This is the first tablet (still happy with my TouchPad) that's even peaked a raised eyebrow from me. And it's all down to the USB slot, HDMI & that full size SD slot. Very tempted, the full size SD slot is exactly what i'd want.
In spite of the potential to add a further 128GB via an SD card, I would still like to be seeing 64GB - 128GB+ of on-board native flash storage instead of the miserably anaemic 16-32GB offerings that flood this sector.
If or when the 32GB version dances around the £320 mark, then I could be tempted.
Annoyingly, this tablet does not support NTFS on the SD card or via external USB drives through USB host, unlike the Acer Iconia 510, which does.
But the Toshiba has USB Ethernet support, whereas the Acer doesn't. The Tosh has a better screen and it's lighter and had Gorilla glass, the Acer has vastly superior battery life and better sound quality, the Tosh supports charging whilst using a USB host device, the Acer doesn't....
It's a sea of choices out there with Android tablets. It's easy to get confused if you don't do your homework.
What's so useful about having a full size SD slot any more than a micro sd slot? Yes, you "can directly insert memory cards from your camera without an extra adapter" but equally I can't insert micro sd's from my mobile phone without an extra adapter.
Purchased this tablet anyway - very impressed. Only snag was not playing HD MKV files - had to get Diceplayer. Sound volume at max was also a bit low.
