Moving to the dark side... Apple to Android

#1
Ok, i'm taking the plunge and moving from Apple. When I get back from my trip in July i'll be shifting to Windows 8 phone and laptop but before I go I am ridding myself of iPhone 4S + contract and my Macbook Pro. I'm condensing to a 7" tablet which I can use in WiFi areas.


Now the choice is Kindle Fire HD, or Nexus 7. I'm thinking Nexus 7, but my question to the android aficionados on here is this - if I have a 1TB hard drive full of stuff that I want to watch on the tablet, is there any way to connect the full size USB direct to either tablet or will I have to keep the laptop to move things backwards and forwards onto and off the tablet?

Any views on which tablet - of those two I don't want any other suggestions, and any info on the Hard Drive "issue"

My Tb HDD is too big and bulky (and now broken) to cart around and my small 500Gb Hdd doesn't have a separate power supply so it's not something I had the opportunity to try.

I've just made the move from iPhone back to Android (Samsung Galaxy S2) and whilst I had no major problems with the iPhone I'm glad I did.

if you use a y lead with two large usb plugs then you can stick one end into a usb 5v pains power supply then the other in the device. you would probably need a usb extension lead for the power supply end though as 6 inch wouldn't be enough, as the actress said to the bishop.
