if not the whole reason, most of the reason is that when the manufacturer makes their claim of 8GB, they are using the formula of 1000B being 1KB, 1000KB being 1MB, 1000MB being 1 GB, then when systems read the card, 1024B is 1KB, 1024KB is 1MB, 1024MB is 1GB...
so if the card is 8000000 Bytes claimed by the manuf. then 8000000/1024/1024 should be 7.6 gigs
my 8gig card shows 7.39 in my phone, so maybe the OS reserved 200MB for something?
