Instead of luring Apple's iPhone into using the SDCard, HTC was lured by iPhone not to include it?... Bummer. I agree that giving more flexibility to consumers is a long-term win-win approach.
I don't see anybody luring Apple into using micro sd, they have never had, don't think they ever will.
@Jhop Hadn't thought of that scenario, I know if rooted there are ways to mirror the screen etc. But at least in regards to pictures I have been using Google+ to instant upload, so at least I know I will never loose another good pic.
