    I remember being a little bummed about the lack of SD storage on this device before I got it. These days I'm using Google Music (cloud) and have an automated Dropbox backup of my images and videos... I never have space concerns.

    i believe googles official reasoning was it is easier to push updates to the phone if it does not have an sd card. not sure why.

    Part of the reason it is easier is because the newer versions of android partition the storage it has and calls it SDCard. There for if it has a true sd slot they have to create the sd-ext links and the os still out of the box uses the default sdcard mounted directory for installs and things. The Droid X2 was a mess because of how it was handled and where apps isntalled to.
