    It is partitioned, so flashing ROMs leaves your virtual sdcard alone.

    There is an exception to this, unlocking (and locking too I would assume) the bootloader does a complete wipe, including the sdcard partition. So prior to unlocking your bootloader, get everything off the phone you want. It isn't really a bad idea to make this one of the first things you do once you get your phone, that way you don't lose much.

    Is the memory partitioned (like Razr), so that so much is reserved for the OS, so much is reserved for Apps, the rest storage? Or is it all together without limits on each category?

    It is partitioned similarly at least. I am not 100% familiar with the Razr though, so it could be off but yes there is a different partition for OS.

    Code:
    1|root@android:/ # df
    df
    Filesystem             Size   Used   Free   Blksize
    /dev                   347M    32K   347M   4096
    /mnt/asec              347M     0K   347M   4096
    /mnt/obb               347M     0K   347M   4096
    /system                643M   305M   338M   4096
    /data                   28G     7G    21G   4096
    /cache                 425M     7M   418M   4096
    /factory                19M     4M    15M   4096
    /mnt/sdcard             28G     7G    21G   4096

    I believe that the internal memory of the Razr has about 3gb for apps, 8 for additional storage.

    Could you tell me which of those numbers you listed is for apps?
