Default Extra Ports on A2 and any HD Player?

Does anybody know what those ports are in the front of the AD2, king of like USB ports but smaller. The manual said these will be used at a later point?

They are USB extension ports .
"two specialized USB ports (labeled "Extension" ports"). The ports' function, according to Toshiba, is to add extra storage for implementing features such as the ability to download supplemental content. As yet, however, no titles use them."

Makes you wonder what the first title to use those supplemental content will be.. probably not until mid 2008 will we get to see its usage..
