    Most apps cannot see this, and I doubt they ever will unless this becomes more commonplace. What do you do with your internal storage? I have my camera set to store there, but i have a slideshow app i use when charging and it only reads the SD card so I move the "keepers" to SD. My mp3's and divx movies are also on SD. So out of 6.6gb internal storage I usually have about 6.5gb free. :)

    How do you use yours? And do you feel app developers will ever write apps to access the internal storage?

    I use my internal storage for videos. My video app is still HTC, (Skyraider 2.5.2 vanilla) and that's about 3GB worth.

    I don't use it at all - but then I don't store movies or music on my phone either

    i'm like Argent. I don't use it either, and rarely store any media on my phone except for the pictures I've taken.

    All my computing machines always run fast cause I never use the the storage to it's full capabilities.

    I have my ringtones and some MP3's on there but most of it is free. I should probably start making better use of it :p

    I keep in my photo's on the SD Card (figure they are safer there if the phone just happens to die before I can back up any pictures I took).

    I use BeyondPod as by podcast manager. It stores all my podcast (audio/Video) on the internal storage.

    Similarly I put my DoggCatcher podcasts onto the internal Memory. My assumption is it's easier on the battery than accessing an external card. I Listen to podcasts enough that I figured it would be with some battery savings if it exists :)

    I've never used a phone's internal storage, mostly because all of my previous devices had no useful amount over 2GB, but I still don't know if I would keep anything on there. Not because it's bad, but for some reason I just like keeping it on the card.

    if I were to move my music there, say 4 Gb, would that slow down the phone's performance? (I would like to free up space on my SD card)

    Yea this is what I do but thinking I should put a few more things on there as it is kinda waisted space.

    no, it wont. to my knowledge, the system isn't even installed to that storage space. it has it's own limited storage space like other android phones "without internal storage".

    even if they did share the same storage space, with flash memory on android, you wouldn't notice the same type of performance difference you would as if you were running windows on a hdd.

    When you connect to the computer as disk drive it's the second removeable drive that pops up in "mycomputer". I moved my movies from the puny 2GB card to the unused internal storage. Waiting for a deal on at least a 16GB card.

    Since I am a fellow Rochesterian I would like to clear this up by telling you that the amount of storage ( hard disk drive or flash ) you use on any computing device will have no effect on the machine's speed unless you are using extremely close to 100% on windows XP or older machine. The only reason you will notice a slight performance dropoff when approaching 100% is because with windows XP and previous versions computers are set up to use a small part of the hard drive as a virtual memory page file.

    So go out there and feel free to store all you want!

    As someone who has worked in the storage industry for the past 10 years I will have to disagree with you 100%. The more of a disks capacity you use, the lower the performance. That's why the industry average for utilization is in the 30-40% range.
