  • Do Android tablets let you transfer files, (photos, docs, etc), via Windows Explorer?

    My dad wants a tablet of some kind and doesn’t have any Apple products thus I have a hard time recommeding an iPad as everything needs to go via iTunes.

    Yes

    Connects just like any USB drive. Drag and drop. Done.

    Yes, they do. One of many reasons I bought my father a Samsung tablet recently. He loves it.

    Thanks to all.

    Any suggestions on a “good” one? Nexus 7 or 10 for instance.

    or wifi my samsung galaxy tab2 10.1 uses file maager hd to wirelessly stream any video file from my nas box so the kids watch their fave stuff I have saved in bed with me on sat morns. excellent kit. Doing the same with the ipad is like pulling teeth.

    TSC, father has a big Samsung, and I have a small one. Both are very impressive. Am going to replace my old Xoom with a full sized one if I can get one duty free at the weekend!

    Dropbox?

    Dropbox. Intersting, how can I then decide the location on my iPad to save the file too?

    I have one for work purposes but have zero Apple experience.

    This is just a source of continuing frustration with our ipad.

    dropbox works great ont he samsung, it only stores a small percentage of the stuff on it, but you can just export to any file location you want.

    Haven’t tried any tablets other than nexus 7 and iPad but I’d go for a nexus 7 or 10. I generally just use the iPad for watching stuff on now and use my nexus 4 for browsing, chatting etc…
