    Hello there my name is George and I am pretty new to android, I just got my first phone an xperia ray. I do not have a computer at the moment and I take a lot of photos,videos etc on my phone so I am constantly running out of space and having to find a computer to transfer files to my external hardrive for storage.
    I had a look online just to see if there is a way of connecting my phone directly to my USB hardrive or other storage device with some kind of adapter etc but I am even more confused than when I started. Most sites are telling me you can not as phones do not have USB host capabilities or something but then there are some sites saying that phones with 3.1 or higher can act as a USB host or whatever it is.
    Can anyone shed any light on this? I am not very technical and im reluctant to fork out money for a laptop just for storage when my android does everything I need :) . Thanks, George.
