    I use PC Chrome. I maintain all my contacts on PC Chrome and then sync account between phone(s) and PC.

    You can also use something like Smart Switch. It transfers everything wirelessly.

    Are all of those contacts associated with your Google account or with the Phone Account? If they're associated with your Google account, they will sync automatically once you log in with your tablet. This is why I always recommend against entering contacts into the Phone Account--it's not as easy to move them to a new device.

    If they're not Google account contacts, export them as a csv file. Then go to https://www.google.com/contacts/#contacts click More and Import the csv file you created. Then they'll all be Google account contacts. (You can also create vcf files when you export, but you have to import them one at a time, and if you have more than a few contacts, that's a lot of work.)

    I always get confused a little about CSV vs VCF files. I think I've been able to export contacts as a "multiple VCF" file, and import them as such, which fortunately makes it less of a hassle. But I can't recall the exact details at this moment.
