Wow, too bad to the little end has to use an adapter to be used with an Android device. I would have prefered the memory stick portion to be mini usb and have an adapter to increase the size to regular usb. A little tiny usb drive that would fit nicely on a my Nexus 7 Gen II could be handy for file transfers and keeping track of work files.

shuffman37, the whole point of this is that the device is dual access. The flash drive connects to your device (cell phone or tablet) and functions as a normal storage medium for it and the normal USB end plugs into your Laptop or Desktop PC and transfers files wirelessly.

The tech is USB OTG. More info here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB_On-The-Go

I understand the point of dual access, but having an adapter then the drive sticking out of a tablet doesn't make it very handy to use. I'd rather see a native mini-b usb drive that uses adapter to plug into a standard device. That way I only have one thing plugged into the tablet, that would smaller and more reliable when moving around. 1 point of failure vs 2, etc.

Think about having a 1" long thing where your hand goes, vs a little 0.25" long drive that is one piece. Be a lot more user friendly being just the end piece that looks like a usb receiver.
