The new firmware images are normally in the 100 to 150 Meg range .
I can actually comment from experience here.. I haven't really encountered database corruption from filling up the memory on the KT. I've currently got my KT filled to 1390/1400 with no problems on speed or DB corruption. The only problem with having it filled to this point (I suspect a large chunk is actually image files that the KT creates/deletes as needed) is that since firmware updates expect 100-150MB free to unpack and install you won't be able to upgrade till you bring the total down. Or if you look at it the other way if you keep your KT relatively full you can continue to sync a few ebook files w/o the worry of getting upgraded forcefully. If you attempt sync and the KT becomes too full it simply displays a message to erase a few files before trying to sync again. Your KT will not explode like some others may imply..
