That's right, if you sync it from your computer you won't need to have the extra space the download would take - so only 1.50 GB.

Hey Echo, please forgive the request for further elaboration, but you seem to understand this better than I, so...

If we load it on to our phone, take it off at some point after syncing, and then put it back on, does it take up less space then?

I hope you can figure out what I'm asking. I'm not sure I worded the question very well...

I could never give up.

When you download the game from a device, you're downloading the installer - which in this case is the ~800Mb file that is listed in iTunes. Think of this as a zipped folder. The installer you've just downloaded then installs the actual game (in this case the 1.5GB) onto the device. At this point you need enough space to hold both the installer and the game itself. After this is done, the installer is deleted automatically and you're left with the game only. Rinse and repeat for updates.

When you do it via a computer though, the installer stays on the computer and you sync only the game file itself - which is why you can get away with having less space.

Since everyone's asking E7 questions, here's one for you too.

You're gonna be playing this on an iPhone 4 right? Is it too much to ask you to just basically tell us how the game runs when you've had some time with it?

Eh, I can't get this one till it hits the US store - but after that sure, I will gladly be your guinea pig.

Oh, no no...nevermind then. Considering this hits both the US and Lebanese stores at the same time and I'll just have 1 hour of "free" internet left before it reverts back to normal for the rest of the day, I'll definitely be taking advantage of that and getting it ASAP. Thanks for offering though.
