Default New Smartphone geek porn!

Anyone see the new micro card SanDisk is putting out? 128Gb, class 10, and designed with Android in mind! Granted, we can't use it in the Ultra line, but definitely a way way cool development!!!

fat-fingered and Maxx-ed out.

You could kind of use it, with a USB stick. These phones support USB OTG and with StickMount, can mount USB as additional storage.
I can envision a USB MicroSD reader that is barely any thicker than a MicroSD card, sticks to the back of the phone, and has a flat flex cable that goes to a flush USB plug. Something kind of like what they do with those universal wireless stick-on charger receivers.

Android 4.4 doesn't support USB OTG without a third party app

I'm actually shocked this hasn't already been accomplished. After seeing the universal qi chargers pop up I started thinking of all us without expandable storage that would use it. I know I would buy one in a heartbeat.
