    The data and cache for your apps also uses the same space. It's not just the apps themselves.

    If you are rooted, (or...maybe this works on non rooted as well as I think the /data/ partition is read/write...dunno) then you can fire up something like Root Explorer and go into your /data/data directory and be more sselective to what data gets cleared. I do this for browser data as I hate pressing clear data from Manage Applications because I lose my form data and bookmarks. Look around and experiment. Don't worry about breaking anything as the worst you could do in that directory is delete all data for all your apps. Even if youj deleted everything in that folder, it will rebuild itself (might have to reboot). l

    You can also try moving your remaining apps to your SD card. I just had to do the same thing yesterday and I moved about 15-20 apps over and i'm in good shape.
