There are a number of products today that make use of the fingernail-sized microSD memory card format. You’ll find the card in a variety of cell phones, media players, and other gizmos. That’s all well and good, but what’s the easiest way to read and write data onto those things? You don’t want a big clunky reader for a tiny memory card, right?
While the USB microSDHC card reader that came with my SanDisk 8GB microSDHC card is already pretty small, measuring just a touch bigger than the Pico line of tiny flash drives from Super Talent, this Brando reader is even smaller.
You know how there are those Bluetooth adapters that are barely bigger than the size of just a USB connector? This USB microSD card reader is effectively the same size, jutting out of the side of your notebook by only a few millimeters. In this way, you could probably keep it in there even when you toss your laptop in your bag.
Based on the pictures, it looks like the microSD card actually goes int the USB connector itself. That’s pretty unique. You eject the reader by hitting the small yellow button. Check it out at Brando for about ten bucks.
