    just wondering if anyone acutally got that one.

    i got the 8gb but probably gunna get the 16gb since the sound amplified from the phone is so much better than the sound that comes from my ipod, going to put my music on the phone

    i dont know how to do the cloud music storing thing so, and its probably not as good quality, not sure though.

    I got the 16 GB, I couldn't imagine getting the 8 GB, I have less than 5GB in storage left, although it's mostly picture. The music sync is a nightmare on WP8 so I try to avoid putting music on unless I really like the song.

    Totally Off-Topic, I started to sync with Songbird, after setting it up it's almost as with Zune.

    On topic, I have the 16 GB version, I don't think there's a 8 GB version in Europe, at least not in my country.

    The 16GB seemed to be the only version available during the first week and very limited in supply. Got mine the first week and it was the only one shipped to the local AT&T store.

    Off topic: So songbird does work with WP8? Also are you on W8 or W7?

    On topic: I have the 16GB I don't believe VZW sells the 8GB.

    Yes, Songbird just recognizes the phone as external media player. I'm using it on W8, but it should also work on W7 as my office computer recognizes WP8 in the same way.

    Yes. But on a global scale, the international version was 16Gb in most markets. The 8Gb is only available in some markets. But you see that memory is not all deciding, price and the overall quality of a device gets you customers.

    Although I generally love my 8x, I find the 16GB to be almost uselessly small. Can't believe the phone would even boot in 8GB.
