    I see people complaining about no internal compact flash for extra storage. I know it isn’t as nice, but couldn’t you use the micro-usb port to rig up some extra storage?

    • I do that on my Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 so I guess that would be possible.

        Google blocked this on the Nexus 7. I think they did it not because of cost, they actually had to engineer the block into the system, but because they wanted to cripple the subsidized Nexus 7 so that other makers would still have an incentive to manufacture other 7″ tablets. (You can hack around this limitation, btw…) They also took out the hdmi out and micros-SD cards that had been in the ASUS model the Nexus 7 came from. It is not good as a portable video player at all because of these design choices.

        So, it is entirely conceivable they would have done something similar with the Nexus 10, though it does not look like it is a crippled product like the Nexus 7 is. The lack of micro-USB is something google is pushing whenever they can. They do seem to want to simplify the sustem design AND to have us using online storage as much as possible. I think they are driving blind on this, though. WAY too many of us don’t have ever-present connections to the net, nor do we have data plans that allow enough streaming of our media. If you have a big music collection, you probably need local storage. Google refuses to accept this. And they fly this flaf with their Nexus design choices.
