Google Nobody needs a tablet, but many people still want a tablet. This is still the core differentiator between a 'real' computer and a tablet. At least in The Netherlands, you can't function in society without a desktop or laptop connected to the internet, so people need a computer. A tablet, though? Hence, the most common thing people have told me when they played with my iPad 2 is this: I'd love to have a tablet, but not for hundreds of euros. Enter Google's Nexus 7, the first 'cheap' tablet that doesn't just validate Android as a tablet platform, but also gives the iPad a run for its money.

To answer your question, I plugged in my iPad and looked at the allocations:

18Gb for Videos
9Gb for Photos & home videos
27Gb for Apps
2Gb for "Others" (not sure what that is)

I don't have music on it, which I keep only on my iPhone.

I might be an edge case, but I'm definitely one of those who needs a 64Gb tablet ;)

Oh yikes! lol In that case, I can definitely understand the need for additional space (and a SD card). We certainly use tablets in a different manner. Looking at my tablet (Galaxy Tab 10.1 32GB), my breakdown is:

28.01GB Free
523 MB used by Apps

Like I said, I watch movies online and such and upload all of my documents/pictures to online accounts.

I just did a wipe yesterday before I grabbed the ICS update (4.0.4) and haven't installed everything back onto it, but I tend to not install much stuff on it (I don't play any games on it or anything).
