    I know that we have more app memory but I've always wondered how many apps we can actually install in the phone? Anyone have a rough estimate?

    Its hard to say. Because apps are different in size. Very rarely would anyone use all the space by just downloading apps. I would say 500+

    500+? Wow I didn't know it was that many. And here I was worried about running too many apps.

    500 seems wayyy wayy off haha.
    Figure 100 to 200 apps. Most are a half mb to a full mb

    (Of coarse this ranges)

    Does having a lot of apps installed, but not in use, slow the phone down?

    well, the storm can hold about 100 apps. The tour can hold twice as much, so maybe a 200? Some apps download to the sd card (like slacker radio).

    Only if you run low in device memory.

    Yep. I was being cautious not to put too many apps but I guess it's ok.

    Avg size of an app is probably less than 500kb. 190 mb total on the device. 500 kb apps would be 380 total. But I doubt there's even that many. We need not worry about space just yet :-)

    No more than any other blackberry with an sd card. With the new app world I can archive all the apps to my SD card....woooohooo!

    How would one go about doing that? As in archiving? Also... it says I have like 156 megs used already... I only have like 15 apps.. they're all pretty small.. would it be also the music taking up the space?

    how do you actually dl apps to your sd card? i think my phone mem is already full bc when i went to dl an app last night, it gave me a msg i had less than 5mb of space left or something along those lines...but i only have like five apps on it! although i think the problem is when they transferred pics etc from my old phone they dumped they all on my bb's mem...so i'm trying to fig out how to get everything from my phone to my sd card or comp...

    It will hold more than 5 apps. Plug in your phone to your computer, turn on mass storage mode. You should then be able to navigate the folders of your BB and move the pictures off of the phone memory onto your SD card.

    I have probably have about 25-30 apps installed.

    I'm curious where this 190 Megs came from. Everything else I've seen said 250 total.
