The C8051F3xx also have the interesting feature of tuning their
RC oscillator based on the USB signal they see from the host.
So they don't need a crystal.

V-USB can do this too (which is easier with low-speed anyway
since the SOF is just a pulse.)

Then you need a decent amount of RAM plus a uSD card holder ;-)
BTW, from the "no frills" department, these holders are rather

Push in, pull out. No fancy spring-loaded mechanism yet still
not nearly as fumbly as the ones with a hinged cover.
