Over the last week, I've read seemingly countless complaints about the lack of local storage on the Nexus 7. "Why isn't there a 32GB version?" "Why isn't the 16GB version cheaper? It only costs them $10 more to make." "An SD card slot would have been easy to put in." The list goes on, and the complaints seem rooted in a belief that a cavernous local storage capacity is a necessity, not a luxury, for most users.
Well, I'm going to have to disagree. It's just not. In fact, no person in my family with an Android phone (three) has ever come dangerously close to filling the internal storage space on their handsets - most of which are getting quite long in the tooth (the phones, not the family members).
