i still think 'that other company' is inspiring Google to follow some of their crap. the no expandable storage is just one out of many. that, and like their UI changes, perhaps they want to cater to folks who would choose that other company over Android somehow. but by doing so they're making their loyal customers a bit peeved, myself included. Personally the reasons Google has stated for not having an SD slot are crap, and only idiots would believe them (it's too complicated and folks won't be able to tell internal from external storage..lolwut?)
Seriously, this dumbing down has to stop.
