Came across this interesting post on the 123MB of Ram in the Apad:

“1) I thought these units had 2gb of flash and 128mb for system? when i check settings sd card and mid storage it says 1gb flash and 65mb mid system storage - is that right? 65mb seems small for android - comments appreciated!”

1GB of the Flash is usable, the other 1GB are used by Android as a SWAP partition (virtual RAM).
You only have 65MB left because all applications are installed into the 128MB. Just install a few more and see it go down even more. The manufacturer claims on their website that applications are installed onto the SD card, but that is not the case. I guess we will have to wait until we can get Root on this device and use A2SD ourselves. Smiley
