The most horrible thing on Android is about App Partition! You can only install Game and App on Internal Memory which is horribly low. With Android 2.2 and above, you can install them on Micro SD Card, somehow, you must re-format the partition for Programs. And sometimes, the SD card has Bad Sector issue, and your app data will "fly with the wind"!
