IMHO I think the 8GB and 16GB are going to be "it". The first time around Apple made a mistake by releasing the 4GB. The people wanted more, so they scrapped the 4GB. Then the 8GB was sufficient for most people. However, there was many people who wanted a bit more, so the 16GB satisfied them.
Well this is Apple's second time around and if there was enough people that wanted 32 GB, then thats what they would make. The fact of the matter is that they needed something with a price-point of $199 to compete with the other phones, so theres the 8GB and the 16GB at $299 satisfies most other people that need the extra room. There obviously isn't "enough" people needing the 32GB.
If there was such a high demand for more capacity, don't you think Apple would have scrapped the 8GB before the intro? 8GB is great for most people. I know about 20 people with iPhones and most of them are using from 2GB to 7GB, with a couple people at 11GB. IMHO; 8GB/16GB is more than adequate for most. And this coming from somebody that has 24.6GB in iTunes just in music alone.
This is just my opinion, so I'm sorry if I broke anybody's hopes and dreams.
