Come-from-Beyond, mthcl or David just one additional question: Is the amount of IOTA-Token/Coins really 999’999’999 and there are 9 figures after decimal point, so one more than Bitcoin have? So IOTA has even smaller units like a Bitcoin Satoshi? Thanks for clarification.

No. There will be 999'999'999'.999999999.

Thanks for clarification. Probably my English was not good enough but this is what I've assumed, so .999999999 and not 0.99999999

So they are all integer and total # is 1 quintillion minus 1, right? - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Names_of_large_numbers

Maybe. There is ambiguity in number names, e.g. sometimes a billion contains 9 zeros, sometimes 12. There are 18 decimal places in Iota amounts.

What is the rationale to create such a huge amount of coins?

Exactly, 10^18 units is not that much if we recall share size of IoT market.

so the sellers can price the data by per byte, or something like that, correct?

Depends. Bandwidth is too cheap for pricing per byte.

What will be the fee structure of IOTA?  Or will there even be one?

A Personal Quote on BTT from 2011:
"I'd be willing to make a moderate "investment" if the value of the BTC went below $2.00.  Otherwise I'll just have to live with my 5 BTC and be happy. :/"  ...sigh.  If only I knew.

There is no fees in Iota, you "pay" by securing the system.

Can Itoa client be installed in most of today's sensors in term of the hardware requirement or do most of today's sensors meet the minimum hardware requirement to install Itota client?

Full client can't run on MCUs with 64 KiB RAM, but lightweight part can.

How many full clients does the network need to support all the operation of lightweigh clients (Is there an ideal ratio between the two)?

There is no dependency.
