The Aurora provides 32GB internal storage space.  There is a microSD card slot that supports memory cards of up to 256GB.  This is the first BlackBerry phone with dual SIM support.  Well, this may not be exciting to you if you have been using phones from other brands but it is exciting to individuals loyal to the BlackBerry brand.
