Is 512mb really not enough for an Android phone? (I'm thinking of Nexus S or Atrix 4g). I love the pure Google idea, but the Atrix has Tegra 2 and 1gb of RAM. Which would you get? Keep in mind the Atrix has the infamous MotoBlur software.

I would hold off on the Nexus S, but instead wait for the "Nexus Prime" that's coming sometime in October.
Between Atrix 4G and Nexus S I would go with the Atrix 4G.
However I think the Nexus Prime will triumph over both of them.

If you want to multitask with out running into memory issues or random apps closing, make sure you have 1GB RAM
If you have 512MB RAM, android can use nearly half of your RAM, This can cause issues if you want to use a browser with many tabs opened while listening to music and also running a few network tools, then you want 1GB or more if possible.

From my experience, the stock browser takes up the most ram when you open a lot of tabs. It's a different case if you use Opera Mobile though. That thing runs so smoothly on my old Nokia phone with Symbian and only 64mb of ram. The only problem with using Opera mobile on Tegra2 tablets or phones, 480p videos on Youtube seems to lag a little.
