IPhone 4 8GB and 4S 16/32/64 GB Appear On German Mobile Service Site And A Brazilian Connection – Reports
ifun: iPhone iphone ticker.de — a German online magazine that says it has some 7.620 articles focused on the the iPhone, reports that two new iPhone models are showing up on the Vodafone service carrier site October 03: an iPhone 4S in data storage capacities of 16 GB, 32 GB, and 64 GB and iPhone 4 with 8 GB
Two interpretation possibilities are offered by the magazine.: Either a over-motivated Web programmer a little too much put here in things, or Vodafone Germany is preparing behind the scenes for both new iPhone models: an iPhone 4 with 8 GB of memory otherwise based on current models, and in addition a iPhone 4S with the memory options of 16, 32 and 64 GB, both devices alternatively in white or black.
A GigaOM take on this story is also being reported by the New York Times.
Moving along, Gizmodo Brazil is reporting that a new, lower-priced made in Brazil iPhone is ready. According to their sources, new Brazilian Foxconn plant is manufacturing iPhones and has inventory basically ready to be delivered, including purportedly leaked photos to back up the claims.
The article notes, based on what I can discern from a Yahoo! Babelfish Portuguese to English machine translation, is that since the Brazilian Government announced that Foxconn would invest billions in Brazil, only “manufacturing iPads” had been specifically mentioned, but that in some interviews, the minister Aloízio Mercadante made it clear that the first Apple products to leave the the Foxconn fabrication facility in Jundiaí would be iPhones and iPods
The site reports that information they have now is that Foxconn Brazil output is currently 100% dedicated one to smartphones, although it seems production has been slightly delayed from it’s original startup target of July in order to coincide with the arrival of new iPhones, and their read now is that it will be an iPhone 4 variant with 8 GB memory. Like most of us, they’re unsure as to whether the new iPhone Apple will unveil tomorrow will be a completely remodeled iPhone 5 or an iPhone 4S, but are certain it will have an A5 CPU and an 8MP camera, and soon buyers will be able to find iPhone 4s with “Designed by Apple in California, Assembled in Brazil” in the store.
Whatever, it will all be much clearer tomorrow.
