samsung galaxy tab or archos or advent

I had finally decided to invest in the samsung galaxy tab as I really like the size and I want a device I can read books and browse the internet on. Then I read a review and discover it does not have a USB port which I thought it had. It was the lack of the usb port that put me off the IPAD. How can I transfer across all my books without a usb port and without doing individually through internet?

I have seen the advent vega advertised and this has a usb port but havent read much about it and also the archos 70.

Please advise

Thanks

I bought the Samsung Galaxy Tab on the day it became available on T-Mobile (11/10) and I am VERY happy with it. (And I know others who love their iPads, etc., as well). Choice IS a good thing!

BUT, I also own a Sony PRS-505 dedicated e-book reader that I am also VERY happy with (1200 items on it, mostly from MR Thank you!), and I also own a Sony Video Walkman for audio books that I also am VERY happy with.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab (SGT) has wireless as well as mobile broadband (the latter for a fee of course) but you can download a lot with the Android ebook readers that access several Internet ebook libraries thru the OPDS Internet Library format.

Also, the SGT has a microSD slot (up to 32 GB), and you can buy a USB type holder for it to plug it into, fill it up on another computer, then put it back into the SGT (I have a 16 GB, since the 32 GBs are not priced competitively yet.

So. What are your needs, your budget, etc.? The SGT is a great device, but there are lots of choices out there!

I usually use Dropbox to transfer files from and on my iPad wirelessly – I don’t see why this shouldn’t be possible with the Galaxy Tab, too.

What reader formats with the Galaxy handle?
I played with one a couple of days ago and loved it but it only had the Kindle app and no books dl'd so I could not use the reader.

I have a Sony 300 reader and would love to use the Galaxy for the books I have in my Sony library but they are in epub format and/or Sony drm so I don't think that is an option.

Given advice such as this, the original poster should probably clarify what country they are in as obviously the nook is limited to north america (usa only?)

I have just put epub books on it and they read fine. Not sure what other formats you can use but as I have the sony 505 most of my books are in epub anyway. I am using dropbox to put the books on it and that works fine. I am really happy with it so far.
