    I just recently bought my first ipad ever (the ipad 2) and I am very happy with it but I chose the 16gb version because it was the lowest price and I think that its a bit ridiculous that the only way to increase my storage capacity is to buy another ipad.

    What exactly are Apples intentions behind not including an sd card slot? Its bad enough that they expect us to buy a new model every year. You would think that would be enough money for them.

    You chose to buy the cheapest one, you wasn't forced

    Apple don't expect you to purchase the new model ever year, that is your choice whether you do so or not

    You can always use the camera kit to store your photos and mp4 videos on sd cards

    Possibly the era of SD cards is fading out, in favor of data transfer via WiFi to other devices, or to the 'cloud' somewhere. Services and apps like DropBox, etc. are very convenient and fast. Maybe that is part of it. I can remember when Apple announced they were shipping a computer without a floppy disc drive and everyone was amazed....technology marches on.

    But the floppy disk drive was replaced with a cd drive. The ipad has no memory card slot at all.

    I also find it hard to believe that the sd card is fading tech considering every device except Apples uses one.

    Your response just proved my point that Apple is out to milk us for every penny we have.

    Don't think Apple will ever do that. They don't want users to access file system. Once file system is exposed, all evil acts ;) like loading of pirated apps will start to happen, which in turn mean less money coming to Apple's pocket.

    They need to look interest of shareholders before the consumers. :p

    Why are you criticizing a company for a purchasing decision YOU made? I just don't get it.

    My personal opinion is that APPLE will never allow sd cards or USB attachment to connect directly with "imachines" because they don't want to give backdoors to jail breakers.
    I don't expect sd or USB connection from APPLE.
