    I have been reading all this about the USB mass storage issue, and my question is, will I be able to use this phone to stream internet radio on my car (2012 range rover sport). It has a USB cable and also has bluetooth. I don't need to play music stored on my phone, what I really want to do is stream internet radio in the car. My partner does this on his BMW with his Iphone.

    Yes, this has no bearing on stuff like this. You can use an auxiliary cord, a USB stick, bluetooth, anything. The only thing you cannot do is mount a mass storage device on your phone and transfer files back and forth from what I understand.

    It should do this fine over bluetooth.

    With mass storage, yes I believe it will work like any other Android phone with an SD card on a Mac.

    Thanks for the response. The OS on my Mac is not currently compatible with Android's file transfer software so this is welcome news!

    I think you will still need Android File Transfer for this to be of use. What version of OS X are you running currently?

    It's pretty awesome Google is going to enable this option. I wonder if they planned it all along or if they're listening to the customers? Either way, good move!

    I think they heard all the noise made over it and figured it would be easy enough to implement. Way to go Google!

    I'm on 10.4. My Macbook is limping along and I'll probably be replacing it in a few months. Don't feel like updating the OS and everything that goes with that before getting a new machine.
