    Than I will just have to wait... 11GB is almost impossible to use... I have 8 gigs in just music on my Nexus DancingNexus
    Its been a disappointing year and I think this was probably the last major flagship phone (especially from verizon).
    I was really looking forward to the nexus4 but that's not even on verizon, let alone the 16gb internal

    It's just disappointing to see new phones with unacceptable storage with no add on space.... I think they just all want to push cloud services... Still plenty games and apps people will like to store it on phone... Why not give choices from the beginning so if you are worried about the price range we can choose... This way you grab different groups interested.. Battery is yet to be determined but if you want to pump up a phone with music as an attraction how do you expect a tiny battery to survive? Wireless charging OK I just happen to have one in my pocket...

    Google is pushing Nexus devices towards using Cloud storage. Perhaps manufacturers are trying to do the same. It's kind of a catch 22 though because of all the tight data restrictions carriers have.

    -Why didn't you put more storage space or include an SD slot?

    -You can use the cloud

    -On my 2 GB data plan?

    -.....

    Fortunately, I'm on unlimited and don't care about how much data I use and don't really need storage space. The cloud does fine for me. But I can see what a hindrance it can be for customers stuck on a tiered or share plan.

    Then there is people like myself, who have boat load " I currently have 19 movies on my 64 Micro SD card" of high resolution movies on their micro SD cards and also high resolution Music "I also have that". In regards to the movies, why should I purchase a high resolution movie from Google Play or the Verizon movie Store and pay upwards of $15 and only be able to watch it on the cloud "data" be it wifi or 4G LTE, when I can just purchase the same movie on a DVD on Amazon "and now own the hard copy" and use DVD Catalyst - to transfer it to my PC and any portable media storage I want to " like my micro SD card" and be able to watch the movie and listen to my music while in areas with no reception. This goes to show you how desperate these companies are in trying to sell their cloud services "and service providers their data", this is the same reason I will not buy a Nexus Device, until it has removable storage or at least "minimum" 64 Gigs, which in the end you always have to shave 5 Gigs off that # for the OS.

    What Syndicate said: I fear Google is going to pressure everyone to stop using SD slots. Sad. Very sad. That, to me, is was always what set the Android phones far apart from the Apple phones.

    You should use Google music and save yourself some space.

    yes

    1) non-removable battery
    2) not enough capacity

    battery fail, not buying device

    I'd still get it. Even if the battery is small.
