Google While Microsoft is unveiling all about Windows Phone 8, Google ruined the party a little bit by 'leaking' all about Android 4.2, the Nexus 10 tablet, and the new Nexus phone, the LG Nexus 4. There's some pretty awesome stuff in here from Google - except for the fact the devices themselves are kind of ugly.

Removable storage means VFAT, which is patented.

I agree that it may be related to patents. But the devices all support USB OTG mode where you can connect a USB flash drive with VFAT. So that can't be the reason.

SDXC cards however may come with exFAT, which indeed requires royalty payments. The SD card association has really painted itself into a corner by choosing a patent encumbered filesystem.
