Is it too much to ask how much ROM this thing will have. Given that what it comes with is what you are stuck with in WPs new concept. 16Mpixel camera and 72p video won't be so appealing with 8G ROM now would it? At least 16? Hopefully 32? 64 would be way too much to hope for even considering the camera capability and this is supposed to replace my Zune as well.

UPDATE: Well it's 16G, wow, I'm impressed....not. Oh, and a non-removable battery. Lumia 900 appears to be the same.

Wonder why no one wants to release a 32GB device...
