5,754 backers pledged $70,864 to help bring this project to life.

Yes, it works with HTC One (and First)

Finally HTC One is available in the US. We tested and verified that our little reader works with HTC One out of the box, no rooting or privileged software is needed. As a bonus, we tested and verified that it works with HTC First as well.

After having taken away the built-in MicroSD slot from their phones and left users in the cold without USB-OTG since a couple of years ago, HTC is now doing the right thing by supporting USB Mass Storage through the USB-OTG port. Maybe it is no coincidence that their sales started to tank a couple of years ago. Now HTC rectified part of that, maybe their sales will start to tick up a little?

Oh, one more thing -- we reached our 2nd stretch goal today, so every reader will come bundled with a USB-to-MicroUSB adapter so you can use it on your PC as well. It works on Windows 7/8, Mac, and Linux. Please help us spread the word and keep it going. Our next stretch goal is $68k, there will be something once that is reached. Stay tuned.

      USB 3.0 doesn't matter right now people. The majority of cards can't even use all of the bandwidth for USB 2.0.

      Cool. Thanks :)

      Could the 'new' USB-to-MicroUSB adapter be designed so it could all fit together; so the Cap could fit onto the USB-to-MicroUSB adapter while plugged into the Reader so you can have it all available with you right on your keychain?

      Bipin how do you expect them to include a 64G sd card, value ~$64, when you pledged just $12? I wouldn't expect an sd card at all, the point is to provide your own card. I intend to use this to look at camera pictures and add swappable media storage on my Xoom2 which their current design meets wonderfully.

      Good Idea Bipin :) Fully agree.

      will $68k provide a free 64GB sdcard, i doubt it but plz not 2-8GB cards, they r dirt cheap anyways, improving material or functionality would be more preferred and now that it will come with the adapter to connect to PC for file copy, might as well just provide option to put SDcard in the enclosure rather than slide in and out option which will only make dust go in and chances of sd card drop etc or removed and damaged

      Hi Guys Looking forward to launch, this one bit of kit I can't wait to get:) Is there any plan to upgrade the service level to 1 for the Nexus? or is it purely the lack of "flash" that causes it to be service level 2 Keep up the great work

    11. Creator Nial Pearce on April 19, 2013

      Nice! This is going to be a handy bit of kit for my One X.

    12. Creator Jason Dunn on April 19, 2013

      USB on the Go support has been in HTC phones since the first Jellybean software updates, as well as any phone shipping with that OS (so from the DROID DNA onward).

    13. Creator Bipin on April 19, 2013

      u should announce whats it going to be at $68k so more ppl can want it and pledge more quickly, keeping them in the dark and providing peanuts wont help

    14. Creator Kevin Torres on April 19, 2013

      This is great news! Just got my HTC One today.

    15. Creator Andy & Rich on April 19, 2013

    16. Creator Kenneth on April 19, 2013
