    This may not be a complete tablet question per se and more of a general technological compatibility issue but I figured since Im in the market for a tablet this should be ok

    I am looking into buying the Galaxy Tab 2, it has expandable storage up to 32gb which is key. The thing is I have a 64gb micro sd card, will the device be able to read the data even though the maximum space is exceeded by the sd card?

    I would hope then to just only 32gb of that 64 will only be used if not I kind of wasted money with the 64 gb sd cad :/

    Welcome to the forum

    The 64GB card should work fine if it's a quality card.

    I ave a Prime and you couldn't pay me to let it go. I have used 128GB cards in it. I think some of the issues with card size are "safe" specs and the version of Android to some extent.

    very nice really appreciate it. Yeah i may just go for the prime screen and processing power look phenomenal. one thing i heard was lack of dual band wifi only 2.4ghz

    i actually may be go with the infinity seems like its the same price and has a better screen

    If I had to buy an Android tablet, knowing what I know and didn't have the Prime I would go for the Infinity. It does just about everything you would need and has that dock as an option to boot.
