Great post Harry!

Format your SD card to NTFS and you will see Android/Linux can read that format just fine.. My samsung phone was installed with FAT32. The problem with FAT however is Linux runs slower on it than ext. So some manufactures chose FAT while some perfer ext.

Yes and no. You'll have to root your device and update the kernel/module. Chances are somebody will have a hack for this shortly after the Nexus is released.

However be warned Google disables the ability to rent movies from their store if they detect a device has been rooted.
