    Hey guys, I have just noticed my desire memory size is not same as advertised.

    On HTC site, it states
    ======
    Desire
    ROM: 512 MB
    RAM: 576 MB

    Wildfire
    ROM: 512 MB
    RAM: 384 MB
    ======


    I have "Android System Information" App installed and app says

    Desire
    Max Internal Memory: 147.62Mo
    RAM: 398Mo

    Wildfire
    Max Internal Memory: 175.12Mo
    Ram 313Mo

    So first why is internal memory not as big as advertise, and further more why the hell is it smaller then wildfire when it is meant to be same? Internal memory reported is not free space but max space if anybody is wondering.

    The internal memory contains the operating system and bundled apps. It's a bit like when you buy a PC with Windows on it, it takes up some of your hard drive. The difference, and the cause of confusion here, is that it's not really showing you the maximum space, it's showing you the maximum space that is available to the user.
