app storage limitation?


Nov 3, 2009, 1:55 PM
I've been reading about Android limiting where you can store applications. The Droid comes with 512 ROM for applications. (Not sure preloaded applications use up some of this .)

Are Android app developers that buttoned up and space conscious? Can I expect a game like TigerWoods to ever be available on this platform?

Is is even logical to compare it to my ipod touch that can utilize the entire 16 gigs for apps/music/video or whatever?

Six months down the road I don't want to be hassled with which app do I keep and which can I get rid of to make room.

remember most apps are TINY. blackberries only have 32mb for apps.

That being said, they are working for a way that only executable files have to be on the phone, an the data (the graphics, saved games, etc) will be able to be on the memory card.

Even the vaunted iPhone 3GS has only about 200 megabytes of RAM available under supreme, unrealistic, never occurring optimal conditions so be kind to the fledgling Android devices. If you "jailbreak" your Apple device you can expose exactly how perilously low an iPhone's free RAM can fluctuate. Once freed from memory clogs, the iPhone 3GS runs much smoother.
