    I thought this phone has 512 RAM but we are only utilzing 256? what is up with that? When they do the OTA for froyo, will that build have the kernal or build for the other 256? I am a little disapointed that they advertise this phone as a 512 mb... or are other resourcings using the other 256mb?

    I read that there should be a high mem fix of some sort in the OTA I believe. I don't think the leaked 2.2 has this yet though.

    Do you have an app that shows system info? Or is it in settings somewhere?

    My DX seems to be using all the memory,

    I have System Panel and it says 59M available and 88% of total memory used.

    Doing the math, that's about 490MB total. Not sure where the little extra is (could just be that available RAM isn't rounded), but it's pretty close.
