    Photo

    The iPhone 3G has a sensor 3mpx and every photo needs, about 1.3 MB. The new iPhone 4, however, has a sensor 5mpx and each photo would occupy about 2.7MB.

    Video

    The iPhone 3G video with resolution of 640 × 480 at 30fps. Using a compression of 40:1 m requires about 9.66 GB of space for 250 minutes of recording. The new iPhone 4, however, record movies with a risolzione of 960 × 720 at 30fps. For 250 minutes of recording, in this case, it takes about 22GB of space.

    It 'clear that, in case you want to use the new Apple device to shoot several videos you buy the 32GB mode

    Nope, you're limited to the size of the device itself. So it's better to go bigger. Also a larger one will have better resale value.

    This is incorrect. The dimensions of 720p are 1280 x 720, not 960 x 720. 720p has an aspect ratio of 16:9, and the dimensions you claim the iPhone records in (960 x 720) produce an aspect ratio of 4:3.
