I got my Kindle Fire at launch and in general am loving it. But one major thing is bothering me: Amazon seems to have hard-wired the Kindle Fire to limit Application storage to only 1.17gb, whereas "Internal Storage" has up to 5.37gb. Now since I mainly use my Kindle for Apps, web browsing, checking email, and some music, I would prefer to have more storage allocated to Apps, and less to all that "other" stuff.
Currently my Kindle is warning me that Application Storage is low (112mb free of 1.17gb), and suggesting that I delete some apps to free up storage. But I don't WANT to delete apps, when I have 3.23gb of "Internal Storage" sitting there unused!
Why can't Amazon allow us to allocate our total available storage (6.5gb usable) to whatever we want? Why am I limited to a measly 1.17gb for apps, when just one single app (Puzzle Quest 2, which is excellent) takes up 250mb alone? Come on Amazon, why be so restrictive with how we configure out Kindle Fires? Let US decide what we want to do with the storage, instead of setting up arbitrary limits like this! Its bad enough that we have so little storage to begin with (and NO SD CARD SLOT), but when you put this restriction on top of everthing else, its pretty sad.
Anyone know of a way to reallocate some of the "Internal Storage" to "Application Storage", or are we just screwed when it comes to that?
