So I have kind of a stupid question (sometimes - really, I'm not sure I have any other kind) ... If I understand their memory system correctly - why didn't Motorola just do the Bionic a la iPhone and give a 16GB or 32GB version that happened to be running Android ??? (does that make sense ???) ... If we're not going to have some control of where our stuff is stored (even something as silly as pictures / video for that matters) - why even the option for an upgradeable external card ???
Can someone *please* tell me what big giant glaring like the sun point I've missed here ??? And I'm sure I have - it's probably as obvious as the nose on my face - but at the moment, I just can't see it ...
(and before anyone falls over and dies - I love my phone - I'm not a phone basher - *knocking wood* I haven't had any problems with it like some unfortunately have ... )
My uncle had a rabbit's foot for 25years ... The other foot was normal ...
TatDroid has it correct (4GB, 4GB, and 8GB internal and a 16GB ext) which has become a SERIOUS issue for me especially with all of my Gameloft games which typically have large data folders that must reside in the area known as "SD Card" which up until now has always been a "real" physical SD Card (for me, a Sandisk 32GB card). But on the Bionic, the area known as "SD Card" is really it's internal 8GB of space WHICH IS NOT BIG ENOUGH when games have been storing data folders on my 32GB card all this time!!
Dumb-Ass Motorola (as much as I LOVE this phone) did NOT consider this would cause a conflict within the system. To suddenly name an internal area "SD Card" when there has already been an area/physical volume all along named "SD Card" is ridiculous. But for the area to only be 8GB??? How the hell are we supposed to fit all of the info from your 32GB card into a now 8GB space?!!!
If you are having similar issues with these partitions like I have, then I strongly suggest giving Motorola's Tech Support a call and voice your complaint. I have been in touch with their level 3 support team weekly, so they are surely aware of the problem, but still need to know how many people are affected by this and it should prompt them to get it fixed even sooner. Call them at 1-800-734-5870.
