Google Planning Android App Limit Fix
During Tuesday's Nexus One announcement, Google revealed that it has come up with a solution to a problem plaguing Android's ability to handle applications. Android currently only supports applications that are run from the internal memory (often 128MB to 512MB). This limits the number of apps any single Android device can contain, and also limits apps from offering more complex operations. Google says it will fix this in a future Android release by enabling microSD card encryption. This means that Android devices will then be able to store applications on an attached microSD card in addition to the internal memory, thereby lifting the app limit. Google didn't say when this update would be available. The encryption will prevent people from stealing the application code from the microSD card.
