iPhone 4G Storage: What’s enough without expansion?

By Updated on

As we draw ever closer to WWDC 2010 and Apple’s impending announcement of the iPhone 4G, speculation is starting to mount on what type of memory solution Apple will offer for the handset.

Rather than offer the tradition 8GB-32GB flash memory options for the iPhone 4G, many users feel that Apple need to release a 64GB version of the device – or better yet, finally allow removable storage for the phone.

If you asked users what would they prefer: 64GB or MicroSD support, most would prefer the latter, since it will allow them to easy back up documents and media files on multiple SD cards for easy storage and convenience.

What do you think Apple will do with regards to memory for the iPhone 4G? Will they stick with their traditional flash memory or explore the possibilities of card support for the device?

Give us your thoughts on this debate.

    what debate? There is no debate. There is no reason to think that Apple will change their strategy here.

    Apple will not use an external device because they would loose control over the iPhone. By that I mean viruses could be introduced or some other issues. Increasing the internal storage would be good enough for me.

    Apple's Storage is larger than I think all Smartphones right now. (probably an exception or two)

    It doesn't fit into their iTunes/App Store purchasing system. (say sharing movies on multiple devices without syncing them through the iTunes account means a loss of some revenue)

    It goes against their future goal of having a cloud system where you can download everything and transfer everything wirelessly.

    I'd prefer 64Gb (or even better 128Gb), I can back up documents to mobileme from anywhere and gain access to files from almost any internet connected device.

    That is why I haven't looked into an ipone yet been waiting for more memory weather internal or external. A 32gb isn't big enough I have almost that now in my itunes library!
