I just want to give a big congrats to Google/Asus for turning a sure thing into a steaming pile of crap/no thanks... no sd card expansion and no hdmi out, complete and utter deal breakers... this new tablet will be for a select few who do not care about a do it all in one device device. The price was too good to be true.

Yeah, I thought I read it was going to be $150

I got my Kindle Fire at $150 and it's ok at that price...
But $200 needs a bit more expansion.


Oh, Im sorry... Did the middle of my sentence interrupt the beginning of yours?
