Yes, and that the magic of open source. If some people are really 
interested they could manage to do it :)

That's a pain, we have everything (open spec, sdio wifi device with open 
source driver) and we only miss 9 wires to connect the device to the host.

Couldn't we imagine an adapter ?
a male microsd plug, then a thin wire an a female sd plug.

But is there extra space under the back cover for that ?
It's hard to see on the wiki pictures.


PS : according to wikipedia microSD has only 8 pins, so may be it is impossible
to do plug sdio on microsd slot.
