    Until Android 2.2 release (very soon) you can't install apps on the SD card. The internal memory varies depending on what ROM it comes with (branded, unbranded etc), but its less than 200MB on android 2.1. Not much.

    I got about 147Mb free on my phone when I first got it and still have around 30Mb free.

    You should get a fair few apps on before you start running low. A lot are only a few hundred Kb's. You can back them up to the SD card using a file manager called Astro, this way you can uninstall an app if you need the space and then easily re-install it later again using Astro without having to redownload.

    You could be waiting up to about 3 months for 2.2 to be released so no point waiting, when it comes out it will alert you so you can update.

    I've got 50 installed at the moment. Some proper apps and some stupid things, one I do have as well is copilot GPS that takes about 20Mb of space by itself so if I didn't have that then probably up to another 40 more would fit in that space easily.

    When updates are available you get a notification at the top of the screen. This is also true for apps you download from the market.

    Yeah Google maps & Navigations built in but you need to be connected to data for the maps when choosing your route. Have a browse around there are a fewe threads on how much data it uses. CoPilot the maps are stored on sd card so there are no ongoing data costs.
