Today I found a cool little gadget launching on the Kickstarter platform, a microSD card reader, it brings SD card support for Android tablets and smartphones that didn’t already have the compatibility.
Supporting SD Cards sized up to 32GB, the reader will allow you to read and write from MicroSD cards, just like if your phone already have a built-in port.
However the reader will only support certain devices, a bit of a bummer but the list of already tested devices is quite larger, including:
- Samsung Galaxy S2, S3, Note, Note 2; Class 1 support.
- Motorola RAZR M, RAZR HD, RAZR MAXX HD; Class 1 support.
- HTC One X+, Evo 4G LTE (Sprint), DROID DNA; Class 1 support.
- Samsung Galaxy Nexus, Google Nexus 7 & Nexus 10; Class 2 support.
- Nook Color, Kindle Fire (non-HD); Class 3 support.
- Tablets using RockChip & AllWinner chips; Sonicview N710; Class 1 support.
Class 1 is support out of the box, with no rooting required, class 2 requires 3rd party software and Class 3 will need a custom ROM.
However the creators of the project do say it should work with most other devices that support USB host or USB-OTG and has been tested with Qualcomm Snapdragon, Samsung Exynos 3, 4 & 5, Nvidia Tegra 2 & 3, TI OMAP; as well as on RockChip and AllWinner chips.
All in all it’s a pretty cool project, hit up the link below for more information and to pledge your money to grab one for yourself.
