    Does anyone know if there is a way to connect an external hardrive to the iPad 3? Ive seen the stagnate wifi external which looks pretty good but wondering if it can be done with a standard external ?

    Also is there anyway to exchange files between an iPad and iphone via bluetooth? Thanks guys...bit of a newbie when it comes to the iPad but loving it :)

    You might want to take a look at this thread here: http://www.ipadforums.net/showthread.php?p=354089

    It talks about connecting a jail broken iPad2 to an external storage drive. They lost me early on in the conversation :))), but, if you're jailbroken, it might be something to read through.

    +1 to the Seagate Satellite wifi drive

    Love mine, 500 GB storage for your iPad. Works also with your iPhone and MBPro as well.

    Without jail breaking, the seagate satellite drives are the only real way to have that much space. Go download the AirDisk Pro app. It was free the other day and is now like 2$ on sale. It is pretty good and allows you to drag and drop from any computer on wifi or connect to another iOS device over Bluetooth to share files. Also allows export to other apps.

    Thanks guys , I've not jail broken my iPad and I'm inclined to go with the wifi external option as its mainly to watch movies on the road so I dunno if bluetoothing would really work. I've got about 20 gb space on my phone so would be good to be able to use that right enough :) thanks everyone
