I plan to get the ipad. There are two options: The 1st gen, 32 Gb, 3G or the Ipad 2, 16 Gb, wifi. Price for both are almost the the same. The biggest argument against the 16 Gb is space. I have the Iphone 3Gs and have used 3.8 Gb of space since i got the phone one year ago. I will use the ipad purposely when i travel. I bring the Asus EEPC netbook. Its light but with the power supply, etc., it becomes heavy. I bring two cams, lenses, etc., with the netbook. I was thinking the ipad will lighten my load. I use the netbook to check mail & surf the net. Not for editing (photo's) but with some occasional blogs of my trip. My question is: Are applications for the Ipad bigger in memory than the Iphone? If they are the same, then i wouldn't have to worry about memory. The consideration for the 1st gen Ipad is the 32 Gb memory and not the 3G because my iphone has 3G anyway. The ipad 2 is lighter, faster, with face time, etc. What do you think?
