Can anyone recommend a good tablet with an SD card?

I have friends who are into photography and video editing who like the idea of carrying an iPad for viewing their photos and video when they’re out on a shoot. But the iPad’s lack of an memory card slot is a concern: it’s kind of a necessity if you’re dealing with a lot of content. Is there any Android pad with a high-quality display and a lower cost that would work for them?




I will suggest you Sony Xperia Z2 Tablet. Want to know more about Go with this link : http://www.knowyourmobile.com/tablets/sony-xperia-z2-tablet/22113/sony-x...




Hello Friends,

The Internet is hard at work debating the merits of the Nexus 7 tablet, and the biggest arguments are about the lack of expandable storage, or an SD card, as you likely know it. It seems like everyone and their brother has a theory about why the hottest tablet to hit Android so far will be shipping without one. The most popular reason revolves around some conspiracy that Google is to forcing you to use its cloud services. While I'm sure Google would love nothing more than users depending on Google Drive or Google Music  and there's certainly a big push for it that's not the reason devices have been trending away from expandable storage.

Thanks and Regards,

Hi dbrown,

Tom's did a roundup of the best Android 3.1 tablets that you might find helpful:


"If you’re interested in buying a tablet, there are four different paths to take. You can buy an iPad from Apple, a PlayBook from RIM, a TouchPad from HP (assuming you can find one), or an Android tablet. The first three choices are relatively straightforward, as each OS (iOS, QNX, and webOS) is represented by one hardware choice. As for Android, well, saying you have a choice in hardware is an understatement. If I had a nickel for every Android tablet currently on the market…I’d probably have enough money to buy a game or two from the Android Market.

The Android tablet manufacturing space can be split in two categories. First, you have vendors who make Android-based smartphones (Samsung, LG, HTC), so making the jump to Android tablets is a logical next step. Next, you have PC makers (Lenovo, Asus, Acer, Toshiba), who have little to no presence in the North American smartphone marketplace, but you probably own/have owned one of their desktops or laptops. Both types of companies know you want a “secondary” computer, and they want you to drop $400 or more on their Honeycomb (Android 3.X) offerings.

Let’s pretend that you already said no to an iPad or PlayBook, and you’ve decided to buy an Android tablet. Why should you buy a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 over a Toshiba Thrive? Or why should you scorn both of those options and buy a Lenovo IdeaPad K1? We’re going to look at five different Android tablets from Acer, Asus, Lenovo, Samsung and Toshiba, examine their design, hardware and software, and attempt to figure out which is the most deserving of your hard-earned money."

Although it hasn't been for sale very long, the Acer Iconia tablet looks promising. There are some good reviews on Amazon. Only $450 or so, making it cheaper than an iPad 2, but with a memory card slot and USB connectivity (which may still require an Android update to clear some bugs).
