    why isn't there a SD card reader(external dongle type) for Touchpad?
    even iPads have an optional reader and Apple is known for being
    a very closed-minded company....

    'Even ipads'
    o_O cause few people make iPad accessories. Also, iPads were not discontinued last month.

    I have a feeling if the TP had caught on we'd have accessories galore. I'm happy we have cases at least. My Acer Iconia is a very popular tablet and there's not much for it available.

    Because you can charge an extra $100 for an extra 16gb of course.

    There is support for it in the kernel I'm sure someone will figure out how to connect one with SPI but that would of course involve cracking it open. I plan to fit a microusb hub with connectors removed and usb microsd reader in where the sim card placeholder is.

    I thought HP was figuring everyone was using "the cloud" nowadays for retrieving files. Or course, having an SD slot would sure simplify things.

    Word is you can use a powered USB hub to connect a drive or card reader.

    you can hardly level an equal comparison considering the current price points
