Yeah that is true.  But I couldn't share the big SD into the GTAxx.

I take pictures off my camera without a special app, they live down

I thought of this too but it isn't the way I think, it's really not very
extensible special case kind of access.

This issue of SD filesystem access remotely in nice ways feeds right
into the other lacks we have today like NetworkManager and so on.  We
first need a reliable automatically nailed up connection to the PC over
WLAN, Bluetooth, Ethernet over USB, whatever can find a "carrier" and
dhcp server.  When we have that working, it won't seem like such a big
step to have servers (dropbear for ssh/scp/fish, lighttpd for
webbpage-based file listing and upload, maybe a cut down samba if it can
work) on the phone start listening on the active interface automatically.

Until we have the underlying infrastructure for solid network transport
working properly, no advanced features involving networks (like SD
filesystem external availability) are going to succeed.
