    Default Samsung Tablet

    Hi All.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 Tablet, Model GT N8010 which has an SD 16 GB Drive. Is this easily replaeable with a bigger one. I read somewhere tht the SD is soldered in place, is that so? PJ

    When I was younger I heard but didn't listen.
    Now I am older, I listen but cannot hear.

    If it is not broke, don't make it broker by trying to make it better. (This applies specifically to PJ)

    Tablets don't have a standard removable style Hard Drive , they have chips soldered to the motherboard. Not really an option to replace.

    Having enough problems with SWMBO Tablet, shes got a 256GB Micro SD card almost empty, and wants to install ANOTHER crap game, moving some rubbish to the SD drive to make room.

    Windows will not run on those sorts of tablets.

    Nope , not free .
    There WAS a free upgrade from W8 to Win8.1 , but only if you owned Win8 .

    As above , you cant install Windows on a Samsung Android Tablet. It has a CPU thats not compatible for a start

    With tablets, you pretty much have to accept them for what they are .
    Ive a Samsung 7" Tablet from the same era, I've started to get the issue where some Android apps wont install as its too old (Android version too old)

    Its possible using change my software 8 but you'll probably start asking questions that very few people could help you with if you do go that path.

    does that actually work, anyone tried
    I saw alot of claims its just a scam.

    You'd need a CPU compatible with Win, else instruction set would be seen as nonsense ?
    Windows Embedded,CE maybee ?

    MS are still working on it. W10 will be able to run on ARM processors, ( which most tablets use) bit like the Windows 10 S, its still under development. Windows RT was an example - didn't go to popular.

    Bit more on it -- http://www.techradar.com/news/a-clos...windows-10-iot

    Looking on google, the change my software is rubbish and fake. To get the software you have to fill out surveys ( yeah right) and the technical side it wouldn't work anyway.
