why can't they just add the sd card slot? i'm sure it's not a big hassle for them to do that. 3g is also a great feature they can add up. want to be competitive? then add those essentials. plus iphones are overrated. i would never buy such and expensive phone that doesn't have most essentials of a phone/tablet. go get a samsung or something.
Yo, this is the potential new king of tablets, suggesting the price of course.
VERY Aggressive Pricing + More Functionality = WIN
For everyone complaining about the lack of SD card slot, let me say this: the iPad(and the iPhone, and the iPod) doesn't have SD card slots as well, yet no one is complaining about them. Not to mention that this tablet is half the price of the iPad. what more do you want?
Mr Smart, 15 Jul 2012There's two factor i dont like this tablet 1. No SD Card 2. No SIM Card Thanks, No Offense.This is a tablet, not a phone. Go get a phone if you want SD card support and SIM card function :)
TravelerRtB, 16 Jul 2012NO Back camer and NO sd card then thanks NO Nexus 7. Very soon we will see this devise one ... moreDid you realize that same and similar has the same meaning? Go learn some proper English, dude. Plus, the main selling point of this tablet is the price...So don't expect a 12-MP 1080p HD camera in one of those...Go buy yourself a digital camera if that's what you want. And, the iPad(and the iPhone, and the iPod) doesn't have SD card slot, and no one is complaining about it, so I don't think your point is valid. This tablet is also half the price of the iPad, in case you fail to notice.
It must be 3G at least. Yes, we can use our smartphone's wifi hotspot but the problem is our phone's weak battery life.
NO Back camer and NO sd card then thanks NO Nexus 7.
Very soon we will see this devise one of the big losers, and I'm sure Samsung or else will produce a better one with same or similar price.
I think GSMArena is one reviewer who tells you relevant info on any Mobile device, like:
1. Tablet with no support for GSM voice communication, SMS, and MMS.This is not a GSM device, it will not work on any GSM network worldwide.
2. Pixel Density of the Screen.
These two are most important features that can make or break the Tablet for me, Thanks GSMArena for such a detailed and relevant specs :)
If you guys are too upset about the no SD card slot, just bring a smartphone with you that has an SD card slot and send the files you need to it over bluetooth, in case the files won't fit... That being said, I wouldn't see it probable to bring this tablet anywhere without your phone, so I think it's just fitting to do what I have suggested. Maybe, a 32GB SD card would suffice?
No SD slot is great move by google to counter their loss for 8gb..i read somewhere that google is at loss for selling the 8gb model (engadget maybe), due to high price of hardware used, compare to the selling price.. meanwhile, they make profit from selling the 16gb model.. for most people, they'll choose for the 16gb version.. imagine if there is SD card slot, people will buy the 8gb version and put SD card for greater storage..then google will be at loss..
There's two factor i dont like this tablet
1. No SD Card
2. No SIM Card
Thanks, No Offense.
louigi, 13 Jul 2012Why google!!!!! No micro SD card slot, seriously, what is the point!!!!!! Friend, if google will give sd slot, then it will risk its monopoly(that its trying to create) in tablets. It will give you cloud storage. And for that reason they opted out mem card slot....
NO sd card , as google wanna push us to this shit Cloud !! why google ?!
i can be ok with No 3g , No rear cam , but i cant with No Sd card .. i luv this tablet but i cant buy it without Sd card :(
Dead pixel in the middle of my nexus 7 when I opened it yesterday. Still an amazing piece of hardware.
louigi, 13 Jul 2012Why google!!!!! No micro SD card slot, seriously, what is the point!!!!!! Who needs micro sd anymore? Plenty of cloud storage +16gb internal. Get out of the dark ages and keep up with modern tech
