    More than just PETABYTES, I think.

    I believe PETA BYTE is the recommended Storage capacity for a personal devices in the coming Decade!

    zetta-bytes, if we continue at the present rate, BUT if we find a need for storing more data it could accelerate or in the public finds that multi-tera-bytes are enough the pace will slow down. It is up to the "paying" public as to how fast the storage size will grow. (keep in mind that expansion is based on 2^ so each bit of address doubles the capacity of the storage)

    It would probably not be more than a few terrabytes, everything else is store in the cloud space on some servers.

    OK... there are couple of things to look at here. One is need and the other one is actual attainable capacity of a given technology. What is scientifically possible is different from what it can be mass produced and what will have a demand by either enterprise and residential users. For home users a few terabytes is more than enough compared to the need that folks like google or youtube will have.

    1billion yottabytes evidently.

    Seriously though perhaps a few Petabytes?

    Are we talking theoretical or practical? Much of this depends on what we expect our devices to actually do. Theoretically, we could store petabytes of data on our devices, but I'd have to ask myself fundamentally why I would want to. It reminds me of the days when we had hundreds of gigabyte iPods, you know for those people that had to have every album they ever owned forever on one device, because they had a need to have months worth of continuous listening. Possible? Yes. Practical? Not really, especially with cloud storage and transfer capability. Could we be actively be storing terabytes of days in the next few years on our mobile devices? that seems a lot more likely, if for no other reason I'd not want that many eggs in just one basket.
