    Hey all, just received my Nexus 7 for Christmas and I am loving it. Only problem is hard drive is too small I guess santa wasn't feeling the extra 16 gig for me this year which would have solved quite a few problems. At any rate, I am researching possible solutions. I have ordered an OTG cable so I can share my flash drive. I have investigated wireless drives which are double beneficial since I can use them in my (out of space as well) Iphone. I don't like the fact that you need wifi to access it though. Then I got to thinking- is there a way to pair (BT) with my iphone to steam music? It will act like a portable hard drive, it's always with me, and I really only need the music/pictures from it.

    I have tried to pair the two with no luck. Before I waste more time trying, is this even possible? I have jail broken my iphone for hotspot access to the nexus, and that works fine (through the wifi)...but pairing seems a bit more difficult to me. Any suggestions? The main problem seems to be on the iphone side, saying that the nexus 7 isnt compatible.

    Appreciate any help and look forward to toying with this thing!

    If you're considering streaming music, why not just use Google Music to stream via the Nexus 7?

    IPhones never really worked well with other devices with blue tooth. I would say no, you can't par them two. Using it as a media server is possible but you have to be on the same wi fi.
