Let us hope the people making the decisions on what to stock are not as ignorant as a lot of people in the stores selling them...... They could actually make the decision based on a wrong perception being pushed in stores now.
very true. the only difference is the 'choice' in the consumer's mind vs the 'choice' from the carrier's perspective. basically what they think you should have while also keeping in mind their objectives. margin, contracts and what will sell to the majority of their customer base is what drives the choice they give us.
i'd think the market analysis by verizon and samsung (possibly supported by google's own analytics) has given them supreme confidence that they're making the right decision in what they've offered. so far the results are very telling. 'sold out' pre-orders and continued very high demand once they get more stock. i wouldn't be surprised if the carriers and/or google have an automated method for determining how phones on their network are being used right down to the storage space reporting in the phone settings. think about that. this could likely be the reason the 32gb internal storage version isn't on the radar right now. that's not reassuring to the people who depend more on high internal storage than sd expansion capability, however it just goes to show how important verizon, samsung, google think those users are to their overall objectives.
