Teardown reveals the HTC Trophy's microSD card slot
Have you recently picked up Verizon’s HTC Trophy and you're not content with only the 16GB of storage it’s able to dish up out of the box? Well, if you seem like the handy and careful type, you’ll actually be able to swap it out with a larger 32GB one – but be warned, it requires some meticulous work.

Very much like it European brother, taking apart the handset uncovers a nifty microSD card slot that’s preoccupied by a sufficient SanDisk Class-4 16GB card. However, you can actually remove and replace it with a 32GB one to give you enough ample room – but you’ll need to verify that it’s certified to work beforehand. With its ability to shoot 720p videos and all, that 16GB card might not prove to be sufficient enough to match your needs.

Still, it’s worth mentioning that disassembling the handset yourself will obviously void your warranty – so be warned before you go start ripping things apart!

Interesting... I think they should just grow some and include the damn slot for the MicroSD cards!

My question is if Microsoft wanted the memory card to not be removable, then why not just put in a chip that has the capacity of the MicroSD cards? I think that if there is a MicroSD card inside the phone, then it should be able to be removed.
