of the iPhone™ and iPod® touch which have double the memory, doubling the amount of music, photos and videos that customers can carry with them wherever they go. The revolutionary iPhone now comes in a new 16GB model for $499, joining the 8GB model for $399. iPod touch now comes in a 32GB model for $499, joining the 16GB model for $399 and the 8GB model for $299.

“For some users, there’s never enough memory,” said Greg Joswiak, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide iPod and iPhone Product Marketing. “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.”

Wait, you think this is enough memory to satisfy us!?  These are available immediately - though stores may not have them in stock yet.  About that 32 GB iPhone - perhaps it's waiting for 3G?
