As much as this thing looks like a home run, with the complete lack of mention of any card slot, I'm a little worried that we'll have been punked out of one.
Don't get me wrong; I'm still way excited...
...I'm just already feelin' a little rueful, imagining how I'll still have to carry one or two other devices to use as my main music-player/video player.
Not that I don't do that now...so it's not like that'll keep me from buying it...
(I've had the 600, 650, 700p, and currently, the 755p)
Tho...one awesome thing about having a card slot that I've so far taken for granted is the ability to completely back up my phone onto it. So...for instance, as I've had to do a number of times...I can back up the phone as I walk into a Sprint store, they give me a replacement phone, 'cause whatever's ailin' my phone can't be fixed, and then I pop the card into the replacement phone, do a restore, and voila! I have all my old phone's data on my new phone, down to the most recently made/missed/received calls and texts!
Now *that* fearlessness, I'd really really miss...
