In late December 2009, rumors were at an all time high for an 8GB iPhone 3GS. At the time, a user of the apfeltalk forums found the existence of an 8GB iPhone 3GS. The forum user had ordered an iPhone 3G and upon arrival, the box packaging had indicated an 8GB iPhone 3GS.
To this day it has not been revealed whether the label was a printing error, a Photoshop job, or possibly an early leak of an upcoming iPhone 3GS capacity (that has yet to be available). The release of an 8GB iPhone 3GS would most certainly replace the current $99 8GB iPhone 3G.
The current iPhone capacities and versions come in the following:
- 8GB iPhone 3G Black
- 16GB iPhone 3GS White
- 16GB iPhone 3GS Black
- 32GB iPhone 3GS White
- 32GB iPhone 3GS Black
So is there an 8GB iPhone 3GS or what?
Enter Best Buy Canada.
Today, Best Buy Canada seems to be offering an 8GB iPhone 3GS from Telus and Bell. The apparently new device is being offered on both a 3-year agreement or outright. As would be expected, the 3-year agreement price is $99.99 and the outright price is $599.99, which are the prices that are currently offered for the 8GB iPhone 3G.
Below are the links to the Best Buy Mobile pages and photos in case the Best Buy pages change:
If you look closely, the photo of the iPhone even includes the compass app, which is exclusive to the iPhone 3GS.
So, is this a massive error on Best Buy’s part? Or is there an 8GB iPhone 3GS coming to a Best Buy near you?
