The preview of the new Nexus 7 looks interesting:

However, to me, unless it has a MicroSD slot (to hold more files) and an OTG port (to connect to thumb drives and cameras), I'll pass.

Any insults, implied anger, bad grammar and bad spelling, are entirely unintentionalal. Sorry.

I understand the reticence...on the other hand, the 7" and 8" competition that DOES have a uSD slot doesn't have as good a spec sheet or screen.  When you get into the 10" format, things start looking better.  And the Nexus 7 is OTG compatible, it just may not be full USB Host supporting...though we'll have to find that out in a few days. In any case, Nexus Media Importer solves most of those hard-wired interconnection problems.

As for me, a wireless hub/reader satisfies my need for photo backup, and 32GB is usually more than enough for me to store all my travel guides and whatever image files and programs I need to edit if I can move files between the HDD and onboard storage as needed. Of course, it also means carrying an outboard HDD setup, but then I shoot RAW and would have to use multiple 64GB uSD cards to store all that I shoot on a trip.
