Apple to Launch 8 GB iPhone 3GS?

Boy Genius Report has received several tips that Rogers Wireless, Apple's Canadian iPhone partner, is in the process of shipping an 8 GB version of the iPhone 3GS to its retail stores. BGR has also received several photos of what appear to be an internal memo in Rogers' retail computer system announcing the transition to the new model to staff members.

We've had a number of unconfirmed tips over the last few days about this so we figured we'd post it apparently it seems that Rogers in Canada is in the process of shipping iPhone 3GS 8GB flavor handsets to stores. Again, unconfirmed, no idea on pricing (we have no clue where to start on that) but we felt it was newsworthy to at least let you guys know what we're hearing.

According to the screenshots, it appears that Rogers is attempting to sell through its existing inventory of the 8 GB iPhone 3G before transitioning to the iPhone 3GS as a replacement at the 8 GB level.
