I'm wondering how much bigger an ipad specific game would be on the ipad.

This can help determine which ipad to get.

Thanks.

You can't upgrade the RAM - get the most RAM you can afford.

Search for Labryinth 2 here on the TA forums for a very good iPad app size discussion...

You mean storage space, RAM is a different thing.

You're right, I should have said Flash RAM.

Either way, more storage capacity is what you want.

Yeah, it's a huge thread, took me a while to find it myself, starts around here I think. Discussion is mostly about the required high-res textures for the iPad

Well TanZen for iPhone/iPod touch is 4.4 MB

And the dev tweeted this earlier: http://twitter.com/lilwhitebear/status/10734858499

Saying the iPad version of Tanzen might be around 50 MB
