    Availalbe memory is way less than 1GB

    Hey all,

    I am a bit confused as to why my available memory seems to indicate I have about 300MB or so of RAM? The specs read 1GB. Is that 1GB shared with apps installed? I thought the 16GB internal space was for that, and the 1GB would be purely used by running apps? I can't seem to find anything indicating that installed apps take up from the 1GB of space, but even so, I don't have but a few apps other than the default ones?

    I am considering rooting my TF just to remove many of the useless apps I'll never use. Anyone done this?

    Thanks.

    It does have a GB of ram, however just like your computer the OS(Android), and any apps or services running in the background will use up those resources when they need them. A bunch of us have been through high water to convince people on the Incredible to quit micromanaging their phones and let Android do it's job. My suggestion would be if it runs fine don't worry about it, some of the memory is marked as used since it is cached to open an app quicker however if something that's active needs the memory Android will flush it out of cache to make room available to an application that needs it.

    If you want to find out what's going on in the background, get "System Panel Lite" from the market it will show you all you care to know about.
