16gb

Good news for those on AT&T eagerly awaiting the Nokia Lumia 920 or HTC 8X as eBay/Best Buy have the devices listed with pricing and “expected availability” date. And yes, you can now order them too.

The new date is November 9th, which fits in the idea that AT&T is really scrambling to get these phones out the door. Originally we heard early November and then later November 4th. News came forward recently that it had been pushed back and seeing as AT&T did not reveal any information at Monday’s event, it made sense that this was in “motion”.

Of course since AT&T has still not officially announced pricing and availability, all of this is subject to change.

Yes, the big mystery that really wasn't a mystery has now ended. Even though the phone goes on sale tomorrow morning, many were still left wondering how much memory the Samsung Focus S would have on board.  Eight, sixteen, thirty-two gigabytes?

Well, as you can tell by the title of this post, the correct answer is: 16GB resulting in about 13.76GB of actual storage after the OS

The device also appears to be using Samsung's NAND memory and there doesn't seem to be a clear way to expand it. The benefit here is it will be very fast, faster than just a microSD card for memory. The downside is yes, 16GB is all you get. The info above comes direct from AT&T themselves via their support pages, so we can consider it quite legit and reliable.

We'll be honest: for our needs, 16GB is fine and we're totally okay with this. In fact, it's exactly what we expected. But we know some of you will be disappointed, while others will be grateful it wasn't 8GB like the HTC Radar (but we never believed it had that little anyways).

So what say you: Satisfied or upset? Let us know in comments!

Last we checked in with Microsoft at Barcelona, they did not have much to say on the expandable storage card issue with Windows Phone. Remember that fiasco, where AT&T/Samsung were saying you can add memory and Microsoft say you can't, then AT&T reversed themselves? Later, Microsoft promised a list of compatible cards and from our impression and we're not joking, it seems like they actually forgot about the whole issue. (When we spoke with Sandisk, they weren't even aware there was a problem, huzzah).

Now we got word that AT&T is evidently selling (has been selling) 16GB microSD cards that are compatible with the Samsung Focus. Hey, for all we know these might actually work as a large majority of cards do. But we're also pretty confident that these are not "approved" by Samsung or Microsoft and that this is probably just a listing accident (plus, good luck on changing that Surround card!). Heck, we're not even sure how long this has been listed for...but we bet it's been up for awhile.

Anyways, consider this fair warning--nothing has changed on the expandable storage front for Windows Phone.
