I have a Samsung Galaxy Tab. To my dissapointment it is unable to be mounted to Linux. I found a few website with instructions on how to mount it be so far they haven't worked.

So I was considering getting a new Samsung mp3 player but of course I'll have the same problem I'M having with my Tab. And as I understand it Android is Linux or Unix bases, how can this be?

So my real question is what are the best mp3 players or smart phones on the market that work well with Linux and Nautilus?
