Default Adding storage, will this work?

I've been reading about workarounds to the low storage using a memory stick and a microUSB to female USB adapter. It seems logical for a PC but this is for a Android OS. Will the DNA recognize the memory stick and its contents?

I think this will be a great idea to carry movies when I'm traveling.

There has been discussion of this, NA said he would grab an OTG cable and test it out, but not sure if we will know prior to the phone releasing.

This was confirmed by HTC... don't think I will get teh device before release cause honestly dont think i will use it

That said, there is a space for 'usb storage' in the storage menu so I am rather certain it will work.
