"To put an SD card slot in it would have defiled it."

Lots of talk about this here. Another phone w/o external storage.

Quote:
Nokia's new Lumia 920 smartphone is missing an SD card slot, but that was intentional.

Speaking with tech news site PC Pro, Nokia executive VP Kevin Shields said that a memory card slot would have ruined the clean design of the phone.

"We started with the premise that we wanted an uncompromised physical form," Shields told PC Pro. "To put an SD card slot in it would have defiled it."
Quote:
"Most people aren't using the storage in their phone, anyway," Shields added.

Nothing says the SD slot had to be visible The slot on my current phone is hidden completely unless you remove the back.

Nonsense. Nothing prevents you from keeping the SD card under the battery cover, like on the S3 for instance. This is just marketing talk, this "would defile" is pure BS.

We call that "a bullsh!t explanation to avoid stating the real reason". As noted above, who says the SD card slot has to be on the outside of the phone? And even if it is, I'm assuming there's also a hole in the outside for the headphones, and another for the charger, right? I guess those two openings don't "defile" it?

And I've used the hell out of the supplemental storage on every device I've ever owned except my iPhone and iPad...oh, yeah; those don't have supplemental storage. Especially if this beast has a 12mp camera.

I don't have any issue with companies not putting SD card slots in their device; that's their business decision. Just don't try to convince me that I'm wrong for wanting one, or offer some reason that is utter crap. I'd respect them a lot more if they said, "We decided against an SD slot; deal with it."

I think two years from now those will begin to disappear too.

Bluetooth headsets and capactive charging through the case.

The Lumia 920, on the other hand, has only two ports: a micro-USB charging port and the headphone socket. Yet, even that meagre number of slots caused headaches for Nokia's engineers, according to Shields.

"The micro-USB port is an RF [radio frequency] nightmare," he said, adding that it can interfere with the various other radios in the device without proper shielding. "Wireless charging is effectively a radio, so is NFC. Then you've got LTE, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth - and you've got a lot of antennas."

Eventually, won't they just beam the calls right into my brain from the cell provider's headquarters? I won't need a handset at all.

And, regardless of whether or not they will be there in two years, they are both currently there, so his explanation is still crap. In two years maybe that will be a valid explanation.

On the Nook the Sd Card was in the back. You had to remove the cover to get to it!

Also if you try to change the lock screen image to something that doesn't have that pretty teal in it, it gets rejected. So you don't defile the design.

Some form of wireless charging would be cool.. but not limiting headsets to bluetooth. There will always be some who want the physical connection.

To put a spare tire in it would have defiled it.
