Yesterday, we posted next generation iPhone rumor roundup and within 24 hours we have four more rumors to report. The first rumor is that Apple is working on allowing movie and TV show downloads directly to the iPhone and iPod touch. A blogger discovered mobile iTunes client for movies and TV shows accidentally when he clicked on iTunes ads in iPhone app TwitterFon. The ads in the app pointed to “iTunes Movies”, “iTunes Movie Rentals” and “iTunes TV”. It is likely that Apple will allow video download in next gen iPhone over WiFi network.

The second and third iPhone rumors are both from AT&T. First up, AT&T upgrade program for BlackBerry has listed 32GB iPhone as a trade-in option for $335. AT&T is now the second carrier after T-Mobile Austria to accidentally add 32GB iPhone to their listing, indicating that we will very soon see iPhone model with 32GB storage capacity.

In the second AT&T related rumor, AppleInsider has posted that one subscriber called AT&T customer service to replace his wife’s death iPhone and he was informed by a service rep that AT&T is no longer selling new iPhone 3G. The rep also said that he was told not to expect any additional stock of iPhone 3G. Similar iPhone shortages happened about few months before iPhone 3G was launched last year. It is now almost evident that we will see the next gen iPhone in about a month’s time.

The last iPhone related rumor was posted by BGR, according to the website, Roger the Canadian iPhone carrier is preparing to launch the next gen iPhone in July-August timeframe with a 3-year contract. Roger will launch the new iPhone on the same day it ships in US and on the launch day it will limit one iPhone per customer.
