Guys,
The Arnova 10 G2 has 512 MB Ram, but if you look in settings you see only 256 MB.
And if you look in Memory Booster, it says that i'm using more than 300 MB ram without having a program open.
So I think the tablet only uses 256 MB of his 512 MB Ram.

(Sorry for my bad english, I hope it is not to bad ;))

Interesting; the gen8 archos similarly shows half of it's ram avail in settings/applications/running (128 instead of 256). I am guessing Android reserves half the ram for something else, like the linux kernel or libraries of generic utility subprograms. There are layers of built in programs that support applications.

I don't know - maybe you can google android architecture memory management with better luck than me. Sometimes they do tricks with sharing use of memory anyway, which you cannot detect by the settings numbers.

Gingerbread has been called more memory intensive than Froyo. Maybe it is to support the below stuff quoted from wikipedia. I certainly see an improvement in the gaming parts. Has anyone tried the voip?

2.3 Gingerbread (open-source) refined the user interface, improved the soft keyboard and copy/paste features, improved gaming performance, SIP support (VoIP calls), and added support for Near Field Communication.
