Hi,

I was just about to buy "USB A 2.0 female to Micro USB B male Connector Adapter". I'm wondering what kind of things can I plug into my phone using this adapter and how will it behave.

Did any of you try using a mouse on the Galaxy Nexus? What's that like? What about an external monitor. Is that even possible?

Thanks.

I've tried and it doesn't work with a simple micro-male to a-female adapter. It's possible you need the micro-id pin grounded through a resistor, or something else.

What cable do we need to make it work, anything labelled 'OTG USB adapter' that looks like the one in Paul's pic?
