Low-profile microSD card adapter for Raspberry Pi
http://www.adafruit.com/products/966

Make your Pi a little slimmer with this microSD card adapter board. It slides in where the SD card goes but is half the length. Pop in a microSD card for a sleeker machine. The microSD card holder is a push-push type so you can push on the edge that sticks out to remove the card when necessary.

We'll be shipping'em in a week or so!

Funny that I was looking last week for something similar I was tempted to replace the SD Card holder with a spring loaded Micro SD version but was unable to find a viable seller.

Any change of putting them on eBay??

we will make sure our reseller(s) have them - and many of them have stores on ebay as well.

cheers!

they're not in stock yet, but will be very soon - once they are you can "add to cart" and calculate shipping.

Are there any UK or EU suppliers for this board?
I know ModMyPi has a similar solution however the microSD card can't be swapped (atleast it looks that way) without removing the adapter.
Even the cheapest shipping to the UK works out more then the cost of the item

Both side load, meaning to swap or remove the micro SD card you have to remove the adapter :| .
Kinda defeats on of the big benefits of using a micro SD card, reduced wear on the SD slot.
