Official Samsung Micro USB to USB Converter

USB On-The-Go (USB OTG) is hardly new, but its uptake is reasonably small so mobile devices which can take advantage of USB peripherals such as memory sticks, hard drives and even MIDI Keyboards are few and far between.

Apple hit the nail on the head with the Camera Connection Kit, which provided a USB adaptor that lets the iPad take advantage of MIDI keyboards to great effect.

It should come as no surprised that Samsung who, dare I say, seem to have an accessory to counter everything that Apple does, now have an Samsung Galaxy S2 Micro USB to USB Converter, allowing you to connect a plethora of peripherals to your Samsung Galaxy S2.

If hooking up USB Mass Storage to your Samsung Galaxy S2, and more besides, is your cup of tea then you can head over to MobileFun and pick up the Samsung Galaxy S2 Micro USB to USB Converter for just £14.99. It’s a little dearer than your average OTG adaptor, but is all branded up and pretty much guaranteed to be compatible with your S2.
