Why would you not put an sd slot on an Android device- especially this one wit h the specs? People do not usually look for devices with less basic features on a high end device, but might not purchase something if there are basic features missing- like an sd slot. This is especially ironic since Android L now fully supports SD as part of the framework and card writes are enabled in it. IMO, this will hurt rather than help sales. Have a device with the specs this has but no sd slot. Stupid move in regards to constraining sales.
