    Will be getting this phone on Sprint since ATT really has messed me over for the last time, however I noticed that the on board memory is 512mb compared to the Bold 9000 that has 1gig. They show on Blackberry.com that the Bold 9650 will come with a 2 gig memory card. Does that mean you can save programs to the memory card? Really curious about this. Why would they put less on board memory on a phone that is nearly 2 years newer then its predecessor?

    I think the BlackBerry website has an error re. the 9000. It is my understanding that on board memory is 128 MB. It probably originally shipped with a 1 GB media card and someone who was maintaining the site misunderstood.

    The new 9650 will have 512 MB which is twice as much as the current champ, the 9700.

    But you still won't be able to put apps on the media card.

    I wondered if there was a typo. That is why I asked the question here.

    the Bold 9650 has the most amount of app memory out of any Blackberry ever made. normal blackberrys have 256mb of memory, and only 128mb in a Bold 9000, this 9650 will have 512mb of memory... RIM probably doubled the memory so that OS 6.0 will work without a problem when it comes out next quarter

    Oh yeah they would have to increase memory to run the OS smoothly. Maybe Kevin can get in touch with RIM and let them know of the mistake on their own website. LOL

    Onboard memory and application memory are two different things. The 9000 has 1GB of onboard memory because it didn't ship with a memory card. But that memory isn't used for applications. It has 128 MB of application memory.

    Can not spot an error at the BlackBerry website. Here, have a look: BlackBerry - Bold Smartphones - The Bold BlackBerry Smartphones 9650, 9700, 9000
    Bold™ 9000

    > 128 MB onboard
    memory, 1 GB internal media memory
    Stated very clear in my opinion. Internal memory for media. Not applications. Onboard memory is there for applications. The other two Bold devices (Bold 9700 & 9650) come pre-installed with a Media Card, but have less internal memory for media.

    Well I learned something today.

    If you use the Compare Smartphones feature, and pick the 8330 (for example) and the 9000, and then expand Memory, it says the 8330 has 96 MB Onboard AND 96 MB Flash. It says the 9000 has 1 GB Onboard and 128 MB Flash. I know the 8330 has only 96 MB total. So I have always assumed that they were being inconsistent about how they state the memory in this chart.

    With so many models out there they're bound to make their own mistakes as well in addition to confusing customers

    9000 has 128 MB application memory(for games,programmes) and 1GB on board memory(for video,mp3 files etc ) and expandable memory card support,
    9700 has 256 MB application memory(for games,programmes) and expandable memory card support,
    9650 has 512 MB application memory (for games,programmes) and expandable memory card support
    After reloading OS %70 of application memory is missing and rest of it is usable..
    For example, as you reload OS 5 for 9000 you will get max.56 MB space for appplications.and that's always complained issue for consumers..
    Same scenerio for 9700, you'll probably get 140 MB for applications..
    Same scenerio for 9650, you'll probably get 350 MB free space for applications..
    But I'm not sure will free space be enough for applications after reloading OS 6...
    If OS 6 needs more space for itself, it won't be much more different from 9700's capacity..
    Whatever happens I do sure that it will have more enough space for applications than 9000..
