I sold my 16gb N7 as soon as rumour mill started.

I now really want to replace my galaxy nexus with the Nexus 4 - price is amazing but I cannot buy a 16gb phone (AGAIN)

Not sure now if to buy the 10" 32gb or the 32gb N7... Mmmm...

Of that Google page said 32gb N4... I would want it yesterday

having had, and got rid of, a 10 inch tab, i much prefer the 7 inch formfactor. plus the n7 is quad core, and half the price....

havent managed to fill my 16gm Gnex yet, and take the N7 to work, so combined 32GB is fine for me ;)

IMO the Nexus brand is simply not appealing enough for me. THey are either current tech or just a wee step behind current tech each and every time :(. SO until google actualy steps it up a notch and delivers new tech in the Nexus brands I am simply not interested.

I think you're being a little down on the brand. This new revision of the range brings very good spec products at very affordable prices. Phones and Tablets can't really get 'technically' much better can they? Its all about price and attracting customers to a particular eco-system/brand.

If Google selling a N4 a 16gb for £279 (maybe at cost or a loss?) gets people into "Google" then job done?

Amazon are doing the same.

I think its staggering that Google can sell a phone with the specs of the N4 for nigh on half the price of the Galaxy Nexus just 1 year on.

Another thought about the £279 N4 price point...... ZTE and Huawei, where does it leave them and their new upper end units? Stranded i'd say?

Hate how we pay so much tax / VAT in the UK. Pricing would be spot on otherwise and I would put my money down for an 8gb phone (how much for 8gb extra ram!)
Phone looks nice, but a few niggles. Thinking oppo 5, huawei D2, or some other 1080p phone.
Mind you, the new ZTE / Beidou Little Pepper quad core goes on presale tomorrow for just over 100 quids :)

Why stop there? Wait until they reach 128Gb... or 256Gb. Let's come back down to earth for a minute - do you NEED 64Gb on a tablet? I mean NEED, not want - seriously? You can plug in a USB drive with OTG if it's really that much of a big deal. It's a BUDGET tablet, and by all accounts and reviews, A STUNNER - the clue's in the title.

Nexus 4 -

What no SDcard slot ? , what is wrong with these company's
more and more phones are coming out now with no expandable storage and a meesly 16gb max, i think this day and age is very poor, what with all the HD content and stuff nowaday's.

a couple of mp3's,photos,videos and apps and your full lol
lets hope there's a hidden slot underneath like the san diego :-)

"A couple"? 2,000 5MB MP3 files can fit in 10Gb, so you're sliiiiightly exaggerating ;)

Plus the 20000 in your Google music account. Personally I've got a 32gb card in my phone and i barely use any of it. I was assuming that my iPod would die soon and I'd fall back on to my phone, for this money though I'll replace my o2x and if the iPod dies use the old phone instead, i don't think I'd get much for it now the nexus 4 is so cheap

^ This

People are "sheeple". You DO NOT NEED all those Gb, you just convince yourself you do, and, spoilt little consumers as we can be, no matter what features something has, people ALWAYS focus on what it HASN'T.

Pah! :P

Judge not lest thee be judged?
So you don't need more storage fine, certainly doesn't mean that no one does.
I wouldn't want a device with less than 32gb, even that would be easy to fill, apps are only getting bigger too.

As for your why not 128gb, indeed why not, that's what I need for my next MP3 player, shan't be buying one til they hit that capacity.

Fair comment. I apologise - each to his own, it just seems like a demand not too necessary.

Take issue with the government, not Google. :D

Will wait for a smaller phone. 4.7 inch is too big for a phone screen.

Great specs for the price but letdown by the absence of a MicroSD slot.

When will the manufacturers realise that not everybody has an unlimited data plan and/or continuous coverage?

Cloud storage is great for accessing important documents but Google Music isn't the answer for everyone just now.
