Vodafone Product Description Suggests iPhone 5 to Come in 16GB and 32GB Flavors
Apparently U.K carrier Vodafone has outed the storage capacity of both versions of the upcoming iPhone 5 in the product description of their Vodafone Sure Signal network signal booster earlier today before amending the description and removing all signs of the iPhone 5.
In the product's description above, captured by AppleInsider
, it lists all the phones compatible with the signal booster. The usual suspects are there including all the currently available iPhone iterations. However, the iPhone 5 32GB black and white models, as well as the 16GB black and white models are listed as compatible with the signal extender. We're not sure exactly what this means.
This could be viewed as confirmation of the upcoming iPhone 5 capacities and colors, or it could simply be viewed as a typo, or an educated guess implemented to drive traffic to Vodafone's product page. However, if this is accurate, and Vodafone has in fact tested these models with their signal booster, it means Apple would forgo releasing a 64GB version of their newest iPhone once again. But, seeing as Vodafone removed the iPhone 5 from the list of compatible phones it could be interpreted as the company being a little antsy.
The added 32GB of storage would help those with expansive iTunes libraries carry all their music with them, and allow those who can't say no to free applications access to every lite version of Angry Birds at all times. One has to wonder though, how useful will such a high capacity device be once iCloud is launched? With access to your iTunes Library in its entirety at all times, the extra space almost seems wasteful, but at the same time the choice to splurge and utilize the extra GBs would be a refreshing change. That's not to say many individuals are in dire need of extra space on their iPhones.
MMi users, would you purchase a 64GB iPhone 5 if it were released? How many of you need the added space?
