Would you buy a MicroSD mini reader for Android smartphones and tablets?

Do you know those simple and brilliant ideas that when you see: Dude ** o, as I didn't think of that beforeThey are all raising money on the Kickstarter crowdfunding platform. Today, An external card reader that allows the use of a microSD card by Android mobile devices has started to make noise on the network. What does this tool represent for Google operating system users? The end of criticism is the lack of microSD support for smartphones and tablets, such as the Nexus 7, for example.

The microSD card reader is slightly larger than a fingernail and can be connected via USB port to a smartphone or tablet. Many of the current high-end smartphones on the market are designed with the unibody feature, without the ability to split the hardware in two. For this reason, they do not support external memory card, much to the despair of many Android fans. With this market focus in mind, the developers Andy & Rich have created a microSD reader to provide greater storage capacity for your smartphone or tablet via the micro-USB port of Android devices.

The small device supports microSDHC cards up to 32GB and microSDXC cards up to 6GB, so if you still criticize Google devices, that's a good reason to invest in this idea. The product is compatible with the following devices:

  • Samsung Galaxy S2, S3, Note and Note 2 (No super user privilege or third party apps required)
  • Motorola RAZR M, RAZR HD, RAZR MAXX HD, (No super user privilege or third party apps required)
  • HTC One X +, EVO 4G LTE (Sprint), DROID DNA (No super user privilege or third party apps required)
  • Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Google Nexus 7, and Nexus 10 (Super User Privilege Required and Third Party Apps like StickMount or USB OTG)
  • Nook Color, Kindle Fire (on HD) (Custom ROM required, like CyanogenMod)
  • Nexus 4 is not supported.

Using Kickstarter, the brothers seek an amount of $ 5,000 needed to complete the project. But the idea is so good that in just four days they have already collected over $ 17,000. The campaign still runs for another 26 days if you are considering funding the duo.

As a Nexus 7 user, I support this project. Being able to carry a huge amount of GB in video and / or audio format is a dream come true. Ok, many will say that they do not need so much space, for these I say that many others, like me, do not give up loading 16GB of music per steel, for example.
