This might sound like a stupid question, but can it play files from SD? Like movies and music? Also would you Thrive owners recommend getting 16gb size over the 8 gb due to it not being able to use apps from SD? That is the way it works with tablet apps right? That they don't work from the SD card? Can you think of any negatives with regard to this tablet? Hubby is wanting a ten incher now and that has increased our budget on one so it looks like the Thrive is the way to go because of the user replaceable battery and full sized HDMI & USB ports. One other thing, if you don't want to root t his tablet, it can still do the android market right? Was there a recent upgrade on the honeycomb to 3.2 or is it still using 3.1? Thanks for the info in advance, I really appreciate the help.
