Where will the Apps be stored for EVO, 1 GB internal or MicroSD Card?
I was just wondering where Android stores their apps on the EVO. Coming from the Palm Pre, it was a problem in the beginning when they stored it in a minimal area. Now you can use the full 8GB for games and Apps for the Pre.
Does EVO and Android store the Apps on the MicroSD(at least allow the option) or is it only stored on the internal memory, which is only 1 GB, and could fill up pretty fast if big 3D games start coming to Android.
Does anyone know which it is and if it isn't using the microSD yet, will it sooner or later?

Internal memory as of right now. Google has said that they are working on allowing SD install for apps in future releases or updates but for now, it's only the internal memory which should be somewhere around 750mb on the EVO (after OS running on some of that 1gig)

i've heard somewhere that android apps actually take up less space than apps on the iphone. 1gb of internal is actually more than most android phones (even the incredible can't use it's 8gb for apps it just has 512mb of rom... nexus one has 512mb also).
and yes, you will be able to use sd cards for apps in froyo but i wouldn't expect froyo on the evo right away.
