    Ipad/phone photo compression?

    I am planning to get an ipad Monday and need to decide on memory size.

    I have a 16gb iphone an this just about holds all my photos/music.

    Does the ipad use the same compression? I will not need music so 16gb might do if it is the same.

    But how much free space is left on your iPhone or is it completely full? If you are pretty much at capacity, I would get the 32gb iPad and not have to worry about adding more photos in the future.

    In my opinion, a 16GB iPhone 4 and 16GB iPad are plenty as far as storage capacity goes. If you can comfortably fit everything on your current 16GB iPhone by making some "library sacrifices", I say go for it. No reason to spend money on a 32GB iPad that you probably don't need.

    I've never quite understood the mentality of trying to fit every bit of music/video/photos etc one owns onto a mobile device. Its a losing game, surely -- you'll eventually fill up the device at a far faster rate than they'll make ever-larger storage capacity iPads.

    I tend to put what I think of as a week's worth of music and a weekend's worth of video on portable devices, and set up a smart playlist to automatically freshen that whenever I sync (which I have to do periodically to charge and update the device anyway). Simple, quick and I never have to worry about it.
