PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless "The Verge has learned that HTC's Chief Product Officer, Kouji Kodera, left the company last week. Kodera was responsible for HTC's overall product strategy, which makes the departure especially notable on the heels of the global launch of the make-or-break One. It's not just Kodera. In the past three-odd months, HTC has lost a number of employees in rapid succession." I really hope HTC pulls it together.

And if your phone had 64-128GB of storage? Would you still need microsd?

I'm sure someone has said the same thing before about having more that 64KB of RAM in a computer. Anytime a "comfortable" computer resource threshold is set, software and technology finds a way to require more for perfectly reasonable reasons. After all, who doesn't want HD video on those gorgeous new screens?

Besides, phone manufacturers will always artificially inflate the price of onboard flash to insane levels, making MicroSD a more cost-conscious choice. And having a removable storage media can be pretty useful in a bunch of scenarios, such as backups or phone-phone and computer-phone data transfers.
