Glad I asked that, since I had it semi-backwards.

As you say, videos chew memory, but it's not as if it would be your only storage. You can put a lot of stuff even on 16GB (remember the hard drives of yore?).
But we have sloppier stuff these days. Are most apps small?

An iPhone or iPod touch is much more portable, but the extra screen space of the iPad makes it much more practical for some things. I know my iPhone is a strain on my eyes after a while because it's so small. I guess your choice should depend to a certain amount on how much you intend to get about with it.
Probably not too much. I want this thing viscerally, so am trying to figure out a practical use so as not to feel too guilty. But I suspect most use will be at home.

If it turns out to be easy to store my own PDFs in it, I might use it instead of sheafs of papers. Can you put it on a copier and get a good print?
