If Verizon only offers the 16GB Nexus, is it a deal breaker?

    It would be for me! If it's 16GB, I will go for the iPhone. Pound for pound, based on reviews, the iPhone and the galaxy nexus will probably be the two best phones on Verizon.

    My Droid X currently has 7GB and a 32GB SD card. My combined usage is anywhere from 13 to 16GB. 16 doesn't give me enough play room for my comfort. My next phone has to be a major improvement from my current phone in every way that is possible.

    Besides, I suspect, as soon as they get us used to cloud storage, we will end up spending more to increase storage in "rent". I would rather rely on storage that I purchase. I have used Apple's cloud storage for my MacBook air. I didn't pay for it one year and I lost everything. They could not retrieve what was lost once, I rejoined.

    Not a deal breaker for me but I hardly store things on on my phone. Current ROM only, prior 2-3 backups, some modding stuff, and that is about it. Any pics or anything I take I move to PC so not to lose them. Pretty much I have a 16g SD and like 12.5 is unoccupied, I shall be OK.

    Not saying I would be happy with VZW since it would be one more way they mess with us.

    Would be for me for sure. Looks like another rumor says 32 in training materials. Let's just home its not pre-printed stuff and not updated, or im waiting for the Edge.

    It'll probably be around 13-14gb available. Great thing is there won't be a certain amount partitioned for apps or anything like that. Storage and apps now share the exact same space.

    I stated in another post, that 16GB would probably work for me, but if they try to sell it for $299 I'll have a real problem with that.

    16Gb could be a deal breaker for me. I'm in too many settings where I don't have wireless access.

    Also without USB Mass Storage, I'm not sure I can run media hrough the USB port in my truck stereo.

    Trouble is I'm not sold on any of the current alternatives and my OG is dying.

    I'd still get it as I have no need for thousands of songs on my phone which I rarely listen to, or HD videos and movies that I rarely watch haha. I have a 32GB card on my D1 and still have 26GB free. Google Music, and Dropbox take care of all the stuff I need.

    The 16GB is the pre-production (test) model, if verizon actually gets off their ass and releases it indeed will be 32GB.

    Massive dealbreaker. When your music files are on average 30-40mb each, 16GB is not even close to enough. I've got maybe 8 gigs left out of a 32GB card, most of it used by music. FLAC bitrate=1000+kbps.
