One can use microSD cards for storing one's files so expansion isn't a problem. It can take up to 1 TB micro SD card. It comes with apps one can use to not just listen to one's music, eBooks, and Audible books but to purchase and download them to the tablet. There are many other accessible apps available from the Amazon store which allow one to use it for many purposes such as listening to radio, podscasts, all sorts of entertainment such as NetFlix, and such. One can even get basic Alexa functionality in order to speak one's commands instead of using the touch screen for everything. We can also set it up so you can use the Google Play Store for an even larger choice of apps. One can use either a Bluetooth keyboard or connect a USB keyboard with the use of an OTG cable, so typing on it isn't a problem.
