    why don't manufacturers ever make a device (phones/tablets/etc...) with multiple SD/microSD slots ..

    AFAIK all have only one ..

    dual or four or more slots would rock ..

    we would love to have a phone / media with expanded capacity for media ..

    what are the actual reasons?
    what do you suspect? what do u think? what do u know for sure?

    lets discuss ...

    thank you...

    I've yet to see anything like it, either, but I suspect there is a reason for it. Regardless, I amplified your title to better cover the question.

    I'd imagine to keep costs down.

    I'd imagine it's only a few dollars more; if manufactures can have dual sim slots, why not dual SD slots?

    I figure real estate of a device is at a premium. It makes more sense to increase the gigabytes of sd card for data storage than occupying another sd slot in the phone.

    With cloud storage these days SkyDrive Box Dropbox iCloud Remote File Access SD card storage may be a thing of the past pretty soon.

    Have you seen what Apple is doing to the laptop line, first went the CD rom.

    I'd sooner trust a physical storage medium to a cloud storage one.

    Saying that, I host my own encrypted cloud.

    Agreed, I'm a reader of William Binney so I get your meaning. But for the less security inclined these are merely options.

    Agree. And I like to have both. If the cloud went 'poof' then the physical storage is still there and if something happened to the physical storage the cloud is there as a backup. Chances are both won't go wrong at the same time.
