As far as a micro SD slot goes I personally fail to see the need. You have essentially unlimited storage online available to anyone.

I travel a lot, and MANY times I don't have access to the Web (such as on an 8 hour flight) but still want access to my movies/music etc. Also, if I want to backup photos from my camera, uploading 16 GB of photos over WiFi can take a while - transferring by USB to a microSD card is MUCH faster.

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

Certainly don't want to be uploading over 3/4G on a data plan either.  I use my tablet when I am out in wilderness areas or even in the low population north Georgia mountains and can be out of coverage for days at a time.  I am content to use the options to manage my media through a variety of USB or WiFi based drives.  Certainly a built in SD slot would help, but I tend to use CF cards in my DSLR so I would still have some challenges.
