OK due to a recent discussion on our Google+ page I have decided to take this to the masses and get opinions on it.
Yesterday I posted that Google’s new Nexus 7 had less space than it advertised for the user, not in saying that I didn’t say it was wrong or that I don’t understand why it is how it is, simply I pointed out the fact that there is less – which of course is normal.
The question is this…
If an OEM sells a device saying 8GB should they partition a larger drive to ensure 8GB of space is always available for the user?
In my corner I put the fact that until just a few years ago, broadband companies were selling broadband at lets say 10mb and they were forced to change it to up to 10mb as it was considered wrong… isn’t this just a case of the same?
I would be interested to see your comments below and please remember, this is not a discussion around why it is how it is or if its wrong.
