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.

If I understand how the MTP file transfer protocol used by Android ICS and up works, a client computer never actually gets to see the filesystem on the SD card.


Correct, but only true as long as the card remains in the phone. If you take it out and put it in your laptop or camera or USB card reader, the format on the card becomes relevant.

Then again, considering how cumbersome handling MicroSD cards is, and how cost-effective pen drives get this day, I can't think of a use case where someone would want to do this.
