Increase the ‘Device’ Storage on Your Android HD2
One of the exciting things about trying out Android on your HD2 is experimenting with all the weird and wonderful Android apps out there.
If you’re an HD2 owner who likes to install lots of apps and tinker around with Android, then you might be finding that 256MB of device memory just isn’t enough. (Remember Froyo is the only Android OS that let’s you install apps to SD without requiring a hack).
This is exactly how XDA forum member Kev007 felt and he went and did something about it. The XDA member has provided a fix to increase the size of the data.img file so that there will be more free space available once mounted.

As of late, Microsoft has been making a subtle but widespread play into the Android ecosystem, with small apps like Bing Torque being the foreshadowing of the larger ones to come, and as it stands, Skype and the three popular office apps - Powerpoint, Excel and Word - are thriving on the Play Store following their public release earlier this year, prior to which the Office suite remained in beta.
