dont get suprised, desire have 8gb internal memory(same as htc incredible) but it is yet to get unlocked.
this phone have only 80s MB of internal memory(less considering it is a flagship) and app and games can only be installed on internal memory

TY ph1, I really like this phone but in this case I gues the iPhone would be better for me :... moreas for the htc incredible being really expensive, you can judge for urself. its available to preorder at verizon for $199 if u get 2yr plan or $269 if u get 1yr plan. the site also says the full retail price is $529. i guess this is the unlocked version or pay monthly version. idk much about plans as i currently dont live in US, but i wud guess its around iphone range. also dont forget that iphone has a max fixed capacity of 32gb. the htc incredible allows for u to store all music, movies, pictures... on the sd card so u cud effectively end up with 8gb of memory reserved just for apps. i think thats enuf.
getting a new phone is usually a hard choice and with the iphone 4g coming in june 2010, the choice for u might get harder. i hv usually preferred hardware to software tho as software can always be updated/upgraded but hardware (on phones) cannot. u must buy a newer phone if u want a certain hardware feature thats missing.
ok i have just contacted HTC about the next Android update whether that will allow users to save apps on memory card. let's see if she gets back to me~
TY ph1, I really like this phone but in this case I gues the iPhone would be better for me :(. The Galaxy S isn't even in shops yet and the Incredible will probably be incredibly expensive. The Desire here is 300 euros for a 2 year extension (about 13 euros a month) and the Iphone 3GS 16Gb is about the same for a 21 euros a month but with the 4G in sight maybee the iPhone 3gs will be cheaper. Either this or hope for an android memory card mombo jumbo :P
75mb to 125mb did we nee many app on android phone? and the app abou all is free... ????
if only HTC would stand out and make official announcements on whether the next update on Android would allow saving apps on memory card... if it does, there will be no doubt it's gonna boost its sales of Desires by multiple folds~~~
Andrei, 22 Apr 2010So if I want to install a game I only have the 70-120 Mb?the current version of android doesnt allow u to save apps to sd card so ur stuck with the internal memory of the phone. yeah u r stuck with pretty much the amount u indicated, but u hv 3 options:
- live with it, only download essential apps and store everything else to sd card. hope that newer versions of android will support saving to sd card soon.
- root ur device (the android equivalent of jailbreaking) but this voids the warranty.
- buy another phone with larger internal memory. if u think this is the best option i wud advise u to look at:
* htc incredible (8gb) available: april 29 (in US)
* samsung i9000 galaxy (8/16gb) available: Q2
* samsung i8520 (16gb) available: idk
* samsung i7500 (8gb) available: now, but slow cpu and low ram
* motorola dext (1gb) available: now, but slow cpu
* motorola mt710 (4gb) available: now
* motorola xt701 (8gb) available: idk
* or my personal favorite: htc evo 4 (idk how much internal memory it has but its rumored to hv 1gb of ram! and some estimated 16gb or even 32gb internal memory) available: sometime in june (according to rumors and only for sprint in US)
the choice is urs. good luck
Come on guys. Does any1 know if I can or can't install games on the memory card? I've seen A friend's iPhone and it had alot of games and applications. For applications I gues there is enough room. But what about games? I've seen Assasin's Creed on iPhone and it looked big(120 Mb). I wanted to buy the phone today but I want to be able to play some games on it. If I can watch movies from the memory card why can't I install games there? :(

Jet, 22 Apr 2010I have this phone - it's amazing but what good is all this technology when the Android OS only... moreyah it is quite a problem for this phone... let's hope there is either really an app (rumoured appsaver) which will allow users to save apps on memory card or HTC's next firmware update will resolve this issue!
I have this phone - it's amazing but what good is all this technology when the Android OS only allows apps to be installed on the phone's memory and not the SD card! The phone only has 512 MB and the Android OS drains about 85% of it - this leaves about 75 MB for apps!!! Very annoyed!
Latest news from Voda UK. I was awaiting an N900 but they have told me that they will no longer be stocking it due to hardware issues [usb socket falling out springs to mind!] so I will be returning to the Desire and look forward to Monday afternoon when it will hopefully arrive all shiny and new.
Anonymous, 22 Apr 2010if want lower price, wait abou 3 to 4 month the price wil go down but i cant wait so long ;)Me too!!! I cant wait anymore! i am ready to fork out anything from 500-800!!!
Lyon, 22 Apr 2010i think 500++ is an underestimate already..... i am afraid it will be higher than that!if want lower price, wait abou 3 to 4 month
the price wil go down but i cant wait so long ;)
Anonymous, 22 Apr 2010i thin it will not higher than 500++ the iphone n htc hd2,x10 all abou 500++ with 2year cont...it really depends on what their pricing stragey is, not just abt the mobile phone itself... if the demand is high, i see no reason why they wont charge a higher price just to skiim more profits for a few months after its launch T_T
