    Do you sometimes wish your smart phone had regular USB ports so you can use a flashdrive or even a keyboard?

    Well, now with the MicroUSB OTG 3-Port Hub with Smartphone Stand, you can do that easily. The MicroUSB OTG 3-Port Hub allows you to connect 3 different USB devices to many On The Go (OTG) enabled Android devices. Yes, only Android. A nice change from how many times I have to report iOS devices only. If you add a mouse and keyboard to your compatible Android Tablet or phone, it could become a mini portable PC. It works with many micro-B smart phone devices, including the Galaxy S3 and S4. I tried it on my Galaxy S4, and added a keyboard and a flashdrive. But wait, there’s more! In addition to adding USB devices like Flash Drive / USB Card Reader / Mouse, etc., the MicroUSB OTG device acts a stand! Brando calls it Smart Stand Design. Position your phone in vertical, horizontal or even lying viewing positions. It a perfect movie-watching and working stand. The entire device is very small, and very inexpensive. There are no instructions with the device, just what's printed on the box. It says: Samsung Galaxy R, Galaxy S, Galaxy SII, Galaxy SIII, Galaxy Note, Galaxy Xcover, Galaxy Celox, Sony Xperia arc S, Xperia P, Nokia N8 and Nokia oro. It's just $10 at the company website:
