    I sit behind the computer quite a bit so for me to re-sync my movies, audio, podcasts, etc it makes sense for me to get the 8GB iPhone.

    BUT what about the new WebApps...

    Do we have an estimate on how much space these things will take up? If I have 30/40 web apps on my phone in a year and all my media, am I going to kicking myself saying, I should have gotten the 16GB?

    How can you help me make this decision? Just say, suck it up rfricky and buy the 16GB and you don't have to worry about it.

    Thx!

    If ya really feel squirly, you can also buy a 32GB touch and crack them both open and replace the 16GB with the 32GB flash. Then what would you have to worry about. you would probably say thats not good emough, and want 64GB. shish you people.

    Just a link to a website so like 10kb or so because of the pic. If you mean Apps from the AppStore they can be any size. Some games probably will be more that 1GB.

    So...

    Suck it up rfricky and buy the 16GB and you don't have to worry about it.

    Ummm no.
    You definitely can't do that because the iPod Touch uses two flash memory chips (16GB each) and the iPhone only has room for one.

    Web Apps take up almost no space at all since they're just links to a website.

    App Store apps would be somewhat different. It really depends on the app but given the fact that they said apps under 10mb can be downloaded over 3G I think a lot of the smaller utility apps will be around that size. Obviously when you start getting games and whatnot the size would be a lot greater.
