And of course nobody would ever want to print anything or upload photos from their camera to this device while using the mouse at the same time.

And even that tiny sliver of people will upgrade their dinosaurs to connect via wifi and bluetooth. A few months ago I bought a hl-2270dw and love it. No need to set up printer sharing and always-on computers.
Don't worry, you won't miss those extra USB ports much.

The only reason I can think of for vanishingly small number of people wanting to load photos onto their browser-only netpad is, a vanishingly small number of people bought the thing.
