I think that we have to leave atleast 10 megabytes. JFFS2 would need ~1M 
due to garbage collector having problems when filesystem is full, then 
user data need space too. My SonyEricsson k750i phone reports 29MB of 
free space in phone and 35MB (of 64MB) on card.

Apps will need to be prepared to give user option 'store to phone'/'store 
on card' without showing any other questions about it.

Normal software pack for phone should be:

- settings
- PIM (contacts, calendar, todos, notes, today, sms, alarm)
- media player
- audio recorder
- web/wap browser
- simple file manager
- calculator
- 2-3 games

Speaking about sqlite... I would like to see sqlite3 only apps. If someone 
work on new application then avoid sqlite2.
