As harsh as that sounds, I completely agree. If they're going to take away microSD expansions then at least give us 32GB to start with. Giving their consumers 16GB off the bat where the CDMA version gets 32GB is pretty pathetic. The pricing to have profit in the end shouldn't be that bad when putting 16GB vs 32GB.
Google actually was going to give us 32GB GSM but then it was canceled for a unspecified reason and it never went through.
I can't use cloud because I live in New York City and most of the times, I'm underground so I don't always get service. So I do want my music library to be on my phone but instead I use a media player to carry with me (not really necessary but its what I've been used to so I sticked with it -- would be lovely to have it in all in one device without sacrificing too much storage space AND battery life)
