    Hi All

    I am just about to order a Galaxy note 10.1 and wanted to check a few things out. In one of the reviews on Amazon the author stated that he could not use is external USB hardrive via the USB adapter cable. Is this correct ? Does this mean there is no `USB Host` facility or is this just confined to powered hard drives? will\does a USB stick still work?

    Thanks In Advance

    Of course there is USB Host function. I used an external battery pack and connected my 750GB HDD without any issues with a dual USB cable; one ofr power and one for data.

    I am a BIG fan of Amazon.com they are great to buy from. I trust the reviews people post and the advice they give. I just received my Galaxy 10.1 Notes and am charging it up now.:)
