  • 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?

      For those of you who are running out of space because of music, look up Subsonic. You install the program on your PC and it acts as a music server. They have an app in the app store for it. If you don't have a static IP address, it's 10 euros for a custom URL name (______.subsonic.org). I can't live without this app. It also caches songs if you want it to for listening offline. I for one can't fit most of my music on a 32GB iPhone let alone a 64GB one so this app is a must for me.

      Just thought I'd share the info for those of you that need it.

      -At least a 4.3 inch display if not bigger would be nice.

      -Better battery life

      - 720p front facing camera

      -Different color beside black & white (optional)

      -Louder speaker

      They should at least do half
      1080p video capture/playback
      4.3" screen
      4g support

      Sounds like you want a iPhone knockoff.

      Samsung Galaxy S II ?

      I'm seriously tired of waiting for the i5. If At&t's SGS2 gets released first that's what I will be buying.

      IMO it has the perfect screen size in 4'3". 4G Support (21Mbps HSPA+), can actually load my Torrented movies/shows without having to convert them. Expandable memory and Netflix support. I also hear the battery life is great. It's rated at 8 hours of talk time on 3G according to GSM Arena.

      Being able to store things on the "cloud" (the Internet), is fine and dandy, but it doesn't negate the need for local storage at all. Always having an Internet connection (or one that's fast enough( is not always guaranteed, especially if you travel a lot. Apps also need to be installed locally and thus consume storage space. I also can't imagine carriers tolerating every user streaming music (and video) for very long if this actually becomes a norm; I honestly would prefer to keep media local, otherwise how would one listen or watch on a plane, for instance? Or on an subterranean train? Or anywhere else without access to any connectivity?

      No, its not a knock off, Apple sooner or later will have to implement all these features eventually. I'm just stating the features I want the new iPhone 5 to have otherwise I won't obtain it. If Apple does not get any of the features I just listed above, then there is no hope for apple.

      I was being sarcastic about it being a knockoff. With all the suits Apple has filed against Sammy.

      Buy seriously if the iPhone 5 doesn't have a bigger screen and 4G connectivity. I'm done with them. Verizon is launching their 4G LTE in a town that's 30 minutes from me and Sprint has Wi-Max in some parts of my town and fully blanket over another one. Hell even T-Mobile launched their 42MBps HsPa+ in my town. Att need to push 4g here and apple needs to also push a 4g device.

      Everyone that doesn't have a iPhone has either a HTC evo4g or a LTE android device from Verizon. If Verizon still offered unlimited I might have switch.
