    I'm getting a 16 gig version, I'll allocate 6 gigs to music, 4 to videos, 3 to apps and 1 to photos
    3 GB for apps is A LOT.
    Most of the apps are pretty small. Even Super Monkey Ball is only 35MB and that's massive compared to the majority of the apps up for sale.

    It is, and you'd have to go hog wild with the apps to hit anywhere close to there. I, as in a previous post, use Apple Lossless for my codec, so that's a huge memory hit there. And, video is an absolute pig with a full length feature film from iTunes running 1.2 - 1.5 GB. So, budget accordingly!

    where did you get that idea?
    it has never been possible in any prior cases... has it?
    Probably not. Apple has never offered an expansion program before, preferring to sell you the next, greatest generation with more memory for a heck of alot more money. $80 is what you'll pay to have the battery replaced. Plus be without your beloved iPhone for at least 3 business days. Unless you'd like a rental iPhone to tide you over, in which case that'll be another $25 or so thank you much. Did I mention I own a big chunk of AAPL in my Roth IRA?

    And no, 8GB isn't enough. Heck, 16GB isn't enough. For those who own a house, you'll be very familiar with this axiom. Stuff always expands to fill the space available. That goes double for memory, disc space and expenses rising to meet increased income!
    Someone posted something like that on here or another forum but I was not sure if it was true.

    The way I see it, it's extra 8GB for $100. That seems to be a fair price tag. A 8GB flash SD card will run about $80 today.
    My bad...this is what I read I guess I read it wrong.

    You are COMPLETELY correct. I thought most of the apps were going to be on the larger side. Still, I wonder how big TeleNav is going to be? I guess it doesn't take up that much space on the Blackberry, huh?
    When I posted this I thought the games were going to be much MUCH larger in terms of space.
