Lego, is there any way you can put a vid or something on a thumb drive or something and try to play it on your Xoom for me? My google-fu is not strong today, and I am looking for a concrete/trustworthy answer on whether it would work.

I can try tomorrow to see if the xoom can play media off a thumb drive. Gut instinct tells me no.

Also go to play with the gslate some and it's gimmicky 3d, ehhh so far. Hoping we will get the new Tab in since it is supposed to be a viable iPad competitor and looks it.

It won't work without modification. It doesn't have host support stock. From what I have seen, it can work on the xoom. I'm selling my ipad to my buddy, and picking up my Acer Iconia either tomorrow or Tuesday. About 45 minutes(or less) in my hands and I should have it ready to host my 500 gb WD passport. At the very least I'll load up my 8gb thumb drive and run that for a bit.

No problem. I spent a good portion of today researching. USB host is one of the big selling points for me so I did a lot of reading.

I believe you can do it if you flash the tiamet kernel. But you'd need to root first. You also need the media cable I think. I don't have the cable, so I have no mini USB cables with a female USB on the other end to plug a drive into to test. Sorry

Ill try to look this up tonight on xda developers and see what they are doing. I'm in training the next few weeks. So ill have to do it during the free time I get at the end of the day. Will let you know as soon as I do

this is true however i do remember reading that 3.1 is supposed to have host support. The toshiba thrive tablet (launches in a month preorder opened today) has full size USB host slots and should be able to do it without any modification.
