    I've got an 8GB iPhone with 2GB free. What do you think the memory requirements will be for the new software, much less the add on apps? Many iPhone users I know have stuffed their devices with so much stuff there simply isn't a lot of free space.

    I think the new software will be on par with the 1.0 series software, maybe an extra 50-100 mb, but this is probably on the higher end. As for apps, those will vary widely depending on what the apps do.

    I doubt Apple will steal much or even any of the NAND music/video storage space for use for the OS. I'm more worried about applications running slower due to using more RAM. I think I read somewhere about the 2.0 software running slowly. Sure they were talking about a beta version, but they said it was significantly slower.

    Where did you find that article? I would love to read that in depth. This is the first time I heard anything about the performance of software 2.0.

    From winandmac.com "this recent beta is not stable and slow"

    I don't think that's where I originally read it; that's just what I found after a quick search.

    Very interesting article. I'm sure all of this will be fixed in the release version.

    Well I bet they added more ram in the next iPhone as well. Hopefully that will mean that you can run Safari without it crashing as often as right now I find that if I have more than a couple pages open it seems crashy.
