This is the breakout board for the Ben Nanonote.

This is an equivalent product from spark fun.

The advantage to the adapter originally posted by Benjamin is the 
semi-standard headers for JTAG and UART already attached to the 
breakout. Where as with the two above some soldering is required.

The Sparkfun one is useful in that you don't have to remove the 
break-out board to quickly switch between using the microSD and the 
UART/JTAG functionality. Care just has to be take so as not to use them 
both at the same time.

This is the equivalent product for full sized SD.
