    So what do put on your big one?

    Advertisement



    So we can now have 4GB or more of flash in our later BB's.

    What do people actually use all that space for, other than the warm fuzzy feeling that it's there just because it *can* be put there?

    A. As a generic USB drive using mass stoage mode, for data that can't actually be used by the BB iteself? It's a shame that the BB can't encrypt/decrypt data transfered over mass storage mode, or it would be an encrypted USB drive (quite useful).

    B. For photos (but that's a LOT of 2Mpx photos...)?

    C. For music (but what does using a BB as a MP3 player do for its battery life, and how good is the media player for managing a LOT of tracks)?

    D. Something else?

    I generally use mine for mass storage which includes photos. Really its just nice to have the space if I want it, although realisticially i dont use all of it.
    "T-Dub"
    T- Mo: BB 9700, 8900, 8220
    Sprint: BB 8330, 8830, 8130, 8703, 7250

    But there's a beautiful view of the end of the world from the pier.....

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ it drains it at a bit faster speed than just sitting there I'd guess as much as a phone call, but I have an extended life battery so no worrys for me.

    I use it as a removeable storage drive to sneak confidential and private information out of the office.

    Kidding.

    But I do carry around a version of the Desktop Manager Install and 2 Operating System installs on my MicroSD as if I am onsite with a client, I don't have to carry around a usb drive and a BlackBerry™.

    Have you ever had an issue with any PC not seeing the BB in mass storage mode if that PC has never had DM installed? Ie is it as reliable as a 'real' USB drive in that respect?

    Ironically, though, the USB cable for the BB is about the same size as a separate USB memory stick/drive!
