My HTC Desire and Kindle share the same style USB connector which is handy while traveling, I wish everyone would standardize on the same connector :)

comment Reducing the memory usage of Contacts Storage
After removing the sync from Facebook and Twitter the contents didn't reduce much. I had to delete all the contacts and let them resync from my Google account to finally get it to reduce the size.

You can get apps which will rescan you SD card to pickup any new files downloaded from DropBox. For example appbrain.com/app/sdrescan/com.bero.sdrescan

comment Reducing the memory usage of Contacts Storage
Thanks, I'll try removing the contacts sync from Facebook etc. Will doing this shrink the memory usage or will it hold on to what it has got already?
