Tablet, 32GB limit on SD card

Hello out there,

as one of the early sailors, I'd like to know why SD cards are restricted to SDHC, i.e. to a maximum of 32GB. Is there any chance that this will change before the tablet gets delivered, or afterwards, e.g. by a firmware update? I'd be extremely happy to see SDXC cards supported.

Cheers & thumbs up :-)

Edited: I assume that transferring files to the tablet from an external storage using OTG is not affected by the type of file system on the tablet. But what are the consequences of using btrfs with regard to mounting the device on my laptop as a usb mass storage, i.e. do I then need a btrfs driver on my laptop (OSX, sorry ;-) or is this transparently handled by the usb driver stack itself?
