    I'd say buy a tablet with removable sdcard, and can do hdmi or mhl video output to a tv.

    So I wouldn't get the nexus 7.

    If you're getting pushed onto Verizon's new "Share everything" plan, then anything will work. If you're looking specifically to tether via USB I think the playbook will and I'm not 100% certain but the upcoming windows tab will as well. Other than that I can't think of any off the shelf Android tabs that will USB tether

    Well, I have decided on a Acer Iconia A200 10.1. It has USB ports, micro SD slot etc and fairly good review, along with a reasonable good price.

    Now a Google question. Do I put it on my same google account and does google manage two devices?

    You can put the same account on multiple devices. Though coming from someone with 8 Android devices on one account, it can get a bit unwieldy

    I am getting the tablet set up. Got Kindle books and music loaded. Have been on each of my two WiFi access points, on and off Bluetooth tether to the stock GB Rezound a couple times. Just have to get the connection routine down. This Acer Iconia A200 has both a micro USB and a full size USB that allows thumb drives etc. Only down item is the charger port. It uses a wallwart and round 12v 1.5 amp input. Will have to check on a car charger.

    Gmail is cool. If I view on one device. The other one updates as viewed.

    So the Acer blutooth tethers, but not USB. Has anyone found a tablet that works with USB tether?

    Well, I am hoping that ICS will open up the Rezound to doing more. It is not an Acer issue, it is on the Rezound end. Rooting would fix that with GB, and just maybe ICS will fix it without rooting. USB tethering will cause the Rezound to want to charge from the Tablet, so I am not as sold on that now. I really like the fact that the Iconia A200 has two USB ports, with one being a full size one that memory sticks can be plugged into for sneaker netting. Chris

    Still playing with the Tab. BT tethering is working fine. Put a Samsung 16g class 6 micro SD card in it and moved 1.5g of music to it.

    If they ever fix FoxFi to work on the Rezound then your non-rooted troubles are over.

    Or the Rezound is fixed to work with FoxFi! As I said FoxFi on the Rezound BT's to PDANET on the Tab fine. Makes me want to try my Rockfisk BT USB adapter and PDANET on my laptop again, to tether to the phone.

    All had been working well and then! Gmail has stopped sync'ing and Play Store will not up date while tethered. Dolphin / internet works fine.

    I am thinking about the Asus tf300

    it has sd card, micro hdmi, unlockable bootloader, ICS, a nice optional keyboard docking station.

    However, I don't think it can do anything I can't do on my rezound.
