I read an interesting post over on Engadget Mobile today about how Google has a plan to overcome Android’s 256 MB application storage limit. BlackBerry users are all too familiar with having virtually unlimited storage for media on removable micro SD cards but very little memory, 128 MB or less on most BlackBerry devices, to actually store and run applications from.
The issue isn’t quite as dire for Android users as it is for BlackBerry users. Only core application files need to reside within internal memory in Android. The BlackBerry, however, requires that entire applications be installed to internal memory.
