Actually, i don't think that is the case at all.
The specified RAM on the TP2 is 288mb - TOTAL
The specified ROM is 512mb - TOTAL
Disregard what is in use, i was talking 'totals' here.
The issues are the TP2 shows only 188mb of RAM in total (not 288)
and 277mb of 'total' Storage which is well away from the specified 512mb would you not agree..?
The reality is that the TP 2 shows only 188 of RAM, with 100+mb in use (for the OS + TFlo - which is a bloody lot!) with no apps running at all - this leaves less than 100mb to actually run apps and leaves the user with 'out of memory' issues if 2 large apps (like GPS and Photo Gallery are trying to run) - check yours by all means...
My TP2 often shows over 130mb in use - with no apps running at all - which leaves less that 60mb to run apps!! (There is an error somewhere with this device).
Unless i have the wrong end of the stick in my understanding (and i might!), this should be what we get - 512mb storage and 288mb RAM (each as totals).
Otherwise, why advertise a 512mb ROM and
288mb RAM, if noobs like me need to do the math to work out what we get for either.......?
Happy to be corrected.
