    That seems a little low for the 16gb model, but I dont doubt its true. I have the 32gb and dont remember exactly how much it came with free, but I have a few small files on it and still have 29.1gb left.

    That's because the of the OS, it's 16GB without any OS or ANYTHING on it. After a fresh install of webOS it will be a few less than advertised. This goes for all technologies such as the iPhone. It's also a 16GB but the software takes up about 2GB leaving me with only 12GB of free space.

    also 16gb isn't 16gb. Ever get a new hard drive and it's not exactly what it says? That's the formatting and the definitions/interpretations of bytes and megabytes and gigabytes. It's always going to read lower.

    Also, as mentioned add to that the OS with native apps and you've got 13.6.
