  1. i don’t understand why Microsoft’s shooting themselves in the foot with their pricing, especially in the budget tier. if they made changes to their code so that OEMs can use Android hardware, their prices should be more in line with Android prices

  2. yes, it’s the 8 GB ROM that irks me plus I’m not saying it’s the worst bargain, I’m just wondering how Microsoft can hope to gain market share if their devices are (comparatively) overpriced

  3. Gbam!!! Case solved. I hope you are not angry about the 8GB internal memory anymore.

    I believe though that users of these kinda devices dont usually run out of memory on their devices…but to be safe, SD slot has been included 🙂
