I understand your solution.  However, my comment was specific to the Nexus 7 and Kingston Mobilelite hub and the goal of copying my CF cards to either a harddrive or a flash drive.  Both devices only offer a single USB port.  So I would need to use a powered USB hub, not a great back woods option, or a double transfer process; CF to SD, then SD to HD.  One I have not bothered to try is using a CF reader on the Nexus and transferring to the Kingston via WiFi.  I have not test this since I assume the transfer would be fairly slow.  I could potentially switch to SD media in my E-5 or use the dual slots to copy in the camera from CF to SD.
