Hi @Bert22306, thanks, but no, it's bits. Micron confirmed that once it went live as Bytes. It's a common error that people make with memory I've found (I use to freelance for a memory company). We live in a Byte world!
I don't think so, Janine. The small "b" means "bit," while capital B means "byte" (8 bits). Total capacity of RAM is usually measured as the quantity of bytes it can hold, e.g. ASCII characters would be bytes, so it should be labeled as 8 GB, as you had it originally.
You can verify this in any number of places. Here are two examples.

All claim lower costs and power use than cellular but none have wide deployment yet. Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
