We will probably see MORE hard drive tablet options which ALSO include flash media card slots as well. Hard drives also have some ground to recover to bring down prices to reasonable levels.
I agree. That’s why I bought a wi-fi tablet. I beleive they are

the small letters on iphones etc… These little android systems are
better then carrrying around a lap top. I hope everyone is able
to get one if they can this year.
