    I was researching whether I should have bought the iPhone, or the G1. Happily, I am with a G1, and is much better than I expected. But, when researching both app stores, I noticed the iphone could only hold up to nine pages. (sounds like a lot, but I imagine that can go fast). So when tinkering with my G1, I wondered, does this have an app limit as well, and if so, how much. Or is it just a question of how much memory is on the phone. Thanks.

    The current limit is 72MB ... however the G1 will start complaining(notifying) of LowMemory around the 7-8MB remaining point. I currently have 203 apps and a constant LowMemory Alert in my Status bar ....

    So I would say it is not a number but a function of memory that is the current limiting factor. As Swizz states ... most of us are waiting for google to fix that issue by allowing app storage on the SDCard...
