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.
