I think it's similar to computers...ram really didn't catch up until recently. we were hitting quad core before people needed four gigs...and only so much ram was needed because windows is a memory hog. You can still get by on only four gigs most times. With as streamlined as Android is I'd say more raw horsepower before more ram. Maybe quad core phones will have two gigs. Hopefully the storage starts getting bigger... With these phones being mini computers and all Sent from my ROOTED DROID BIONIC using DROID forums!
