USB 1.1 vs USB 2.0 on gadgets

It negatively surprises me when I read supposedly clueful tech bloggers reporting on a new cellphone and saying that: “But USB 1.1 only? That’s like selling us a Cadillac without automatic windows“. Hey, your bottleneck is not the USB 1.1, but the phone’s flash memory (especially the internal flash). Except of some very high-end (and expensive) CompactFlash, SD and MemoryStickProDuo cards, most other card formats and cheap card brands are much slower than USB 1.1. So what are you blubbing about? You heard somewhere that USB 2.0 is faster than USB 1.1 and you keep copying that without ->thinking<- a bit?
