My Z10 has 200GB of storage, how about yours?
So I was just reading some comments about how BB is pushing the cloud storage and that you may not even need that much 'stock' storage in future phones... and I came to realize that my Z10 has A LOT of storage when you think of it.
Here is the storage break down:
Internal - 16GB (only used for apps)
SD Card - 64GB ( all media on device)
Total physical storage is 80GB
Dropbox - 35GB (mostly used for work/school syncing)
Box 1 - 50GB (music and videos)
Box 2 - 25GB (important file backup)
GMail - 10GB (used for easy access to important documents)
Total cloud storage is 120GB
Physical Storage - 80GB
Cloud Storage - 120GB
Total Storage is 200GB
This is CRAZY when you really think about it, especially since BB has said that the Z10 and BB10 devices will be able to support up to 2TB sd cards. The amount of storage we have available now is astonishing.
How much storage space do you have? What do you use it for?

I wont count gmail as I cant fill it as needed (T.W.S.S)
I Have one folder for Dropbox and Box Pin'd as a Blackberry sync folder and Box also uploads Pics and Vids as taken. Dropbox houses all of my "My Documents" type folders from home desktop, laptop, and my office computer. I love this set up and is something that I have always wanted. I can get any file I need at anytime and view 99% of them.I type like what I am saying is fact. It's probably not.

I'm using some Gmail accounts for document repositories because their search function makes it so easy to find stuff once it's in there. I agree though, we have a lot of storage available to us in this new cloud computing world

im not a fan of cloud storage, i know its great to have because it can be accessed from any device but on a mobile device i'm sure you will eat though your data unless you have unlimited
As for cloud data on the Z10, i use it mostly to upload pictures or documents to the cloud. I have a 6GB data plan so im not really worried, but the reason I do it that way is because once they are synced to the cloud it doesnt matter where I am and I can access them on any computer (and i sync them into organized folders). It is much better than emailing them and then having to sift through emails. Also, i can then share the link with friends/family and they can open it whenever they choose...where as certain carriers (bell) only allow picture messages if you are on their network and NOT on wifi.

Box did a promotion about 18 months ago where if you signed up you got 25Gb, recently my friend told me of a 50GB promotion for new users. I contacted Box and asked them 'what about existing customers?' - they added 50Gb to my account.
They told me they'll always match a new user promotion providing you tell them the URL.
Z10 = 16Gb
SD Card = 64Gb
Dropbox = 100Gb
Box = 75Gb
Total storage = 255GbPosted from my awesome QNX powered Q10 or my penguin powered laptop
