Re: Nice but no SD slot
Yeah, not to mention that both my phone and my wife's phone have had their microSD cards die in the last 3 months, after only about 2 years.
The internal storage should be more reliable than the cheap cards most people shove into phones, and the results from a borked SD card can be confusing and non-obvious. (e.g. the predictions stopped popping up on swiftkey, camera wouldn't save pics, handcent wouldn't play notification sounds)
Also, android is not set up to allow for widgets to be used from the SD card, and SD card apps cannot run on startup when rebooting the phone. I'm sure they could fix the issues, but it was probably much simpler to dictate this part of their specs and let the manufacturers deal with the headaches if they decide to include the SD slot.
