The model we tested was a 4GB unit; additional sizes include 8GB, 16GB,and 32GB. Likewise, we used a green model however other colors include black, white, violet, and pink.

    I use a micro-USB OTG cable to read standard flash drives on a Galaxy Nexus. They are easy to find for $5-$10. It also supports attaching a USB keyboard or mouse.
