FAQ: RIM Gives A Lesson On Maximizing Free Space and Battery Power

I have to say that the BlackBerry OS has less lag than the other smartphone OS’s but in some regards it is underpowered. It seems that RIM has taken this to heart and released a Knowledgebase article on how to optimize your BlackBerry so that it performs at the best of its capablity. Check out RIM’s advice on how to keep your flash memory available and how to maximize your battery life. The most interesting part of the Very long FAQ is the following table listing how much space each item on your BlackBerry takes. :
