My Device: Tour

Can anyone explain the different memory amounts on the Tour?

I know the specs say 256MB built in memory, but I'm curious to know how much of that is reserved for the OS, how much for applications, etc.  When I use MemoryBooster, it shows I have 54833KB memory that the app monitors and clears out periodically.  When I use MeterBerry, it shows 32MB memory that it monitors and clears as needed.  


1. Why would these two apps say 54MB vs 32MB?


2. Is that memory amount part of the 256MB memory per the specs or is there another bank of memory?


3.  How much of the 256MB is application memory?
