I was just taking a look at the memory specs on the 4 new BlackBerry devices that have come out recently. The BlackBerry Bold, BlackBerry Pearl Flip, BlackBerry Storm, and BlackBerry Curve 8900 all have 128 MB of Flash Memory and 1GB of RAM. Personally, I would have liked to have seen at least 256 MB of Flash but I can live with 128 MB.
1 GB of RAM, on the other hand, is definitely kind of light compared to the iPhone which has 4 GB at worst. RIM trys to counteract this by shipping the BlackBerry Storm with an 8 GB microSD card, however, you can do little more than store pictures and media on the removable memory in a BlackBerry. You can’t even store contacts outside of internal memory.
The processing power of the latest generation of BlackBerry devices is pretty good and should allow for some really cool and feature rich applications (games) to run on them. Really cool and feature rich applications, however, tend to be larger in size and it doesn’t take very many of them to eat up all the free space on your BlackBerry. This is why I think that RIM should allow BlackBerrys to run applications from microSD.
