What is this? It’s my new mobile photo backup solution. What we have here is a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 7″ tablet, along with a Seagate 500GB portable hard disk and a powered USB hub. With this setup, plus the SD card reader that came with the USB adaptor, I can transfer photos from my camera’s SD card to the backup drive without lugging around a bulky, expensive laptop
The hub is there to provide power for the drive, since the Tab cannot supply enough on its own. As a bonus it allows me to connect both the camera and the drive at the same time and transfer files directly from one to the other.
Hat tip to my good friends Sara and Chris Kennedy for pointing me to this setup!
