One reason I regulary remove my uSD card from the FR to
put it in a card reader is the incredible slow USB 1.1 port.
1GB with 12 Mbit/s is more than 11 min (but 12 Mbit/s will never be reached)
The PC world moves to USB 3, so it should be possible
to include USB 2 to GTA02 successors...

If I compare the size of my Palm TX with my FR, even a SD would be possible.
But uSD is probably more up to date and allows more compact cases.
