Few questions about a500.
Hi all, first off I'm not new to andriod. I have a HTC Desire HD which I love. I just recently bought an Acer A500 over others because of the USB ports.
So far I love it. I just have a few questions. I'm just updated to 3.2. I have done a lot of reading on storage, seems you can't move your apps to the external SD card. I'm sure others find this a bit annoying but since I have the 16gb version its no big deal really.
So my big questions are...What is the point of the SD card? I bought a 16gb one but so far I find it useless. Can it be used to store/play my videos and music etc? I havn't tried putting any documents etc on it but can I store my stuff on it and use File Manager HD or Astro to access them?
Also I read that update 3.2.1 is out and trying to check for updates keeps telling me that my network coverage is poor and move to a location with better coverage. I find this odd considering that my wifi modem is on top of the desk where I'm using it.
Other than that seems to be a great tablet, I used the Asus Transformer and found it basically the same interface ofcourse but the Acer has way better sound and options.
Any advice you can give a newbie to tabs would be great! I've yet to try external HDD, I'm in the middle of moving and they are packed away.
