Indeed. Spec is 20.6TB uncompressed using 36GB DLT 7000 cartridges.

Still, the most storage local in any current phone is 128GB with another 
128GB possible through a microSD card. Combined that is "only" 1/4th of 
a TB.

Looks like we'll definitely have to reference cloud storage on the sign. 
I am fine with that because the prevalence of LTE + WiFi make many TBs 
of storage * essentially * local/personal to your phone.
