ICS RAM Footprint
will ics have a larger ram footprint? i wonder/worry since i only show 54mb free ram most of the time. maybe the ns4g is not the best phone to run ics on? i know memory mgmt is more effective with android, but all the restarting of apps makes it seem laggy...pardon me, i seem to have lost my mind in a reading comprehension accident...

also, i note an "available ram" discrepancy between widgetsoid and Android running ram use.
maybe after ics, i will root, keep it stock, and try to prevent some apps from self starting.

Re: ICS RAM Footprint
I don't get how you only have 54MB available without having too many of the large applications. I have quite a few applications on my Nexus S, I just checked and currently have 126MB's free. I'm wondering if it is a combination of killing apps that are "running" all the time and maybe a rogue app or two. You should probably give us a list of the applications you run in order to further help you.
Also, PLEASE read this article that was posted in September, it may clear up some things regarding memory management in Android.
