Apple today released a new, higher-priced version of the iPhone. The iPhone now sells in 8 GB and 16 GB variants, with pricing at $399 and $499, respectively.
The release has been rumored for months, and many expected this release to come out of last month’s Macworld Expo. Macworld saw no iPhone-specific announcements, other than a re-comittment to releasing a Software Development Kit (SDK) this month.
Apple also doubled the storage capacity of iPhone’s non-phone counterpart, iPod touch. iPod touch is also available for $499, but with 32 GB of total storage.
