    You need a USB card reader and space for it.

    Would there possibly be space in the tablet for an SD card slot?

    I would like to know what second solder points you are using. Do you just double up the power and ground? Then for data I see one additional connector, but I'd love to see a picture of your work.

    Anyone measured the impact on the battery time with this mod?

    Wow that's awesome. Could you do this for a Venue 11 Pro, the 5130 model with Atom? How much do the 128gb memory sticks cost? How does the transfer speed compare to the built in MMC?

    Standby I'll take some pics I'm adding my 2nd 64GB Kingston to my 2nd Venue Pro8. I'll take some nice pictures. I am at work and dont have my glue gun so I'll just try my best to run the wires nice for the camera but since its my own I dont really care about the wires. Dont think I ship these out with a crappy wire job though.

    I use my JBC Solder Station and 30 gauge wire for the modification.
