Google "The first Google-influenced Motorola phones will start to appear in the second half of 2013, Wicks said, and if you like smaller form-factor devices or stock Android, you're going to be excited." This is exactly what the market needs, to be honest. Stock Android phones straight from Google that aren't Nexus devices. Nexus devices are nice, but are available in a limited set of countries only, and the Nexus 4 is continuously out of stock. Hopefully Motorola will do a better job on the availability front.

lucas_maximus is probably right on this one (never), but for flash storage you're better off using a simpler native file system (with no journaling) like ext2. Of course, that will probably never happen either... but if my phone supported ext2, my SD card would be formatted with it now. I already tried; Android stubbornly could not understand its kernel's own native file system.

Actually ext4 was second only to FAT32 in a filesystem benchmark on generic USB sticks. It's faster and safer, and unless you're beating the living hell out of your USB flash drive journaling isn't a big issue.
