USB memory stick

With the proper adapter can I use a thumb drive with the Playbook for external storage?

Re: USB memory stick

No you cannot as the playbook does not have the software to support it.

Re: USB memory stick

My Playbook doesn't have a USB port, ergo, I cannot use any USB device on my Playbook!

Re: USB memory stick

To be fair, the playbook does have a USB port - I.e the micro usb port most profitable let use to charge the playbook and connect it to their computer. Currently it does not have the software to allow you to connect another usb device to the playbook such as a usb key etc.

You didnt ask why in your original post four weeks ago, you just asked if it was possible. You got full answers to the specific question plus extra advice.  Please don't shoot the messenger for bad news.
