64GB Google Nexus 10? Nah, just a mistake
0. phoneArena 31 Oct 2012, 12:45 posted on
With Samsung announcing 16GB and 32GB of the Google Nexus 10 on Monday, we wondered where Samsung Korea was getting the information about the 64GB version of the beastly tablet that it posted on its site; considering that this version of the Google Nexus 10 was later removed, we got our answer...

Would buy a nexus 4 and 10 were it not for the lack of microsd slot. And I know I'm not the only one

Scroll to the bottom or use the find feature of your browser and check out my comment on the lack of external storage, I am: Kerry Coleman
If you agree, feel free to +1 or reply in kind, I also would love to hear good reply's on the subject

I completely agree with you on that. Not only is it a burden on data caps, but what about long trips without a direct data connection. Like camping, I would like to be able to throw a few movies, some shows, music, and apps to mess around with. But I would fill up that 16 gigs in no time, three hd movies and I'm, done, or a big game like The dark night rises uses a bunch. I love the cloud, but there are times when I would not have access to a data connection and not enough storage to enjoy all my content.

You're just pointing out how the partitions are mounted on Android & that largely depends on the rom used. Some like CM will use 'mnt/emmc' and others 'mnt/sdcard' or 'mnt/sdcard/external_sd'. Afaik the internal SD is mapped under the 'sdcard' path and there's nothing wrong with that.
The external memory card is usually denoted by 'mnt/external_sd' and 'storage/sdcard1' on some roms but I don't see where the issue lies. Mainstream apps by default will be installed in the 'mnt/sdcard' location regardless of how it was mounted and those can later be partially moved to the external sd.
16GB is also a darn small amount of storage, with the system and gapps taking some space you'd be practically left with around 12GB of usable space, there won't also be able to have a lot of multimedia content & HD games installed without running out of space. They should also have produced 32/64GB versions instead of trading off space for a low price. What's the point of releasing a high end powerful device without a decent amount of space? That doesn't make any sense.

After reading what you wrote, I have to wonder if you even truly read what I wrote...
I went over a few things:
Devices (with external memory) mount the internal memory as /sdcard, thus your pictures, and everything else is default saved internally instead of to your ACTUAL sdcard causing the confusion he noted was the reason for not including the ability for external memory.
With the lack of external memory, you run out of space and into carrier B/W limitations absurdly fast
When everything is saved to internal, if your devce fails, you lose everything not cloud sync'd and any backup's you make become pointless (that arent backed up to a PC)...
You could also draw conclusions to other issues directly related to the mount system when it comes to /sdcard, or other B/W and storage limitation issues...
Needless to say, my 16GB TF101 is full, its 32GB MicroSD is full, and I have a 64GB in the TF101's dock thats full as well... The same goes for the 10GB of storage on my Galaxy Note and its 16GB MicroSD as well!

Don't buy it then, simple as that.
There's other tablets that do support Micro SD slot. No one is forcing you to buy this tablet.

Me too. Selling my HTC one x before it drops value. Also any ever think that Google doesn't want to canabalise it's partners.

12. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5647; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
yeah, same here. between that and the 64GB on my MAXX HD i should be fine. the 64GB should be an option too though.

I have a galaxy nexus with 16 gigs and I never felt the need for more storage.
I just keep my music and pics on the cloud.

what if you run out of data? what if you are in a low coverage zone?
24. KingKurogiii (Posts: 5647; Member since: 23 Oct 2011)
those are two questions you never have to ask with Unlimited Data from Verizon. ;)

Who the hell set the standard for 16GB 32GB and 64GB versions???
Why not use 20GB 40GB 80GB instead? :l
18. theking_13 (Posts: 4; Member since: 31 Oct 2012)
Because of binary numbers. 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, I'm sure you see the pattern.
15. _Bone_ (Posts: 2140; Member since: 29 Oct 2012)
I love this tablet but even at the $400 prize point (which beats the iPad like a stepchild) not starting at 32GB and going all the way up to 64 and 128GB per $100 is a misstep. I'm planning to buy one when the 32GB's price drops, but then there may be other excellent products with a microSD slot. Irregardless of cloud services such a device shouldn't have less than 64GB storage, let alone less than 32GB.
19. theking_13 (Posts: 4; Member since: 31 Oct 2012)
If you need the Micro SD slot that bad, there's going to be more options down the road. No need to buy this specific tab.

Actually with increasing woes over decreasing DRAM market I can't understand why manufacturers not add more memory to such devices
