Droid DNA also no SD card, also BS
LOL, I'm replying to myself. I wasn't sure if I should start a new thread for this.
I was a little shocked that the Droid DNA does not have an SD card option. For a flagship device I was expecting 32GB onboard and expandable storage, and maybe even a set of nice earphones. I don't believe HTC for a second when they say that they left out the SD card slot to keep the device thin. Then, they proceed to talk about cloud storage running off Verizon's LTE. Well, somebody's been sleeping with Verizon.
I've always liked HTC devices, but if the trend from now on is to have no SD card expansion, then I'll just have to go with Samsung or LG. With Motorola in Google's pocket, I don't think their next devices will have SD card slots either.
I hate to say it, but at least Apple is nice enough to have a 64GB option for iphone5.
In summary, google wants to mine your cloud data, and Verizon wants to get your money from data overages charges.
If all manufacturers decide to go the no SD card route, I'll just get a dumbphone with no data plan, carry a mp3 player, and keep a Tom Tom in my car.
