How Much Space Does The Operating System Take Up ?

I'm wondering which model to get and I'd like to know how much space the OS takes? On my iPhone "other" (which I guess is the OS) is around 400MB.

Backing Up The Operating System
I am new to Apple. I ordered the 32GB, 3G Ipad. I currently use a backup program from Paragon to back up my entire windows system, including the operating system. It has really proven useful. If I happen to get a virus that gets by my anti-virus program or something else really bad, I can simply restore my complete system from a different hard drive where I have the copy stored. How can something like this be done with the Ipad? I know it syncs with Itunes, but can the whole flash drive be re-done from a copy that you make with some program, similar to Paragon?

Syncing To A New PC Operating System?
I recently reinstalled Windows and want to re-sync everything from the iPad onto the new PC OS with iTunes.

However it's saying my iPad is sync'd to another computer and that if I want to sync it to the new computer it will have to erase the iPad. How do I sync everything on the iPad to the new PC OS, rather than the computer to the iPad?

I de-authorised the former PC operating system and have authorised the new one via iTunes, and it even states the new PC is authorised.

Difference Between Identical Operating System?
With iPhone OS 4.0, what exactly is going to be the difference between the iPhone and the iPad? Are we going to see a customized iPad 4.0 OS as Fall approaches, or will they be running identical operating systems? If that's the case, then wow. I was hoping for an expose like multi-tasking a few substantial features that would give some differentiation besides screen size. I mean, even the iPhone will now have iBooks.

IOS Grows Up To Be Computer Operating System
1) iPad gets storage bumps.2) iPad gets a definitive storage system. This allows apps to store in a definite place and you know where its going. (pages, etc.)3) Still us iOS, still basically the same.4) use either beefed up A4 chip OR use i3,i5,i7 processors... they'd be powerful5) Some sort of Retina Display for iPad's larger screen6) iLife for iPad7) Allow setting to allow third party apps that dont have to come through the app store. Make like a setting in the Settings app.
8) Encourage more apps based on Mac OS X applications like Google Chrome.9) Microsoft Office for iPad10) Of course, front and rear facing cameras.11) Finder and several other apps from Mac OS X that makes it more of a computer experience.

New Operating System - Mulyitasking Maintenance
Heard on the radio on the way into work this morning, I think it was on CNBC, that Apple was coming out with a "NEW" Operating System for the iPad to address problems relating to multitasking. I just purchased an iPad on 7 April.....Do I need to return my new iPad wait till the "new" operating system come out or will I automatically have my operating system upgraded by Apple when this "new" system comes out? I have also purchased the "extended" maintenance package

IPad 2 :: Limited Operating System
Ive had my iPad2 for less than a month and have come to the conclusion that it has a lot of potential but is severely limited by its poor operating system. Many Apps use work-a-round methods to try to correct some of the numerous restrictions but many of these are awkward in operation.

I believe these limitations were intentional in accordance to Steve Jobs Apple policy. Granted he was a great business man and forward thinking entrepreneur who greatly impacted the communications world of today but he was also a control freak who jealously guarded his Apple world from outside competition. He put great emphasis style and limited functionality where it strayed from his domain.

Dont get me wrong, my first computer was an Apple II+ which I bought in the early 80 and got great production from it using Multiplex for numerous spread functions for business and adapting 3rd party software for use in Ham radio applications but when IBM came out with the PC my Apple went on the shelf and still sits there today, gathering dust. When new tablets are introduced with the Windows 8 OS it will become crystal clear how limited the iPad2 OS really is.

Not Enough Space With 23GB Free - Error Message - There Is Not Enough Space To Download This Item
I have a 64GB 3g iPad. According to my iPad, I have 23.3GB free. I am trying to download a HD season of a show, which judging from previous seasons should be in the 7 GB range.

When I go to download it, I get the following error message: "There is not enough space to download this item. Please delete some photos or videos"

It'll be a few days before I can sync with my PC and delete some things, but any reason why I get this error when I have 3x the room required?

Storage Space Problem-I Received An Out Storage Space Memory Message
I have 32gig iPad with approx 16 gig of programs, pictures, audio files. I recently tried to upgrade a couple of programs and I received a out storage space memory message.I connected to iTunes and confirmed I only had 16 gig of programs etc But I now have a 16 gig OTHER file.I have looked for days online for a explanation why and have found nothing that talks directly to this problem. I believe it is some kind of cache file and from what I have read deleting the program that created it will delete the Other file but how do you know what program created it? I have tried re-syncing, re-booting, just about every suggestion for fixing an iPad or iPhone problem there is with no luck. Except a restore.Is there a way to delete this Other file without doing a restore?What caused this file to grow to the size of all of my available storage space?How do I determine what program did this so I can take steps to prevent it from happening again?What is the meaning of life?............Oh sorry I got carried away.

Application Space-running Out Of Room For Application Icon Space Or The Desktop
I love my iPad. Works great! Have had zero problems with it and use it several hours each day. However, I am running out of room for application icon space or the desktop. I can visualize using up all 11 pages in a couple of months as I add more stuff. I have heard that Apple may add folders and sub folders or additional pages to the next OS release. Anybody know what their plans "really are?" Is it just to be OS 4 that is in the new iPhone release or are they going to add stuff that is iPad unique as well?

Get Mail Back Operating?
I created a response to an email message earlier today. When I sent it, it was refused. I know the email address is good because I email this person frequently. The message on the screen said it placed the message in my Outbox. Attempts to send the message from the Outbox gave the same results. I then decided that I would copy it, and start a new message. When I did the Select All and then touched Copy I could not do anything except put the keyboard away everything was grayed out. I went back to the Home page, and restarted Mail. It came up OK so I made a second attempt at copying and pasteing. This time I am froze in my Outbox with the message showing. Again everything appears grayed out. How can I get Mail back operating?

All Other Operating Systems Are Not Significant To Even Register
A report out shows that 80% of new enterprise mobile devices being activated are running iOS, and only 20% are running Android. All other operating systems are not significant to even register. Even more interesting, 97.3% of tablet activations in enterprise are iPads. Based on these numbers, Apple has picked up the gauntlet that RIM threw away, and has run away with it.

USB Capability - 16, 32, Or 64 GB Of Space
I am one of the people that has yet to give in quite yet and buy and Ipad. I want to so badly but there are a couple of things that really turn me off and I was curious what other people thought about them.I know the Ipad is not (yet) a computer replacement. One thing that makes it not a replacement for me is the limited capacity, with Ipads currently containing only 16, 32, or 64 GB of space. My Ipod touch is at 64 and is nearly full WITHOUT my pictures from Iphoto being on it. Obviously as time goes on the space will increase as it always has in the past. However my biggest gripe with this is the fact that the Ipad does not offer than ability to connect usb devices such as an external harddrive. With the new OS coming out in November, is there any possibility of Apple adding the ability to use an external harddrive for added space. I feel that if I were able to store everything I would like, then there would be no debate on whether I would give in and buy one or not. I know that it is not out of apples reach to accomplish what I am hoping, but I don't know if apple has any plans to actually do it. What do you all think about the idea and what do you all think the chances of apple doing it are. I know we can't see the future, just asking opinions.
