Great news.

I am curious which iPhone and which iPad?

For the non-iPad owners here are a few (unofficial) specs, so you
have a rough idea of how much memory the iDevices have:

Internal RAM for:
  iPad 2            512MB
  iPad 1            256MB

  iPhone 4         512MB
  iPhone 3GS    256MB
  iPhone 3G      128MB
  iPhone           128MB
