As I understand it, the internal SD card is not used if you plug in an external SD card. If so, is it possible to use the entire ~2.75 GB for internal storage? I'm just thinking it would be nice to not let the ~750 MB go to waste. You would have to warn people that this would mean that you couldn't take any photos or add any music without an external SD card, though.

Also, is there really just one memory "chip" (probably part of the SoC) in the G300? I'm coming from the non-Android Nokia N900 which had two different types of memory inside - a fast small one (256 MB NAND) for the OS and a much larger one (32 GB eMMC) for data storage which wasn't as fast.

What type/size of memory chip does the G300 use?

Wonder if the internal sd card can be expanded to something bigger?

Like mounting an external SD card to the internal one? So if you had a 8gb SD card you would have 8750mb and 2gb data? That would be cool....
