I want to open local files that are on my sdcard in the Android browser. How can I accomplish this?
In order to view local files on the sdcard with the default Android browser just enter
So far I have verified that the browswer can open/render these files: xml, html files(htm), and image files
It cannot open pdfs.
According to this comment it works for Android 2.1 and above
Found a solution for the local file browser problem on my Xoom tablet
I tried opening a local file with Opera by typing file:///mnt/sdcard/Documents/blabla.html. Opera changed the adress in file://localhost/mnt/Documents... Using the localhost syntax on the android browser opened the local file.
