    Yeah. At least it has USB otg. I usually keep a thumb drive on me for work, so I guess I'll have to store my media on that and plug it into my phone if I want to watch movies or whatever... still disappointing, though

    According to a translation on the second link, the front camera doesn't natively support video calling. I'm not sure how I feel about that =(

    Not having an sd card doesn't change anything for me.

    Hell don't even use my usb slot on my sgs3

    Good for you.
    That's different than saying, "it will have a microsd slot, it will have a microsd slot, it will have a microsd slot..."

    I can't understand why they wouldn't include an sdcard slot - so disappointing. I don't want one any more.
    :(

    I suspect they're taking a nasty page from Apple's playbook and are limiting the storage so they can milk more money out of people. I'll be willing to bet the 32gb version coming out later will be 60-100 bucks more, and the 64gb version (which I suspect will be released fairly soon after that) will be another 60-100 bucks more than the 32gb version. A microsd card slot costs pittance to include, so that's really the only reason to leave it out.

    I completely agree. Its so pointless to make 16gb 32gb and 64gb then to provide option for sd card. Its milking customer

    Nothing we/I ever said was official. We were just in the dark as you. That being said. My MI2 will be here in about 1 week so I can actually confirm 100%.

    Right, so if the admins were in the dark like us, the accurate response would have been, "hey, we're in the dark, we don't know either," wouldn't it? Not, "yes, it will." No explanation. Juust saying, for the sake of accuracy =)

    Yes, I plan on doing a review in pure English with images and what not. Mark probably will too.

    Yay! Thanks! Could I ask you a favour and ask you to check whether it's possible to skype using the front camera?
