Too little space on ipad
So I have a 16gb iPad2, and the problem is that I'm starting to realize I shouldve gotten at least a 32 gb, since my music alone takes up 5-8 gb.
(But with the ipad3 coming next year, there's no way Im upgrading right now...)
So I've been thinking if I could maybe put the movies and music I CAN'T fit on the iPad on a portable harddisk or USB drive of some sort, so I could bring it all along when I go on a trip, and then upload it to the iPad as needed. (I also have a 7 inch Android tablet and high end Android phones, so is there any way I could use these as a harddrive?)
Is this possible in any way without jailbreaking it? Like for example through an app and WLAN or the camera connector?

I have the 32gb, and I watch what I dl for apps because some of them are large, and I still see it creeping up to the limit at times.
But, I just saw an ad for a portable wireless 500gb hard drive that I'm gonna go pick up at office.... It's a little spendy, but you can connect all wireless devices to it, and basically take your whole lot of movies, pics and songs with you, and share them if you want!! That may be an idea for you!

Spotify isn't available where I live. And even if it was, there are plenty of situations where I don't have internet access but, might want to listen to some music.
And the music is really the smallest problem, there's also plenty of video files I might want to watch, and apps/games as tonos mentioned. (I have a game that's almost ONE GB. And that's just one of many I like, lol)
Ah wireless hard drive sounds like a solution. Could you post a link? And how do you power it?
It'd be perfect if I could hook a small portable HD or memory stick up to it, but could I do that through the camera adapter? Or could I use a 32gb SD card connected to the camera adapter?

I have a iPad one and have the same issue but I didn't know any better at the time and thought it would be fine .. Found out fast that movies ... Games and apps fill it up fast so when I upgrade to iPad 3 I'll def get a 64 or higher if they make it

Well, getting a larger iPad would be kind of a waste of money, with the iPad 3 probably coming. Ext spring...
BUT I did figure out another solution.... Apparently the camera connector can be used for extended storage, and the iPad doesn't even need to have a jailbreak. (all though it helps... With a jail broken iPad you can use the USB connector to connect to a hard drive)
You just put in a regular SD card, and can use that to store movies or even music. I figure I'll start out with a 16gb card, and can always get another if I run out of space. Hehe, with two 32gb card that would top even the 64gb ipad2, and all for thirty bucks or so pr. card!
