I currently own an iPhone (hiss!) and use Ubuntu on my PC - not the best combination as I still rely on an installation of Windows to use iTunes. Otherwise I cannot transfer music/ videos/ apps etc. Now I'm assuming that Android doesn't have these stupid restrictions that Apple insist upon but I just want to be sure. So, I just want to be able to transfer music, photos, videos, apps etc between both computers (PC and tablet) - is this easily enough done with Ubuntu? Ideally I just want an external hard drive style arrangement where I just drop files into the device from my PC. I hate having to install additional software (e.g. iTunes)
Anyway hopefully my assumptions are correct but please let me know if there are any known issues. I'm hoping it doesn't involve any techy hacks and workarounds. Much appreciated.
PS I didn't actually choose to buy an iPhone as such but I had a friend selling one and it avoided taking out a phone contract. Really any smart phone would have done, but now I am buying I think I'd rather avoid Apple at all cost - just want to put that out there :)
