The OpenMoko hardware and software offer several ways to transfer files to and from the system.

It is possible to write data to micro SD on a desktop machine with the suitable writer and then have it accessible from inside the OpenMoko after the card is inserted into that device. To get this working, the micro SD must be formatted in some filesystem that both OpenMoko and host understand (ext2, for instance).
The problem with this approach is that micro SD is difficult to access in the Neo. Both battery and even SIM card must be removed to reach it.
