8GB iPhone 3GS coming soon? According to a pic sent in by a forum user, Apple may be ready to replace the aging iPhone 3G with an 8GB iPhone 3GS at the $99 price point.
First reported on the German apfeltalk forums, the user, .David, ordered a refurbished 8GB iPhone 3G and received the phone but in packaging suggesting that it was a 3GS model.

Says his original post (translated):

"Seems to be an iPhone 3G (back and no compass, FW) 3.0.1 on it. However, the packaging is clearly designed for an iPhone 3G [S] 8GB. Ordered was a refurbished 3G iPhone 8GB.

Vote: who have a refurbished iPhone 3G in a new packaging of the packaged iPhone 3G [S] 8GB, because the enhancement is clearly new. Which clearly indicates that the sale of the iPhone 3G [S] 8GB immediately imminent."

Give me 75 8GB 3GS
On a 20 a month (I dont care how long it lasts)
with 300 (or more)
and 100 minutes
with 1GB internet (or more)

Now that sounds more like a fair price not the stupid amounts people pay for at the momment!!!

I have an 8gb 3g now ... if I could get the better speed, which allows you to do more, for only 100$, then for sure I would upgrade.

It could just be a misprint...the part # is a regular 3G, so if they went to a 3GS, the part # would be different. However, they will eventually run out of older models, so a cheaper 3GS is inevitable.

Can you just buy a bigger SD card like every other phone, maybe a 16gb SD card... oh wait you cant change S$%T as its apple. DOH
