    When referring to a hard disk, a partition is a segment of the hard drive that is separated from other portions of the hard drive. Think of a partition as a divider... if the whole disk holds 16GB of space and a divide (partition) is put up half way, then each side of the divide (partition) each has 8GB of space...

    On the iPhone, their a a couple of partitions... the main partition is 15GB and is used for storing the music, videos, etc... and then theres a smaller partition which is only 300MB and its used for the system.

    Does that help!?

    thanks for the replies. i thought since the 8 gb has the os partition on 300 mb, the 16 gb iphone would have twice that amount. i guess not.

    all these sounds fishy. sdk is coming, and yet 16gb model still has 300mb for apps, that's absolutely not enough. perhaps there'll be new 3G model very very soon as rumored, together with upgraded storage for apps?

    Ohhh thanks! Is that why any iPod never has as many GBs as it came with? My "8GB" has about 7.3, my old mini had about 3.7 instead of 4.
