    Thus it is a good tablet but a horrible media device for on the go. If it had 3g or lte it could do media via streaming but it is wifi only. Reply

    For the tech enthusiast I'd agree, for the average user the 16GB on board is enough... The iPad seems to sell fine without expandable storage and I'm pretty sure the Wifi version vastly outsells the 3G/4G versions. Don't get me wrong, I personally wouldn't buy a device without expandable storage, I think HDMI out is another weak omission, but this could still do really really well as a mass market device despite it.

    Now the Nexus Q on the other hand, that device seems rather overpriced unless there's some killer functionality yet to be revealed (even phone/tablet mirroring wouldn't save it). The market has shown people don't wanna pay more than $100 for simple streaming boxes... Google TV has tried to expand on the concept and price + lack of content provider partnerships made it a let down, how's the Q any better?

    With no MicroSD... I have no idea what they were thinking.... This is killing me. Reply

    Pretty much. If it had an SD card slot I would have pre-ordered one while the keynote was still going on. Now I have next to no interest in it. Reply

    A microUSB port for hooking up flash drives via USB OTG would ve been a decent compromise... I agree it's a deal breaker for many enthusiasts, but the average consumer couldn't give a damn. I'm holding off on upgrading my Transformer for a while. Hopefully in another year Samsung or ASUS will have something in the 8.9" range with a full suit of ports and expansion, for $300 or less Reply
