I went with the smaller 8gb version due to price. I also was forced due to selling out. Now I am thinking of ways to make sure I won't be running out of space. Here are my current thoughts, but please give me any ideas you have. 1) Google Play Music. I uploaded my full music library. I will keep 1-2gb on the device for when I am out of my service area and need tunes. 2) Google Drive. Dump all pictures and videos to my Google Drive. Delete them off to save space when needed. 3) USB OTG. I ordered a USB on the go cable and plan on having a 8gb Flash drive full of my movies. I will keep a few on the device itself, but for those long road trips that will give me extra space and movies. I haven't actually done this before, so this is in theory. This may also require root (which is why most of us bought a Nexus device anyways). Let me know if you guys have any other suggestions.
