As great as that is, we can't call it a confirmation. At this point it's just a rumor, even with the screen cap showing 2gb, it's still a rumour. I'm waiting for January 30, 2013 for all the confirmed details.
EDIT: This is the 2gb screen cap that i was talking about: http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...m-more-758986/S5

Re: BB10 RAM confirmed
This is not confirmation from RIM. You can consider it to be official confirmation if RIM twitter account tweet the spec.
And actually, the press release will come first at blackberry website.sent from anywhere

I didn't know that (about the BB10 phones having 2GB RAM)... I guess I wasn't paying attention.
Anyone (Devs, RIM insiders, etc) know if the 2GB represents an actual NEED rather than a "runs better with 2GB" situation?
Several months ago, I posted this: If during the development of BB10 it is ever realised that BB10 needs more than 1GB of RAM to run, then RIM will back away from their promise to bring BB10 to the Playbook so fast the air behind them will close with a bang!
So I hope the 2GB is a "nice to have" rather than "needed to run", coz I'd really like to be wrong in my prediction!Proud Member of the PlayBook Beta Test Team (Since June 2011)

It is likely not a need, but for multitasking, having more RAM definitely helps to speed things up as well as prevent applications from running out of memory.
Kind of like having a bigger basket or a bigger cart at the supermarket. You COULD just keep running back and forth between the shelf and the cash register picking up stuff, or you can just get a big basket/cart and keep throwing stuff in your basket. With RAM, you can just keep suspending applications, or throwing application memory onto the storage drive, or you can keep it all in memory in which you can just quickly switch back and forth.
The sweet spot is where you have just enough RAM to support the maximum number of applications. Beyond that, any additional RAM added is useless. For most desktop/laptop computers, the average user will optimally need 4GB. So for a phone to have 2GB, is pretty decent.

This increase in ram is another reason why I suspect we won't be seeing an early release of bb10 for playbook, they will have more time to optimise memory usage when things have calmed down a little after the first two launches.
