Now I'm hoping that Google have joined the real world and will (at least) release the N5 in 16GB and 32 GB flavours (ideally 64GB), rather than the 8/16 of the N4. But given that they went backwards when they introduced an 8GB N4 I'm not betting on anything.
I have hope that it will come in the 16/32 options. The Nexus 7 last year started out only having 8/16 while this years model started with 16/32. So I'm hoping that trend continues.
