Nice device all round. If it wasn't for the no wi-fi thing I'd be all over it...

But now there's this whole uproar over the frikkin size of the /var partition for apps -- with some people reporting FIFTY is the top number of apps they've been able to install! This is just frikkin unbelievable. Who wants just 50 frikkin apps?!

It isn't so much a matter of the number of apps as the total size of the partition which weighs in at around 253MB. Some people hit that size limitation in about fifty apps, some hit it as sixty, some hit it at less. I usually have around fifty apps - give or take - when the App Catalog starts complaining about a lack of memory. But I can still install many more apps through Preware.

So there is already a work around for this problem but Palm hasn't implemented it yet in the App Catalog. It seems pretty silly that they still haven't fixed this problem at a time when they are starting to ramp up the app store.
