    Okay, so I was reading through the manual and I realized that I can actually remove the back cover and install a MicroSD card. I just assumed that this thing was sealed up. I tried to remove the back cover but I keep getting nervous because I'm placing a lot of pressure on the device but it won't come off. Is this normal? Do I just keep pushing until it comes off? Is it downward pressure into the device that I need or do I just push straight up? And I guess I could use clarification, it is the TOP of the device where the camera sensor is at that comes off right? Not the bottom where the cable plugs in?

    I'd just like some confirmation that I'm on the right track before I accidentally break this thing.

    I did NOT like that at all. I felt like I was going to break it. Felt the same way putting it back on. Oh well, I guess it's nice that the option to install an sd card is there. I will definitely make use of it. $230 EVO View from Daily Steals and soon I'll have my 32gb MicroSD card from Daily Steals. I'm starting to like that site.

    Yes I have the 32gig card as well lots of great HD video recording can be done. I did not like the way it felt the first few times I always felt like I was going to break it but you will get the hang of it. I really like the size of this tablet and it's super easy to type on my wife has an ipad and I get a kick out of watching her try to type and she is way better at typing then me on standard keyboard. But that ipad is an isore :)

    I would've bought a 32GB from Daily Steals but I found a 32 GB for $31.00 from Newegg. The Newegg 32GB card is a class 10 which means it writes faster. Always a plus when recording in HD.

    oops, sorry I overlooked your post. I should probably visit this section more often. I couldn't find the price I paid for mine (under $35.00 shipped) but I did find one for $39.99


    And DOH...I should probably read all posts before posting...
