Apple video shows 80GB iPhone: slip up or proof of massive future storage upgrade?

Watch the iPhone Activation & Sync video on

After the video’s host selects all his playlists, Music, Vidos, Podcasts, etc and Syncs his phone he shows the Used and Available Space on the iPhone which shows 80GB of iPhone storage space. The host states, “This bar at the bottom [of iTunes] shows you how much room you have left on you iPhone…”

Is this is a simple mistake or is there an 80GB iPhone lurking about deep inside Apple?

  1. Steve, ever the master showman!! Why do I think that this was planned??? LOL ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”grin” style=”border:0;” />


    MDN word develop as in Lets see what develop s.

  2. “80GB would mean a hard-drive based iPhone. I doubt we’ll see one of those”

    Exactly, unless they’ve got some VooDoo flash memory that we don’t know about. And a HD based iPhone would never get the kind of battery life they’re talking about. If this is a mistake they’d better damn well fix it before the word gets out.

  3. I think that someone inadvertantly put in a shot of an iPod screen instead of the iPhone screen. It’s a mistake for which someone’s head may roll since it could potentially cannibalize the market for the current offerings.
