Of course, that works for Apple, but for normal vendors, the buyer will just buy a different tablet brand that has the SD card, if it's important to them, and the manufacturer will get no margin at all.
The better course would be for the manufacturer to put the card slot in, not offer a 16GB version (heck, just make a 4GB version and save some money themselves....) and make the up-charge model have more RAM, faster processor, better camera, or whatever bell-and/or-whistle they think will give them the bigger value-add. Sell a deluxe pack with leather case and SD card or something.
