I just can't go for this unless there is microSD option. I wish we had some confirmation so I could either be excited or move on to something else.

We should know all by tomorrow.  I actually would be surprised if there isn't either microSD or microUSB of some sort.

I am disappointed it does not have a micro-SD card in it but will have to get used to using the cloud I guess.
Bluetooth and micro-USB is very be nice to have.

Oh Google, please get it right with the SD card and at least include a port where we can add a USB, HDMI adapter.

Cheap price will not mean a thing if everything has to be done "in the cloud".

Kindle fire sells millions it is not pure android no SD card no HDMI,
I would think the next Gen nexus will have those features, just like the Xoom at first everyone dump on it and that was the reason I got one, to date we are the first to get all of what Google  has to offer first, with over 100+gig of cloud space micro SD is the least of my storing problem..

True.  I guess the cloud is the future...but not one I care about.  It would have been nice to use an sd card for transferring pics from my camera since it doesn't have bluetooth, or to grab a file quickly from work without having to wait for it to transfer up.  For the pics, I guess I will have to transfer them to my computer, since I edit most of them anyway, than transfer to tablet.  This should hopefully work with the USB on Nexus 7.

Some people state that the cloud lessens the quality of their music files (?) but I guess Google needed a way to make some money on this device, thus the store, cloud, etc.  Luckily they included the USB or sales would not have been near as good.   No doubt it is a great tablet, but an sd card port and HDMI port would have been a game changer.

I'm with you.  If it is true that the cloud degrades the music, then it probably also compresses the video files.  At that rate it is TOTALLY worthless to me, as it isn't true storage.  Anybody have any thoughts on that subject?

The lack of a sd card slot is bad enough, if they had not included the USB, I would not have ordered it.

The feature I'm most looking forward to playing with is Google Now. My guess is that it won't run as well here in the UK as in the States, but I look forward to being proved wrong.

I'm most excited about the over all improvements, the whole package. Jellybean is going to be a big step up from honeycomb. The OS, processor, the smaller size, - it's all going to be a new experience for me. I'm especially excited about the Google now and Google search. It seems really well designed. Also, the Chrome browser is going to be so much better than the other old browsers. Really, there's nothing wrong with it. :-)

It's the combination of newest OS, quad-core processor, gps/compass/accelerometer & gyroscope, all for the price of a Nook or Fire.

I was on the fence and seriously looking at a RIM Playbook. Bput with all of their problems, I could not justify dropping $300 on a product that might now have a company behind a year from now

The processor speed is a huge plus for me as well as the ability to use the tablet for business. I own an iPad but the lack of Flash and other document related issues do not make it as functional as the media would lead one to believe.

A few months back I bought an Asus TF101 and was greatly disaapointed as to how horribly slow it was, not to mention the browser was absolutely terrible. I sold it on eBay, banked the cash and used it to purchase the Nexus. Based upon all the review I've read to date, I doubt I am going to be disappointed.
Peace,
