    Question: I am trying to decide between the Epic 4g Touch and the Galaxy Nexus. My major drawback is that there is no microsd slot. However, I saw on sprint's website that they have something called a Battery Boost and it double's as a microsd card reader. Has anyone successfully used this with their nexus or used and other sort of external card reader device?

    Thanks =)

    I work in a Tech related field. Have been in a tec

    i've not used anything like this. I will say though that i have not missed the sd slot one single time since owning the Nexus.

    I understand though that for some people it is a must have and that is fine. To each their own.

    That cable works a treat. Using a USB hub, I managed to get several USB drives on the phone. My Nexus literally had 500 GB of storage. :cool:

    Too bad USB host draws power like mad crazy (your powering other usb devices....on the phone battery).
