Steven,

Yes, removable storage can add complication, but no different in level than the floppy disk, USB thumb drive, external hard disks or DVD's do.

Sure, because of the size of modern SD chips and the flexibility of Android, there is the potential for some users to get confused. That said, anyone who has spent any amount of time in tech support can offer hours of entertaining stories about confused customers.

While there is some benefit to protecting customers from their own stupidity (Apple has made a practice of this), I suspect many of these design limitations are more likely put in to serve the interests of the manufacturers (as they tend to foster sales of that manufacturer's exclusively distributed products.

Jeff
