Apple doubles max storage for iPod Touch and iPhone

Everyone knows that the iPhone and iPod touch use flash memory, everyone also likely knows that such memory is quite expensive. So, it comes at no surprise that doubling said flash storage in the iPhone and iPod Touch would be a pricey venture, no?

Well, really, its not, they added 8GB of storage to the iPhone for a new 16GB iPhone, and they added 16GB of storage to the iPod Touch for a 32GB iPod Touch. For iPhone users, they are probably looking at it as they are finally getting the same amount of storage the iPod Touch had.

For iPod Touch users, they are looking at it as they finally have a 30GB+ storage option like they used to have with their 30GB iPod Classics. Both the 16GB iPhone and the 32GB iPod Touch will be going for $499 each and they are both available now from the Apple Store online.
