Good, then this was made for you. There will be a 64MB version, but as I am finding, with a 1gb CF card, I can install nearly everything to the CF card, and I have most of my memory free.

My Casio isn't this bright. I play PocketGB in direct sunlight. Not sure if there's a better way to describe..
