    With the app store coming next month, i can see myself filling my memory of pretty quickly. I am already at 30 MB or so of free space after a fresh reboot

    i have a bunch of programs installed

    viigo
    wsj
    weatherbug
    2 themes
    storm saber
    stormlock
    bolt
    opera
    poynt
    twitterberry
    gmm
    slacker
    bofa
    solytare
    stormsketc
    bbalerts


    and i am sure a few more that i am missing...

    We need to access our media cards or at least the 1gb of space that is included onboard in the storm otherwise this might turn into an epic FAIL!

    what do you think?

    What is an epic phail is that you cannot run apps from the 1GB of onboard memory. You're limited to the 128MB for OS and apps... nice huh?

    Good to see you've sworn off the horse tranquilizers or whatever it was that had you so mellow for a while.

    But I'm inclined to agree. The whole of the onboard storage should be available for this, and let the microsd card be for music, photos, etc.

    that would be awesome. they should probably try to get it done before the app store is opened

    Without having seen the OS code, and knowing there's a huge chunk of it I probably wouldn't understand even if I did... It seems to me like they could make a simple API hook that Storm apps could take advantage of that lets them run from outside the main 128MB. It would ONLY work for apps that had some special compile time flag set to make use of this API, so legacy apps would go inside that 128MB of main storage. At least assuming legacy app support is the reason they're still clinging to this archaic design. If there's some other reason, then it might well blow a giant hole in my idea.
