Yeah its a deceptive practice that the on-board PC graphics industry started. While it does have 1GB of RAM its not all available to apps, as far as im concerned the device doesn't therefore have 1GB of RAM in any true sense.

The rest is reserved for the device's components for them to actually work.

Thats not a good reason. 'Reserved' means apps dont have the full volume to access. My PC has 8GB of physical RAM, and 8GB can be used.

As long as the device works as it should...and it does wonderfully here. The very same happens with storage devices. Look it up on Google, this has been discussed in several places already.

Edit: A small example link.

Well 'wonderfully' is a matter of opinion, the 8.9 is a laggy old mess frankly, but its serviceable enough for the price i paid (which was a lot less than its launch price).

Barely laggy with AOKP and ADW-EX. Oh and I paid the launch price.
