pc hard drive = mass storage for phone
flash drive(USB)/CDs = memory card for phone
computer games = apps for phones

>>I THINK YOU GET THE IDEA NOW... installing/playing it on permanent drives are better(i guess even the security of it).. also, a great +1 that you could put those installers at your mem card aswell (backup purposes, etc.,you decide)

Apparently they want WP to transform into Android.

My guess the decision was to avoid degrading the user experience - Some time or another we've all seen apps installed on SD card slow down or lag to a certain extent. Having them installed on phone memory will avoid this.

Not being able to put games on my SD card isn't that big of a deal to me, I don't play games that much, and I save my SD card for my jango music and all my videos.

Pa you guys should change the name of this article, very misleading.

Microsoft why do you have to be strange on the range. I hope you dont do this on your surface tablet computer. Microsoft the desktop PC and laptops use DVD read and writ drives on them for people to put programs, Music Videos, Documents and games in and out of the computer. Microsoft today flash memory is the way to go
are your technology people slow or retarded your smart phones and tablets need to be able to read and write data to different types of flash memory Media or else they will be useless to some people Damn why do you want to weaken your product be fore it even hits the market. you need a new technology staff the guys you have now
made a good "surface tablet" but damn don't they know it needs a medium to put data in and out of the the Tablet or smart phone let us know the reasons for this action
