Rogers site shows 8GB iPhone 3GS

8GB iPhone 3GS Site

Rogers may have inadvertently revealed its plans this morning with a splash page supporting recent leaks of an 8GB iPhone 3GS. Clicking on the "iPhone Comparison" tab shows a list of capacities that shows both the iPhone 3GS and the earlier 3G coming in 8GB form. Most of the carrier's material (including the same section) still shows only the older phone having an 8GB capacity, suggesting that the information is either incorrect or else was posted prematurely.

An apparent internal leak from a week earlier states that the carrier has already been receiving the lower-capacity and presumably less expensive iPhone 3GS but that it will only start selling the more advanced version once stock of the iPhone 3G sells out. Notably, Rogers' front page and many of its in-store ads have switched to promoting the older device. These are believed to exist partly to switch attention away from an ongoing shortage of the 16GB and 32GB phones but, if an 8GB 3GS is enroute, might also serve to clear stock for a new model.

Rogers has previously remained non-committal when speaking to Electronista, only reiterating what it already sells and neither confirming nor denying plans. If true, it's also uncertain if any other carrier will receive an 8GB 3GS unit or if the version would be specific to Canada.

    Oh dear . . .

    So the exclusivity deal on the 3G may run out in October for many carriers, but the 3G will no longer be manufactured. Makes sense.
