    Upgrade your Playbook to OS and it can detect USB flash drives, keyboards and mice automatically.

    So I found 2 wireless external hard drives - Seagate Satellite and the Kingston WiDrive. Looks like these will be good to store a ton of music, videos, and movies on and the PB will hopefully be able to connect to them.
