This may be another rumor, but I might have heard that the 16Gb and the 32Gb models are one and the same, with the sorage partitioned and locked down. Is this a possible coincidence? I know that many PC components work this way, such as a CPU. The manufacturer produces a batch of chips with the same die. If they have a high enough percentage of those cores tested in each chip, they will lock all the similar cores for that batch. So a four core CPU becomes a two core based off of a random probability that it may have a faulty core. With the proper hardware and software, the locked down two core can become a fully funtional four core. Given that the rumor is true regarding the 16Gb and 32Gb, this may be a realistic possibility.
