Wouldn’t it be nice if you could transfer files from your thumbdrive directly onto your Android phone without having to rely on your computer? Well, the folks over at Sansa have come up with a solution. Called the Sansa USB Reader this handy little gadget plugs into your phone’s micro USB port and gives you access to a full-sized USB port and a memory card reader. With the USB port, you’ll be able to plug in your own thumb drive or digital camera to transfer files to and fro your phone. If you have an external USB keyboard, you can use it to be more productive when typing on your Android device.
However, the Sansa USB Reader seems to be limited to only a handful of devices at the moment – the Samsung Galaxy S2, Sony Xperia NX SO-02D, Sony Xperia arco HD IS12S, Toshiba REGZA Phone T-01D, and Sony S-series Tablet. If you’re interested in picking one up, it’s available now for 3,280 yen ($40).
