Re: so memory card slot

That would likely be a deal breaker for me and many others.

With Google Music cloud service it wouldn't be so bad, but I like to carry lots of TV and Movies in case I get stuck bored somewhere. I don't understand why they wouldn't put an micro SD slot on there.

For example, if you're on an airplane and want to load it up with some movies. Downloading is far slower than copying to the card from your computer.

Not just that...if you are on the plane, you don't have connectivity or if you do it's the dog slow variety. I know from my iPad and iPhone, both 64GB models being full all the time, if I were to get a different device I would definitely be looking for one with expandable storage. This is especially true in a 10" tablet. Some of my 1080P concert videos are 15+GB because I don't bother to reencode for portable devices (I just use the same files as I do for my HTPC).

16-32GB definitely wouldn't cut it for a long haul flight from LAX to NRT.
