USB On-The-Go for Android Devices!



Rejoice Android users! Now, you can plug in almost any USB accessories in your Android devices. Introducing the USB On-The-GO(USB OTG), an adapter that allows you to do such marvels. The adapter works with several Android devices such as:

  • Samsung Galaxy S II (S2)
  • Samsung Galaxy S III (S3)
  • Galaxy Nexus*
  • Galaxy Nexus 7*
  • Droid RAZR
  • Samsung Galaxy Tab

It is still hard to determine which other Android devices supports this USB feature, especially ones with hardware manufacturers (OEM) specifications and boundaries. The USB OTG works with most of the Samsung Android devices easily. As a reminder, the USB host mode for this works only with Android 3.1 and above. However there were some users reporting it working on Android 2.3 too. You might want to do some research on the Android version just to be safe.

Assuming this works with all USB devices, the USB OTG can be a really good tool when you really need to send something in the pendrive when a computer is out of sight. While you won’t see me doing what’s in the pic up there, having Sony PlayStation 3  joystick to play your games is still pretty cool.
