WMPoweruser reports on seeing a 32GB variant of the Stormtrooper white Nokia Lumia 900 at O2 Germany.
Now, this could simply be an error though a few things may suggest otherwise:
1) Germany has had variants before of WIndows Phone devices with larger capacity than standard – 16GB variants in phones that are 8GB elsewhere
2) WMPU has contacted O2 Germany customer service who confirms the 32GB size (they could be wrong, CS may simply be going from the data on the site) – they also have a printed brochure that shows the same 32GB storage.
This would be nice. 16GB seems to be the sweetspot since most people aren’t requiring much more than 8GB or 16GB. Nokia did have huge internal storage in the N97 and N900 (32GB) and up to 64GB in the top end Nokia N9. But if the majority being sold are the 16GB ones then it might be better economically to stick with that.
However, it would be nice to have options. It makes manufacturing harder as you have another variant but in the end, it’s good for the end consumer who wants more storage (especially if like the N9 or iPhone there is no MicroSD slot).
If this turns out to be real, I’d like this please. I’ve already used up a lot of space on my Lumia 800. 32GB is a nice minimum size for a geek I guess.
Cheers Viipottaja for the tip
