Apple doubles iPhone capacity

The 16GB version of the iPhone, which Apple announced in the US on Tuesday, is also arriving on European shores.

Apple’s UK partner, O2, is already selling the beefier unit for £329, £60 more than the 8GB version, and French partner Orange is taking contact details for those interested in the 16GB device.

No word yet from German partner T-Mobile or UK retailer Carphone Warehouse on when they will have the unit for sale.

On Tuesday, Apple said that the 16GB iPhone would be made available immediately in the US for $499, making it $100 more expensive than the original 8GB model.

But will another 8GB of storage be enough to pick sales up again? We heard from the manager of a Carphone Warehouse in London that sales have dropped off since the device launched in November.
