"other" can be cache for streamed media... documents, app data and really anything that iOS can't identify what it is, or what to do with it.

Depends on if you do a lot of media streaming... or have a lot of apps that are less well written and iOS can't figure out what to do with the app data... "other" can be minimized/reduced by doing a back up via iTunes, erasing all content and settings, then restoring the backup and re-syncing to iTunes.
