Just as a matter of interest .. do any of these allow media streaming, ie. the ability to play media across the network without having to copy the file to the tablet/phone first ?

yes Mark they can stream media,

the most popular air app is "air droid" which runs on most android devices, and is compatible with linux if you want to download to your pc as opposed to just using your url

a good instruction video


hope that sheds some light

All the best for the coming year
