Are the applications installed from the AppStore located on the Media partition? Or will it remain as it did previously with the 1st Gen phone and be on the OS?...

Are the applications installed from the AppStore located on the Media partition? Or will it remain as it did previously with the 1st Gen phone and be on the OS? I am wondering this because I choked down for the 8GB phone, (I have a 160GB iPod) and just realized that very relevant question. Argh....

its hard to say until we can look at the file structer, if i was to guess it would be added to the media portion.

I guess what I really want to know is can I download too many apps from the App Store? Will my device start slowing down if I go crazy with all these new apps?
Wasn't the point of Boss Tool to move the apps to the media partition so that you wouldn't slow down or fill up the device if you put too much on the OS partition?

The standard phone has the OS partition as read-only - that is why Apple does tricks to enable simple changes that would normally be done by modifying a file on the OS partition. (Such as they way the Weather.app icon is changed.)Starlight Computer Wizardry

After you sync apps using iTunes, do you see less free space available on the device? If the answer is yes, wouldn't that mean those apps went into your media partition?
