Default Why doesn't the Venue (android) get more love?

It's got GPS and MicroSD capability, neither of which are present in the much more expensive Kindle FireHDX.
And the Nexus 7 doesn't have the MicroSD slot.
So is the processor the only reason why Venue doesn't get more love or there something else that I'm missing?

Also, what are the chances we'll see CyanogenMOD on this someday soon?

I have had mine a week, and I like it.. but some stuff just doesn't work. Dolphin Jetpack will not install, can't get Flash to work.. Like there is something wrong in the hardware?

One word. Marketing. Dell did very little to get the word out that they were going back into the Android tablet business. Thus, it has been slow to pickup any market traction.

Flash and Android is the problem. You'll have to google it. Has nothing to do with Dell. I think there is a workaround out there if you're on an older Jellybean.
