Sanwa USB Reader Copies Memory Cards and More to Your Android Gadgets

 |  |  |  |  |  |  |  March 24, 2012


If you own an Android smartphone or tablet, I bet on more than one occasion you have wanted to transfer images, video, or other data between the smartphone and an external device. This new media reader accessory called the Sanwa USB Reader/Dock will help you out.

The device will work on certain Android smartphones running Honeycomb 3.1 and up thanks to the enhanced USB host mode those devices have.  It also has the ability to connect USB drives and microSD, SD and miniSD memory cards. The media dock adapter even allows you to plug in a mouse and actually see a pointer on the screen, or you can also plug in a gamepad to control video games. However, it can only supply 100 mA max power to attached peripherals.

At this point, it’s known to work with the Samsung Galaxy II, Sony Xperia NX SO-02D; Sony Xperia acro HD IS12S; Toshiba REGZA Phone T-01D; and Sony S-series tablet, and it’s likely to work with other recent Android gadgets as well.

The Sanwa USB Reader is available direct from Sanwa Japan [JP] for ¥3,280 (~$40 USD). It sure would be great if somebody would make one of these for iOS devices too.
