    So, I have the Moto Droid (got it for christmas) and I see where the 16gb card that came with it goes, but I have a little 1gb I wanted to see if I could fit next to it, but I cannot, for the life of me, figure out where the second one goes. I was told that you can have 2 16gb cards in there. Any insight? The slot next to the first one is completely blocked off from what I could see.

    There is only one slot on the droid. You can have ONE 32GB card once available.

    IF they become available. Seriously though; 16 Gig is pretty damn beefy for a phone. This aint an Iphone, and does not try to be. It's Much more......... aware.

    Just a tip. You should ensure that you have a Class 6 SD card in your droid. They are 6mb/sec fast. The faster your card is, the faster your droid will save files and so forth to the SD card. This class is the speed of the SD card, not the size of the card - that's the other number.

    Yes, a Class 6 is 3 times as fast as the card that came with the Droid, but where would one see that increased speed? Perhaps photos would be written to the card faster, but this isn't exactly a camera that I would use for rapid photo taking. Where would I see the difference in speed? Class 6, 16 GB cards are $50 to $60. What does that expenditure get me? I'm guessing little or nothing, but I don't really know.

    This is intriguing... I did not know sd cards had different speeds, and any opportunity to increase my speed I will take it!!!

    I'm sure this was intentional to keep this exclusive to Verizon. I wouldn't blame them, but it is an inconvenience to people who want to travel overseas.

    My experience has been the higher class cards seem much less reliable and more prone to errors.

    Thus far I've yet to own a handheld that could outrun a class two card.

    Can the motodroid?

    My guess is that it shouldnt take too much in order to make it read an external storage device through the micro usb port. I played with it a bit using the charging cord hooked up to a linux pc.

    Do the keychain micro sd to micro usb readers exist?

    Do you mean one of these?

    I think Verizon sells them but you can get them online and probably from ebay for next to nothing.
