Memory question on new Nook

Hi

I'm a current NC owner, just bought my wife the new Nook Simple Touch. It said it comes with 2GB of storage, but I see in the device info only 236MB of space available. Is this normal or am I missing something?

Thanks much!

Re: Memory question on new Nook

The storage space on the N2E is partitioned.

 

My numbers are approximate.

 

1GB - reserved for android and the reader.

 

750 MB - reserved for B&N content.

 

250 MB - Available for user loaded (side-loaded) content.

 

Up to 32 GB can be added with a micro SD card. All space on the expansion card will be for user loaded content.

Looks like in 1.4 they now display both types of storage and usage.
