This is rather belated news, but I figured it was worth posting anyways. Apple has recently unveiled larger capacity versions of the iTouch and iPhone. The iTouch, originally only available in 8 gig and 16 gig versions, now boasts a whopping 32 gig version with a $500 pricetag.

The iPhone began with 4 gig and 8 gig versions. Then they ditched the 4 gig model quicker than you could blink, lowered the pricetag, and released the 8 gig and 16 gig iTouch. Now they're following suit with a 16 gig iPhone with the same pricetag of the new 32 gig iTouch: $500.

This news also comes with the announcement of their SDK, which will allow a limited number of developers accepted into their program to pay $99 for an SDK Kit to begin developing native apps. Aside from the much-anticipated native applications, other features that came as a result of firmware updates to an already-launched device include Microsoft Exchange support, a GPS capability for their maps, and an iTunes store on-the-go.

While pursuing a Computer Science degree, I founded DaniWeb.com, an online community for developers and IT professionals. I coded the backend platform from the ground up and I also do all of the advertising sales and SEO. I'm a super-geeky programmer with a passion for Internet marketing.

They have to bring something extra so people will pay for it. This is because other companies behind mobile development are introducing their devices with similar storage capacity. Example is lates product line of SonyEricsson W960 or W980, Nokia N81 or N95 (all 8GB) or Nokia N96(16GB) plus many others...

I'm not sure whether it's the company just re-allocating stock; but there is a recall coming up for the touch - just the 16GB I think.

Dazza :cool:
