    Getting ready to pre-order the new Tab. With the usb option, I'm wondering if I really need the 32gb. Any ideas?

    If you have the financial means I'd say just go for the 32GB.

    I'm debating if I will need 32 GB as well since most of my files are in the cloud.
    I will also be getting the USB adapter. That way I can access my portable hard drive if needed. I'm hoping this feature is supported. If not I may grab a 16 or 32 GB thumb drive to go along with the adapter.
    $100 doesn't sound like much, but that could actually be a new printer for my laptop.

    I preordered the 16 gb. With google music and the cloud I'd rather save the hundred plus bucks after taxes. I had the xoom and never came close to 16 gb on that

    Thanks for informing us about google music. Just sent my invite request for a google music account.

    I've been using it with Google Music and the only problem I have is that sometimes the music volume seems to get stuck at a certain level even though the tablet indicates that it is changing the volume.

    Just updated to 3.1 so will see if that makes a difference.

    I pre-ordered the 16GB today. Okay, technically my wife pre-ordered my Father's day present today, but she "consulted" me for my preference.

    I went smaller, not realizing it doesn't have Micro SD port. But I have yet to fill up my 8GB SD on my Mesmerize, so I am not too worried at this point.

    I'm testing out a galaxy tab 10.1 with 16 gb and it seems sufficient for now. Like people said, with cloud music now, I just keep my essential music on device for when I have no service and then rest in Google music or I use amazon mp3 as well.

    I have about 1GB free on my 32GB card for my phone, so Im just goin with the 32gb model since I dont want to be wishing for more space after I get it.

    I'm reminded of a conversation I had with a female engineer a number of years ago. About whether to buy a 250mb hard drive or a 500. She decided on a 250 - against my recommendations. Requirements go up exponentially!

    Sadly, I can remember when a computer with 64k of ram was a speed demon.

    Thanks for all the feedback! I bought the 32gb and am quite far. :)

    Yes, I did, too. ;)
    I'm thinking of the memory I'll need to watch a two hour movie when flying from coast to coast.

    with music taking up pretty much all the space, google saves the day again with music beta. 16gb was the way to go for me. loving it.

    Google music is fine if you have a internet connection.

    picked up the 16gb today, just couldn't justify $100 for another 16gb.

    For my use, 16gb is plenty for me. I don't store anything on my tablet really other than apps and whatever is associated with them.

    With cloud storage, 16 GB was enough for me.

    16gb works very well for me. I have around 20 apps, 100 pics and usually store 3-4 movies and books for commuting and still have 8 gigs free. The movies (avi) obviously take the most space but i delete them with a file manager once i watch them.

    I have the first generation tab with 16gb, have about 50 apps, 6gb of music, and movies but I constantly change those out and I still have 1-2gb always free. I decided to stick with the 16gb tab 10.1 as well. I plan on using the cloud for my music this time around so I should have more space available.

    Since there is no SD card slot, I'd recommend the 32GB, just so You won't be wishing you'd spent the extra $100 later and got the bigger GB's.

    Or you can get teh USB adapter and a 32gb USB.....if the need arises.
