Hi, I'm TOTALLY new to this. I was going to buy an ipad, but it's pretty much a bigger iphone (which I own), and Android looks so much more interesting Anyways, I know I can accomplish this with a laptop, but I'm trying to avoid lugging that around, and I'm trying to find out how to do this (if it's possible) with my Android tablet WITHOUT a network connection. I'm going on a cruise and don't want to do this over wifi/network. The slider has a USB. I wanted to use a usb hub and connect 1) external hard drive 2) iphone 3) camera with SD card Goal: to use the tablet as a means of transferring files from the iphone or camera TO the external hard drive. The equivalent to transferring pics/videos in win explorer. IS THIS POSSIBLE? Going even more back to basics, how and is it possible for the Android tablet to recognize the iphone? I plugged it in and it wants to import into picasa.
