Why only 256MB of RAM?

    256MB of RAM on a high-end phone is so 2009 with phones like the Palm Pre, iPhone 3GS and Motorola Droid all featuring it. I was really disappointed to read that the HTC Bravo would only include 256MB of RAM. Just looking at HTC's 2010 lineup, every single one of those phones has 256MB of RAM. You would think their flagship model would include more. Even the HTC HD2 had 448MB of RAM. I was expecting 448MB or 512MB, which would really amplify the speed of the Snapdragon processor, but this is the one thing that may prevent me from buying. What a bummer.

    Other sources indicate more RAM than that. They may have increased it in the final release. Time will tell. Don't fret yet.

    Look on the bright side. 320 will probably be like the new quad core processor with 16GB of ram on the new mac compared with the 488 and a windows product. Heck the HD2 is probably wanting 1GB to run win mo! ha ha ha ha

    Don't quote me exactly but I think I read somewhere that the spec discrepancy floating around has to do with the snapdragon processor having 60MB of RAM built-in (or somthing along those lines) for some particular function and not general use. The phone still has 256MB of RAM accompanying the processor, but because of this additional RAM, they quote the total memory as ~320MB (though it adds to 316MB). Dunno. Someone can clarify or provide more detail if they know or find it. Can't remember where I saw this.

    Wrong.

    Reality is not what one makes believe it is.
