So I know everyone hates Windows 8RT and all but why not mention that it should work fine with all RT devices and they even have one on their list of compatible tested devices.

It has a full size and a micro USB port. The inclusion of a full-size port implies compatibility with any device with a full-size USB port, including laptops, desktops, and Windows tablets. The micro USB port isn't compatible with every device with a micro USB port. Only Android devices that support USB On The Go can use this as an external storage device. That micro USB port is what makes this special and it's why the article points out Android phones and tablets. If you have a Surface RT you can just use any standard USB drive you want, even external hard drives.

The xps 10 doesn't have full sized usb and uses micro ports as do other windows rt tablets. The only one I can think of off hand that has a full sized usb port is the Surface tablet. So far ive yet to have any problems plugging anything into the micro usb using native or converters.
 
Why would a storage key be compatible with specific versions of software? Other than the file system used, it should be passive and allow anything to read it and write to it. Is there secret sauce active software on it? Or is the multi-OS support with a specific Android level named nonsense to make it seem impressive?

Android doesn't natively support a lot of devices being plugged into it nor does it have a native file manager that would facilitate using a flash drive plugged into it.

Android is getting there on device support and RT already does. So the micro usb on this thing is pretty awesome. I just thought it was silly to go on and on about how useful this is for specific android devices when anything with windows rt will be very happy for it and not having to carry around a converter to micro usb is awesome.
