Apple on Tuesday 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.

?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.?



Both iPhone and iPod touch feature Apple?s Multi-Touch user interface and pioneering software that allows users to find and enjoy all their music, videos, photos and more with just a touch of their finger.



All iPhone and iPod touch models include the latest software enhancements announced last month including the ability to automatically find your location using the new Maps application; create Web Clips for your favorite websites; customize your home screen and watch movies from the new iTunes Movie Rentals.

    I'm very happy with these small updates. More memory is always nice to have. This was no doubt simply a matter of availability of higher density chips. 3G, on the other hand, is an entirely new hardware/software platform. That might take a while.

    As much as I love apple I wish they would roll out these products to all the countries at the same time.



    In the UK we have no update as of today! But what do I care my iPhone is as good as new and I am not going to upgrade for at least a year!

    How did they fast track this through FFC testing without anyone getting word out?

    Actually the 16gb phone is in the UK now - Applestore Glasgow has them in stock as well. As the new touch and a couple of MacBookAirs ... damn are they gorgeous in the flesh ;-)

    The register is reporting that they're available today in the UK...

    $500 for 32GB? I don't think so.



    I'll take an 8 GB. All I want is the internet and mail.

    £329 (inc VAT) for the 16GB iPhone here in the UK. That's $650. Ouch!



    To contrast, on O2's homepage today they're advertising the Black 8GB N95 for free.



    Macworld UK is reporting Duffy doing a gig on the 15th Feb in the Regent Street store. I wonder if that corresponds with some other (more interesting) product updates?

    Why would they have to go through the FFC or FCC or whatever for just a simple memory upgrade. It's not like they're creating a whole new product.
