  • Moving applications to the SD card

    • How do I free up memory on my Android device?

      You can free up space on the internal storage memory of an Android smartphone or tablet, by moving applications from the internal memory to the micro-SD card:

      1. Open the Applications tab and tap Settings.
      2. Tap Applications, and next tap Manage applications.
      3. Tap the application to move, and then tap Move to SD card.


      You can move only applications you downloaded and installed yourself. Preinstalled applications cannot be moved.

  • 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 3.1

    • What is new in Android 3.1?

      The update from Android version 3.0 to version 3.1 brings a number of new fixes and advantages to the tablet software. The most noteworthy are:

      • Updated User Interface
        The user interface is smoother and faster, and further optimised for readability. Touching the home button, you return to the last used home screen, rather than the default one.
      • Improved support for USB devices
        Support has been added for more USB devices such as USB keyboards and mouse devices, and digital cameras.
      • Improved home screen widgets
        The home screen widget can be resized to allow a further degree of customisation of your tablet.
      • Updated applications
        Several built-in applications have been updated, such as the internet browser, the calendar and the photo gallery.
      • Support for a HTTP proxy for each wireless connection
        Android 3.1 adds the possibility to assign a proxy server for each wireless connection, allowing easier use of Android tablet in an enterprise network.

    • 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.

  • How can I connect to a mobile hotspot with my Android tablet?

    • Many smartphones can share their 3G mobile internet connection via a wireless network. This is called a portable hotspot and creates a so-called ad-hoc wireless network.

      Android does not support connecting to an ad-hoc wireless network. The network will be detected, but it is not possible to create a connection.

  • Copying files from USB storage and micro-SD card to the tablet

    • How can I copy files from my USB flash drive or micro-SD card to my Android tablet?

      To copy or move files from an USB drive, or micro-SD card, to the internal memory of the tablet and vice-versa, a so-called file manager is needed. As Android does not include it, you can use free file managers such as Astro File Manager, OI File Manager or Linda File Manager, available on the Android Market. Installing such an application will allow you to check the content of the storage devices directly.

    • About

      Welcome to Inside BlackBerry® Help Blog, Research In Motion’s BlackBerry smartphone support blog and the newest edition to the Inside BlackBerry blog family!

      You’ve probably seen us (or our work) around in spaces such as the BlackBerry Support Community Forums@BlackBerryHelp on Twitter, and the Official BlackBerry® Channel on YouTube™. We’ve loved being engaged with the community through these channels (and will continue to do so!) and hope we have helped many of you out along way.

      Through this support blog we feel we can add a little extra to the community by sharing knowledge and tips… before you even have to ask!

      What this blog is about

      We’ve assembled some of our best technical support experts to provide tips and tricks, go in depth on features and show you how it all works.

      But we know this blog isn’t just about us and our perspectives – it’s about YOU and what you need to know to get the most out of your BlackBerry smartphone. Be sure to join in the conversation and get connected with the great information being shared online!

      What this blog isn’t about

      We’re excited to continue to contribute to the conversation, but that said, this isn’t the place to discuss topics like unreleased products, financial and forward-looking statements, service outages or carrier matters. Besides, these are matters where our topic experts aren’t, well, the experts.

      Let us know what’s working and what’s not. See our Comments Policy, and you can also suggest a topicyou’d like to see discussed.
