    The other thread is too general and it is getting long so I am making this new thread. Also my order of the 64 gb has just been shipped and I am scheduled to recceive it on 11/12/2013.

    Maybe this unit will have the latest driver and bios to improve it from the 32 gb version.

    My 64gb shipped today from Amazon with 2 shipping it scheduled to be here on Saturday - earlier than the 11/12 initial estimate. Dell also shipped my pen today with next day shipping to here tomorrow.

    Anyone have a nice case with a flip cover that doubles as a stand like those iPad mini cases?

    I was so excited that I got mine in today. Then to my utter disappointment I started having problems with it. I have a thread about the stylus issue I am having. It is also doing weird things when typing. I like the size of the tablet and the speed. It is much faster than my latitude 10. But issues make the stylus completely unusable and the touchscreen is just flaking out enough to make me not enjoy by tablet. I am hoping to get it exchanged quickely.

    I just got my 64 GB version today, earlier than expected. So far it is a cool tablet. However, I am not sure how to transfer files from my desktop computer to my my Dell Venue Pro 8 tablet using the micro usb cable. When I plug the tablet to my desktop computer via the micro usb cable, I do not see a way to transfer files from my desktop to the tablet. I am so used to Android in easily transfering files from desktop computer to android tablet, but I am not sure how to do it with Windows 8.1 tablet. Does anyone know how?

    What type and size are these files? Would a Dropbox or sky drive solution work for you? Might actually be easier than trying to deal with a cable.

    You have to keep in mind that the V8P is basically just another full fledged Windows PC. And you can't just plug in a USB cable between two Windows PC's and transfer files. This is where flash drives come in. The easiest way is to get an USB-OTG "on-the-go" cable which will allow you to plug in a flash drive into the V8P and transfer file back & forth to it.

    Another easy way is to utilize a home wifi network. Share the drive with the data on the desktop and it becomes your own personal cloud storage. Want updated copies on both computers? Use FreeFileSync to sync over wifi.

    There is also the mSDXC that you can pop in a reader and use as a flash drive to copy or sync the files and then pop it back in the V8P. Lots of ways to move files about.

    I have the 64Gb version and put a 64Gb micro in. Easiest method would be a shared folder. If it is a lot of data then otg with a flash drive would probably be faster.

    I believe in the main thread someone mentioned about 49 or 50 out of the box.

    My VP8 arrives next week I can tell you exactly then.
