8GB 3GS in Rogers system
Despite official denials, an 8GB iPhone 3GS remains in Rogers databases, according to reports. The Canadian carrier has disavowed or refused to comment on several previous leaks, which have hinted that current 16 and 32GB phones could be joined by a cheaper model. The new 3GS would allegedly replace the $99 iPhone 3G once stocks of the latter are depleted.
A source claims, however, that at Rogers' SalesCentral website, a listing titled "IPHN8BLKR 3GS GSM" persists. Several Rogers dealers have meanwhile suggested that the 8GB model has been regularly appearing, and disappearing, from databases during the past week. Earlier rumors have hinted that Rogers is already taking 8GB 3GS units into inventory.
