I think you're confusing memory (RAM) with storage space.

no hes just referring to the 9 page limit in 2.0 for apps..

If you upgrade to 3.0 it bumps it to 11 pages.

The app limit is because of limited memory (RAM), I think the OP is thinking memory means storage space.

The app limit is just stupid and senseless. Why do you think that there is any relation to the available RAM? An installed app doesn't need ANY RAM!

the RAM needed for the icons should be very small.
Storage space is there more than enough if you dont have to much videos and music on the device.
i personally use the ipod touch for playing and internet.For music i use a sansa clip.

the springboad stay in RAM all time, and should keep some limit of RAM for system and other applications.

Indeed it seems senseless to me, but it's the only thing I can think of. I don't know how it works so there may be something else we haven't considered.
