Mini MicroSD Reader For Android Smartphones & Tablets

This has got to be the greatest Kickstarter I've ever seen. Lets all get together and back this. Those of you who are disturbed by the trend among Android manufacturers to forgo microSD card slots in newer phones and tablets might be interested in a Kickstarter project that aims to solve this problem once and for all. A device that plugs into your device’s microUSB port, this little accessory can handle microSD cards up to 64GB, and you can use it to copy files between your microSD card and your phone or tablet.

So far, support is separated into three classes: class 1 is supported out of the box, with no rooting required; class 2 might need a third-party app in order to function properly; and class 3 needs a custom ROM to function properly, like CyanogenMod. Support classes have been confirmed on these device models:
  • Class 1: Samsung Galaxy S II, Galaxy SIII, Note, Note 2, Motorola RAZR M, RAZR HD, RAZR MAXX HD, HTC One X+, EVO 4G LTE, DROID DNA, all tablets using RockChip and AllWinner chips, Sonicview N710
  • Class 2: Galaxy Nexus, ASUS Nexus 7, Nexus 10
  • Class 3: Nook Color, Kindle Fire (non-HD)
