    Does anyone know when the android market will increase the max. file size to 4 gigs? I kind of find it annoying whenever I have to download a game, and then be prompted to download the actual game from another server that isn't always working, because the file is too large. In addition, one of my favorite developers says he isn't updating battleheart because doing so will bring the file size over the limit.

    I remember hearing about this earlier in the year, any new developments?

    4gb apps? Never seen one that large unless I'm misunderstanding your question.

    Believe poster is talking about the 4gig limit on the data plans and then the fact that most apps require additional download eating into the 4gig limit. Most apps let you know about the additional download so bout the best I can suggest is to make sure u have wifi available. I did hear that Verizon might open the unlimited data for a limited time but like I said that's a rumor.
