Bendy Secure Digital/USB memory cards???

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

One can purchase Secure Digital cards that bend in the middle
to reveal a USB plug.  My laptop has a SD card slot, but it's slower
than a slug.  USB transfer is VERY much faster.

Any body got experience with these cards?
The thinness reqirement of SD suggests that the usb plug and hinge
assembly would be rather delicate??
And I can't find ANY specs on the USB port.  No indication of transfer
speed or even if they're usb1.1 or usb2.0.
There's also the question of power consumption with the extra interface?
Don't wanna run down the pda battery in SD mode.

Anybody got experience with these?
Thanks, mike
