  1. I love this app, but with my aging Storm running OS 5, I have no extra RAM to play with. I cringe with every notice of an update, and every updated is a scary proposition as I am being squeezed out of RAM. I’ve deleted all the apps I “sort-a need” so now I am faced with the prospects of deleting apps I do need.


    Why doesn’t RIM fix this *HUGE* annoyance and allow us to install & run apps in device memory?!? I agree apps need to run in RAM, but they don’t need to be installed in RAM as well. Also, I see the security risks of running apps from removable memory such as SD cards, but device memory is not removable. There is no security risk there.

    Imagine if RIM made this fix, we would not be limited to 512 MB RAM on a BlackBerry for apps. App World would actually get far more business too! Just thinking of App World is distressing to me as I can’t get any more new apps, and there are several apps I cannot afford to upgrade as, in many cases, the upgrade is a much larger file.

    I am concerned about the 512MB available to Torch users. Is that really sufficient? BB6 takes almost 1/2 of that. Folks who have 256MB, such as 9700 users, also want to run BB6? There won’t be any memory left for apps.
