    Hi, got a new 40" GTV and honeycomb 3.2 update.The built-in storage shows only 4GB total when it's stated to be 8GB.I chatted online w/Sony customer service & did a factory reset, it did not help.Is it some defect or something to be concerned about?

    No, the entire 8G is not accessible to you. Half of the flash storage is set aside for the maintenance and upkeep of the system partition and services. The other half which is available to you is part of the /dev/fuse partition which is mounted under /mnt/sdcard directory.

    That just shows the guy at sony tech support was clueless about the missing 4GB.Then he told to call the telephone tech support if the factory reset didn't help. Thanks
