  • Using an USB Flash Drive with Android 3.x

    • How can I see the contents of the USB flash drive on my Android Tablet?


      On Android tablets, when you insert an USB Flash Drive or SD Card, you do not receive any prompt to view and use contents, or a notification that the drive is detected.


      To access the content of the drive, start the application first, and open the files in the USB flash drive from within the application. For example, you can use the Photo Gallery application to open images stored on the key.

  • Updates in Android 3.2

    • What's new in Android 3.2?

      The update from Android version 3.1 to version 3.2 brings a number of new fixes and advantages to the tablet software. The most noteworthy are:

      • Compatibility zoom
        Many applications in the Android Market are designed for a specific screen resolution, typically those of a smartphone, so that use on the larger screen of your tablet can be awkward. The new compatibility zoom makes the application fit and work on any size and type of screen. A menu icon in the system bar shows for applications that need this compatibility support.
      • Media Sync from SD card
        Applications that use media files can now directly access these files from a SD card. This means that you can put the media files on the SD card, and the system will automatically make those files accessible in applications.
