You can use USB devices using an OTG cable that will let you plug in low powered USB devices such as keyboards,mice,gamepads etc. To use the cable though requires either rooting the device, which can invalidate the warranty, or purchasing a low cost app that will let you use the cable without rooting.
USB disk drives generally need more power than the Nexus can provide unless you have a powered drive or usb hub with it's own power.
USB Flash drives are fine though

Thank you for your question regarding the Google Nexus 7.

I can advise that this product has a Micro-USB socket, however we would advise you to check with Google regarding the available uses of this port as certain functionalities may not be supported.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

Further to Argos's answer above -- you need to be aware that that plugging the tablet into a TV that has a USB socket will not achieve anywhere near as much as would be possible if the tablet had an HDMI or other video out connector. It'll be similar to if you copied files off the tablet onto a USB memory stick and then plugged that into your TV.

No as some apps are specifically for old versions of Android. Some have never been tested on a Nexus and some need Flash, which is not supported on 4.1.
BUT there are Tregra optimised THD/HD apps which were written specifically for this type of tablet which wornt work on old phones.
The biggest problem os limiting what you get as there still is an amazing amount of software out there..

I don’t see why not. Most technology is backwards-compatible.
There may well be older devices (earlier android versions) that don’t support all apps, but if you’re getting the latest OS then there shouldn’t be any problems.

Android itself will support the standard file types such as MP3, MPG etc. (file types that have free decoders). As other post says, there are many apps on the Google Play store that can play most media types out there.

As it's an Android device, there are numerous media players you can download from the Google Play Store via a wireless internet connection. Your bases will be very well covered in this regard.

Question
Does this tablet have a card slot or not, one answer says it does not have one, but Argos are offering a card as part of the package when you buy it.
Is the card for the Nexus 7 or for some other item not included in the bundle purchase.
