    Think I'm in. What do y'all think does v2.1 of the 810 chipset fix the overheating issues ?

    So they recognize there's demand for more storage, but rather than give you an SD card they gouge you for like an extra $50.

    Exactly. They put the cost of memory on you. I'd rather pay for an SDcard slot.

    Right. Some people might only want an extra 16-32 gigs. For someone like me, I'd probably use my 64GB I've got laying around and wait for the price to drop on the 200GB Sandisk card.

    Didn't even see the 64GB version - so it's even worse than I said, paying an extra $100 for 64 more gigs when those cards can be had for $30 (if you don't have an extra one, which would be free).

    64gb price range seems best choice IMO
