I will be passing on this tablet. No SD slot is a deal-breaker for me. I need expansion, and I need it local... not on a cloud that requires me to be online at all times with my tablet. Especially when my son is watching HD movies. I don't have time for buffering or any of that nonsense.
Like I said in my earlier post on this same thread... I'll be waiting for a 1920x1080 tablet to come out before I upgrade to a new one. The price isn't really a big deal for me. I just need as much space as possible (without a spinning drive), and a nice high-resolution screen (need my next tablet to be 1080p). Those are my real concerns for my next device.
I agree, I don't use the cloud. My internet speed is waay to slow for downloading video. I can stream netflix on it's lowest quality! Hopefully the asus version of the device will have a card slot?!
I think not going for the i pad was a good idea, but they should have aimed a bit higher than the kindle. By giving it a card slot it would have wiped the floor with everything else, short of paying silly money for an i pad or samsung 10.1 tab.
