    Ever since I did the OTA upgrade i notice less free space on my device - about 10mb, on average. Even after I dump the cache kept for all my apps, I cant get it down to what it was before the upgrade.

    I noticed an improvement in internal mem free space (about 7MB more I think) immediately following the 2.1 OTA (from stock 1.5).

    I noticed less internal memory as well, but I also noticed what appears to be better memory management. I have twice the number of apps that I had on 1.5 and I still have the same amount of memory available...after clearing cache of course.

    I just wish they would allow us to save apps to the SD card or invent an external hard drive watch.

    I also noticed less memory. I had about 130mb free now it's about 119mb. I don't understand why, but it runs faster and it runs smoother, so I'm not really complaining.
