Just seen, USB otg adapters for SD cards are also an option:

When connected via USB, the nexus 7 and other Android devices
can be mounted via MTP, i.e. using 'simple-mtpfs'.
Timestamps are broken, but the following works reasonably well
for me: rsync -rv --size-only /mnt/store/src /mnt/nexus7

A colleague found an further solution for the 'not enough storage
on the tablet' issue: there are now boxes sold with a harddisk 
inside, a battery and a wlan accesspoint.
