Maybe they should start considering equipping phones with more than a paltry 16 GB! And now they even remove the SD card slots !?!
There are 128GB modules since 2010:

ICS is too many things changed in the framework (HWA,UI,etc) that's why its taking time and also there arent many devices that officially run ICS yet (not talking about Xda devs making AOSP, ported Roms) and the app developers need to catch up. so you might want to rethink your post or think twice before posting. thank you

for gameloft games, there's also app on market called GL to SD. it solve issue with gameloft games on phone that have /sdcard as internal non-expandable memory.
and last, you can always root your phone, install busybox, and create link between directory using mount -o bind, or symlink (symbolic links).
hope that helps.
Android apps don't always cost more than their iOS counterparts. Angry Birds, for example, will cost you 99c in the App Store, but it's free on Android. It's up to the developers on how much they want to charge.
Also don't see it as a problem unless writing a game or something. If an app uses more than 50MB, I will definitely be hesitant to download it!
Android is going more and more downhill each day. ICS at 1% adoption, each update gets taken up by less and less people. WP7 will wipe them out.

SD_card is internal memory and non expandable, and is where app2SD moves software to and from the main device storage.
Personally, I don't see this as a problem. Though I sometimes get apps from the Android Market, I prefer actually downloading the files to my PC, then installing them to my droid.
I prefer this way, because I will still have the APKs even when I get a new droid, or when someone asks me to install the software on their droid.
OT: Paid apps? No problem. A lot are available for free! :)
AnonD-27881, 06 Mar 2012wow... What happen Google? 4GB of apps limit size? and all of manufacturer of Android Phone on... morewhat kind of nonsense is that. have you actually read the article? please dont say yes as clearly you havent. it's about Google increasing their app size that they allow developers to create an app for and place it in google market (50mb previously - now 4GB) meaning that the app will still be around 50mb but the extra data that needs to come along when you donwload the app will be hosted on google servers for developers and users convenience. be so kind and read it again, if that doesnt help read until you understand what's it about. but it has nothing to do with internal phone memory which also depends on the manufacturers and not google
AnonD-27881, 06 Mar 2012wow... What happen Google? 4GB of apps limit size? and all of manufacturer of Android Phone on... moreAt least, we, Android users have the possibility of expanding our phones' memory with Micro SD, and usually, these big additonal app files are automatically stored on them... so you don't have to worry about us. Worry about your non-expandable systems.
AnonD-27881, 06 Mar 2012wow... What happen Google? 4GB of apps limit size? and all of manufacturer of Android Phone on... moreseems like you're not an android user because you have no idea what is the size of an average app.. even you don't have one, the title already says 'Google increases the app size limit for Android Market to 4GB,' and not ALL apps are not that big, there's not yet even a single app who has this size..its for future purposes only..
wow... What happen Google? 4GB of apps limit size? and all of manufacturer of Android Phone only release a minimum of 8GB Internal Storage and Maximum of 16GB Internal Storage.... Hope all of Android Fan read this and know what I mean... if they will increase size limit of apps, they also need to increase the "Internal Storage" of the Smartphone and increase the capacity of memory card up to 64GB.... so the smartphone can store more files and apps...
Very great improvement. However, I hope Google can provide download function for Youtube app. Thanks
Anonymous, 06 Mar 2012Just Android. Apple will loose.said Windows user, haha:))
Android is 3 years behind IOS...
By the time Android reaches there, IOS will be much much more ahead again...
And the reason is IOS is the creator and Android is the Copy of it...
