Default Can't justify Thrive 7" purchase w/o full SD

I really love my 10" Thrive and I would also love to have the 7", but I can't justify the purchase to myself without the 7" having a full size SD card slot.

Anyone else think this would be a better idea than a micro slot?

All of my other devices (notebook, netbook, tablet, camera, and even my mp3 player) use my full size SD cards which makes them completely interchangeable.

Why oh why couldn't Toshiba make the room in the upcoming 7" for a full size slot? I am so disappointed and confused.

I agree. I wish the 7" tablets would offer standard SD as well as standard USB ports IN ADDITION to the micro and mini ports.
It's my belief that these devices should be everything that other devices are not. I for one, plan on carrying my 7" around everywhere, it's going to be my 3rd leg!

I have issues because I've been researching tablets for a few weeks now to find the right one. I found several budget tablets that have standard USB and standard SD ports but they, of course, lack the resolution and RAM that I want and require. So, I find myself having to sacrifice the ports for a higher end tablet because I especially need the RAM.

But, yes, I absolutely agree with you. And I believe I'll be getting a Thrive 7 but I'm debating on whether I should wait a few months to see how many of the tablets are reworked into that "3rd leg" LOL
Tablets are fresh to market, which means they don't have all the bugs worked out yet, they don't have everything a consumer wants in them. I'd like to say I can wait this out for the next generation but frankly - I'm NOT that patient.

The Blackberry Playbook was the highest on my list until I found they have NO external ports for expandable memory. The Thrive 7 took it's place on my wishlist.
