    Hey Abhishek.. Nice post! I ended up downloading RealPlayer for my Android and have been very satisfied. It has been perfect for my pics, photos and music and very easy to use (which was very important)! Thanks for all the info., it helped make my decision way easier. This was also a useful resource if anyone else is interested
