Get the return on production investment happening asap.
Build the standard model by priority until orders support expansion and variations.
Already a lot of radio and firmware models to support.
Going 32 GB silver is economic production sense.
Even Samsung, far wealthier, is holding back on their 64 GB model. Same reason.
The black and 64 GB model combinations will come as demand increases. Both cost more to make, so they'll come later.
It's all about turning inventory. If you don't offer two choices without money coming in, you don't run out of one choice.
Coming soon vs. We ran out = Big difference.
