    Every hard drive has less space than advertised.

    Yes I know, I was just wondering though because like I said my first gen 8GB had a bit more space so I wanted to make sure this was usual.

    i noticed the same thing. My 8gb first gen had more available space than my 4G.

    i guess that ios 4.2 takes up a lot more space.

    really regretting not buying the 32 gb for $70 more.
