Expand Nexus7 storage with microUSB OTG Cable

The storage capability of Nexus 7 tablet is only 8G or 16G. Unlike some other cheaper tablet, it has only a micro USB connectoer and supports OTG, without the larger standard USB connector. If you need to add external storage or transfer files by mounting flash drive to microUSB, it seems to be no way.

There is few flash drive with micro usb. However, with SANOXY Micro USB Host Mode OTG Cable Flash Drive SD T-Flash Card Adapter from Amazon, it's easy to expand the memory of Nexus 7 without adding too much volume. The product is good quality construction, and works flawlessly with my N7 and Stickmount.
