128GB iPod Touch september 2010

16GB 2007 (Already have)
32GB 2008 (Almost certain)
64GB 2009
128GB 2010

they increase the storage every year and flash meomery has to double each time

..and I'm pretty certain will have 1 TerraByte flash before 2015

Um one teeny tiny problem that may or may not apply. I am not sure of the speed at which flash memory is increasing it's capacity, however from what I have understood it is proably not going faster than moore's law and therefore flash memory cannot keep doubling every year for forever so that may be looking a bit too far into the future. Also I am pretty sure that as flash memory size increases it approaches that set minimum size limit that exists and therefore people are working on better memory technologies that have a smaller minimum size and may even be out by 2010 so memory by 2010 might not even be "flash" memory.

Bernardo have you considered looking at the maximum capacity hard drives available a certain time before each iPod came out for a more accurate depiction of hard drive size options in general, or perhaps a regression line for the data you have presented? Following an exponential regression line there won't even be 2 TB of storage in iPods in 6 years, also your data ranges over 7 yrs not 6. 7 yrs from now the line predicts closer to what you have stated. However that still may be inaccurate.

oh boy do i feel stupid.

Actually the first post is more or less right, but they will go for more even numbers, so I could see maybe 250 gig (MAX) by 2013.

Who knows, maybe Apple won't even go past 80 at a certain point because of people just not using their space.

They will certainly go past 80 as they are able and people ask for more space. The main point is that as space increases, some people might not need as much and thus smaller size models might come out e.g. Nano 16GB 32GB 64GB 128GB, in other words the range of sizes may just keep increasing. The again apple does love it's money so that probably will haven at capacities well above 16-128GB.

Do you think we'll get a 32GB iPhone or iPod Touch first?

I dunno about iPod Touch future why Apple will resell iphones in Europe now... And have more persons in all world importing from US, a huge number of iphones...

Maybe with iPhone in more countries, iPod Touch dies...

This is a good strategy... if you make a prediction for several years in the future, people will have completely forgotten when you're wrong.

Can think of 3 reasons.

Maybe because not everybody needs a phone ?

They do not want an ugly iPhone ?

or

They read enough negative reviews to know they should stay clear ?

Mobiles have more sell than players. Ok, but they can change iPhone Design, no? Steve Jobs don't belive in reviews... If u know Apple, u know what i say.
