Default Storage breakdown

Anyone know what is the storage breakdown of Xoom?

We know it has 32 GB internal memory (storage) ... AND it has external SD card (promised).

But, how is this 32 GB internal memory layout?

Is it now all 32 GB for "apps"? That's a waste of space!

Or is it partitioned, one partition for apps and other partition for storage?

Or is it free-for-all for both "apps" and "storage"?

No Xoom in display at MWC Barcelona?

The app storage will probably be a small section cut out of the 32gb internal memory. It will probably be at least 2gb. with 29gb something remaining for free available space for video, music, etc.

You wont be able to access or see this "space" as it'll be a system "folder" that only Android can manipulate.

What makes you think that the 2GB will be shared with the apps? Is this common for Android? Since 2.2 you could install on the memory card. If this is so, why couldn't we just install on the larger partition?

I kinda wrote that wrong

The Xoom has 8gb internal and 32 external sdcard.

The app storage will be cut out of the 8gb internal memory me thinks.

Huh, I thought it was 32GB of internal storage with an SD expansion slot. Having us 'pay' for a 32GB card doesn't sound right. Give us the 8GB and let us choose what size SD card we go for.

Anyhow, breakdown is unknown, we'll have to wait and see.
