    I was wondering what people have for Available space in Internal Phone Storage. I believe that has to do mainly with how many apps you have installed, although sometimes (since updating the other day) the number seems to change when I don't delete or download a new app. Maybe I'm going crazy. Anyway, my available space is 53.61MB :)

    Internal storage I have 75.88MB. Internal storage may also be affected by what apps are currently running too. I'm not sure about that though.

    I second that. The caches for many apps are stored in internal memory, as well as the phone's own debugging cache.

    I agree, its like there is no "overwrite" with updates for apps. The movie app is like around 1mb when i first got it, but it ended up being close to 8mb after all the updates. I had to uninstall it and then reinstall it, now its back to around 1mb. Many apps are like that wich I think is weird, they should overwrite to save the tiny internal space that we do have on this phone. Or at least push it all to sd.


    Ps. whats up with that 5+mb undate for Google Maps app???

    That what I thought. I should have rooted instead of going with the OTA 2.1. Hopefully the dev will finish their root for 2.1

    Froyo is the next OS version. Up until now it has been all pastries, I think... now they are switching to dairy? Anyways, they're alphabetical. I know Cupcake, then Eclair, then Froyo... maybe beta was before Cupcake. Someone more knowledgable than I will have to give you the whole story.

    Dang, guess I have a bunch of apps! Anybody with less than 60MB? Just did a Factory Reset and will only download apps I actually use so we'll see what that does for me. I think part of my problem was how when you update it basically just adds on to the existing application, instead of over-writing it. Does anyone delete their old app and reinstall it as opposed to running the updates? Seems like after a while that would eat up a lot of necessary memory.
