I want to run XBMC on an ARM Tablet, using bluetooth keyboard and an external 4TB hard drive to substitute a typical HTPC.

. P.S.: HTPC doesn't exist as a tag... can someone who is not new here create it?

You can attach an external HDD to the (officially supported) nexus 7 and 10 and play videos. XBMC is not yet available for Ubuntu Touch (as far as I know). There is an XBMC for Android though.

Thanks for the answer and info! <br/> <br/> I don't want to run Ubuntu touch actually, I want to run regular Ubuntu with XBMC. <br/> The Android version of XBMC is just a satellite to an XBMC server on some other machine... <br/> wow, its swallowing all my line breaks... – user167642 Jun 16 '13 at 17:37
