My iPod I've used for the past couple of years has 8 gigabytes (gb) of memory, so I'm assuming that I can store four times as much on the iPad, but what does that mean really?
So after the initial experiment of iPad setup, the second experiment is, "Can I completely fill my my iPad on the first day?"
I did it, but I cheated because I already had a lot of material out on iTunes. I also left some room because I thought I might need it.
Here's how my memory wound up looking:
- I downloaded all of my iPod apps that would run on the iPad. (3.6 GB)
- I downloaded all of my music files (5.7 gb, 831 tracks, about 52 hours of music. No, I don't have a life...)
- I downloaded all of my iBooks (Less than one gb. I actually use several eReaders so a lot of my eBooks wind up being included in my Applications Space.)
- I downloaded about ten of my digital movies (about 18 gb)
- I left about two gb free for e-mail when I get that working.
So, what is the biggest slice of the "pie" in your iPad's memory?
