The only way the iPhone 5S will come with 128GB is if they include an iThumb Drive as an accessory.

failed product.
They will say they are the first smartphone maker in the world who came with 128 GB internal space and people will fall into their trap!

The ZTE Nubia Z7 is not out, it's a rumor. The Edge MIGHT come out in May 2014, but it is doubtful, at this point. The biggest Huawei phone is 64GB. If Apple announces and ships a 128GB iPhone in September, they will be first.

128GB worth of storage, not a single GB is removable, swappable, upgradeable. Junk as usual.

If they add that much memeory like it would ever happened, the price would exceed probably 899-1,000$

You can get a 64gb class 10 Sandisk micro SD card from amazon or eBay for $55. How the $@%# can Apple justify charging hundreds of dollars more for a bit more storage?

Oh yeah...because iDiots will pay for it.

Google charges $50 for 8GB more on the Nexus 4. I would think 64GB to 128GB is worth another $100. That extra 64GB of built-in storage is much faster and less prone to damage than that SD card. Math and logic aren't your strong suits, are they?

When you do a nand backup you then put your stuff on sd card and take it out, if you ever need safety backups if stolen or service wow you really don't know crap about anything do you. Do your homework on phone tech before jumping into the bug pond iboy

Today, people are backing up their data on the cloud.

Physical back-ups using 5.5" floppy disks or Iomega zip drives or sd cards are dated methods.

techaman, you need to join the cloud computing era.

The cloud is a temp area think about it easy hack area to get all your info plus not everyone wants to put all videos and pictures on cloud for anyone to hack it or like many times before company says sorry we lost the server and the crash lost it all also devs don't put their stuff on the cloud as a back up

$499 subsidized? Assuming the unsubsidized is $899-$999+... Bejesus! I'd rather buy a laptop with that kind of money (Macbook Air?).

$100 jump from 64 to 128gb. $100 jump from 32 to 64gb. $100 jump from 16 to 32gb. That's $300 for what should cost $100 or so.

$100 jump from 16 to 32gb? Where's YOUR math and logic? A class 10 16gb micro SD card costs less than $15.

I don't disagree with your point about the Nexus 4. And $100 might not be an overly outrageous jump from 64 to 128gb. But $300 from 16 to 128gb is absurd, especially given the high base cost of the 16gb device.

And of course, there's the expensive and absurdly restrictive issues of iTunes...

EDIT: This was meant as a reply to post 26.

I agree that the lower jumps are ridiculous. However, an extra $100 from 64 to 128 is far from ridiculous. I WOULD like to see 32GB as the floor, and then I wouldn't mind $399 (subsidized) as the top end. That won't happen, but I still stand by 64 to 128GB for $100 being logical.

Now that's some innovation, who needs large 1080p displays to view more content or 2GB of RAM for better multitasking?

Apple usually is the most expensive smartphone(unlocked and without contract), I can't guess how much this one would cost...
