For security reasons, bank apps and other apps that store confidential info cannot be stored on any memory card and purchased apps cannot either (this prevents piracy). If I was a developer and knew that my $2 app can be copied onto a memory card on any platform, I would not write for that platform. Google prefers free ad-infested apps because that's why the Android platform exists (spread Google ads).
Those apps can be moved freely about.

Never mind them , its just so that they can patent it, "mobile device with squared corners and more than 120gb of ss internal storage", then splash in their website, "re-engineered ipad with 128gb of storage, first of its kind, apple leading with innovation".

Apple releases iPad 128GB the day before BB10 Launch??
Really, with the availability of SD cards, not having an SD slot is almost unforgivable now a days.

Re: Apple releases iPad 128GB the day before BB10 Launch??
One has to wonder when and if apple will ever allow an SD card or expandable memory as an "option". One would think that would be an easy upgrade and make the ipad way more flexible. Still people seem content to buy some peripheral cord and device to be able to do that. Now with that said, if RIM launches a new tablet I hope to god they have some type of memory slot on it this time as well! Funny how people will pay more for things but get less. Tablets do less and are not as conenient as laptops but we have to have them!!! Same as phones, sure watching a movie while travelling is fine once in a while but do I really want that as my only device? Oh yes, I have my phone. We are going backwards in terms of hard drive capacity and processor speed but seem to think convenience trumps it all. Batteries dummies, we need a major breakthrough in battery technology to really sail into the future!!!! At least apple is getting no free media response today. No mention on any news I am watching...not snappy enough apple, should have made it thinner and lighter!!!

RIM laughs at your overpriced hardware
WILL Apple also increase the price of their Macbook's as to not be deemed inferior in quality
NOT give a duck about Apple product rerelease including underpowered minis and price gouging storage increases
LOSE is the only thing Apple has left to do, the pedestal is high, so it will be a long slow descent.

lmao. i would be SO pissed if i bought a new iPad and then a new new iPad because i thought i would have to wait for a year for the 128gb.
i think the only reason for 128gb tablet is because iPad needs all the apps to do basic web stuff and because you cant stream videos you need to put them on the harddrive.
I took an 8 hr bus ride to ottawa in the summer and the bus had wifi... i watched the olympic opening ceremonies (which i did have on the harddrive) and then stream two movies... total space on harddrive was 4GB (HD version of ceremony) with the movies it would have been over 10GB.
My cousin has all kinds of tv network apps installed on her ipad to allow her to watch videos from their websites. they total to over 1GB (it isnt a lot, but it also isnt necessary if you own a flash playing tablet).
You also have to consider the fact that the 128GB is needed bc there is no sd card slot. at $800 plus tax this is crazy. you can but a 16gb tablet for half that much and buy two 64gb sd cards for under $100, then you have 140GB for around $500...

Besides, removable storage devices are becoming a thing of the past thanks to bigger chips and cloud services. You have to skate to where the puck is going and not to where it is.
Within ten years, you will be holding a 200 TB device in your hand.
Will you still be using an SD card then?
