Re: Storage indeed
"No SD card in the nexus, but at least you can use a USB stick, or 20, or a USB microSD card reader if you like..."
So, er, just like an iPad with the Camera Connection Kit then?
No, it doesn't have a MicroSD slot built in, but most users don't need it. Why compromise a product's design and usability* for the sake of a relatively tiny number of edge cases?
If you want a tablet with stacks of storage, buy a Windows 8 model instead. Some of those come with 256 (and even 512 GB) of storage.
* (removable storage is a royal pain in the arse from a UI perspective. There's a bloody good reason why Apple went with software-eject systems for their Mac floppy disk drives back in the day.)
