8 gigs is WAY too small. I'm struggling with 16 gigs in my Nexus 7. I have about a gig free and it grows all the time. I use an OTG cable with a 32 gig flash drive for movies/music. If you only use it for basic things because you have a tablet with you...fine, but even then...for me...its a deal breaker. I see on ebay and craigslist that there are Galaxy Nexus devices around $250 for a 16 gig for both Verizon and ATT (gsm unlocked for their HSPA+) network and I may get my wife one. Her Thunderbolt just isn't holding up and HTC doesn't care about the poor thing.
