Re: User vs. Built-in
In the strictest sense, user available memory is a subset of this built-in memory on the device. Some of this non-ROM internal memory still has to be reserved for use by the operating system and actively running applications, so it is partitioned off and only a portion of the internal storage capacity would be made available for actual user data like the address book, media files, etc.
