RAM 0,5GB
It doesn't have the ram promised. Instead of 512MB equiso comes with approximately 380MB of RAM!

RE: RAM 0,5GB
You will never see 512MB on the device even if it's equipped with a 512MB RAM. I'll be always a bit less. I know 380MB is low, though I see 350MB on mine equiso (beta firmware) but I still believe they used that RAM they said. Probably it'll be something like the cpu clock running at 800Mhz instead 1Ghz, something software.

RE: RAM 0,5GB
Equiso shows about 359MB of ram available to be used by the Android OS.
The thing about this is the rest of the ram could be used up by other low level hardware devices on the board that need RAM; GPU, Radio, etc. All of these devices can allocate some of the 512MB before Android is even booted. Since Equiso custom built these from the ground up they should be able to better explain where the remaining ram is located... Hopefully, its not because they are using a kernel that doesn't support the HIGHMEM feature which shouldn't be the case as it shows more then 256MB. Big Grin

I checked this with some other android devices we had lying around and see similar results.
HTC Evo4G (512MB): 414,296
HTC Evo4G LTE (1GB):788,808

RE: RAM 0,5GB
mali is using some of it :> the thing that does the video processing. Pretty standard for arm boards with built in GPU. For that matter pretty standard with x86 boards with built in GPU's
