    I recently bought the Asus transformer pad tf 700. It is an amazing tablet i bought it with the keyboard so i have access to a usb slot and sd card holder. I was hoping to put all of my music onto a 128 gb sd card so then id have no use for my laptop. Once i have all my music on my tablet i was hoping to buy a zune, prefered the 120 gb mp3 player version. But would i be able to upload and manage my music, videos and what not on the zune through my Asus tablet?
    Please help

    I'm not sure how the Zune gets read. The tablet might read it as external storage, which case it might work. If it doesn't, then probably not.

    No, The Zune, much like the iPod with iTunes, can only be managed through the Zune Software on a PC. Also worth noting the Zune is at end of life (Microsoft has killed it) so no support will be offered on it. How may songs do you have? You may be better off getting everything into Google Music (Up to 25,000 songs) and having then using your phone as your MP3 player (depending on your phone). If you are like me and have over 40,000 songs you can also sign up for Amazon Cloud Player for 24.99 per year and have up to 250,000 songs uploaded to the cloud plus unlimited purchases. Both Google Music and Amazon MP3 have Android apps available for your tablet and phone if you have an Android. I have a Zune HD that I love but Microsoft ruined it and I have moved to my phone handling all my music via bluetooth to my Car and Home Stereo system.

    I have about 90 GB of music.
    I was hoping to get the samsung galaxy mp3 player with a 64 gb micro sd card. Would you say this is a good product.
    Also does amazon cloud and google music need the internet to play the music.
    With my phone itshouldnt be a issue because i have 3g but i am concerned of it freezing up.
    Thankyou for your helpful feedback!

    I am not sure about the Samsung Galaxy player. Depending on your area, Carrier, and coverage 3g should be perfectly fine to stream music but with both you can also save music to your internal storage, such as playlists.

    Yes and no. By default it needs Internet, but you can pin songs to cache for offline play. This will be stored on internal memory so you're limited to the size of your phone. You probably won't be able to pin everything, but quite a few. 90gb might take a while to upload.
