Arc onboard memory?

Hi I am new to the forum, and have just got hold of a Kobo Arc. Whilst everything looks good, I have connected the Kobo to my PC to upload my EPUB books from file, on connecting the Arc I have noticed that the onboard memory of the Arc is depicted/displayed as having 4.8GB free of 5.4GB. I am confused as I have got the 16GB Arc version and cannot therefore understand why the Arc is only showing a total of 5.4GB. Can anyone help me please?

Something is screwed up, then. Should be showing 12.62GB for total space (the other 3.38GB being taken up by Android itself) in Settings -> Storage.

Almost sounds like you have an 8gb version. They were supposed to have been scrapped early days

I thought they never actually released an 8GB version - just that they scrapped the plans for it and just went with 16/32...
