This blog is an attempt to provide informative and interactive environment for mobile phones discussion. I'll try to opt for only those which are in the reach of mediocre men and which provide a good "Price+Performance" proposition. Neither I'll post here about very hifi mobiles, nor I'll cover each and every phone. I believe in quality and not in quantity. Along with your co-operation, I'll try to provide a neat,clean and fair platform for mobile phones discussions. THANKS!

How to connect a Keyboard and Mouse to your Android phone/phablet/tablet
Now onwards, writing long emails or chatting with your friends from your
Android tablet/phablet/phone could be a cakewalk. To chat for long hours on end, one
just misses a keyboard. For serious Web browsing, a mouse could also
have worked better. Now, you could also connect a keyboard or even a
mouse or even both together and turn your Android tablet into a
full-fledged net book.
There are 2 ways to make this happen. You would just need
the following things to make this work. While, for the Method1 would cater
if you plan to use a USB Keyboard and Mouse, the Method2 caters to those
who plan to use their PS/2 keyboard and mice.
The USB OTG cable would be needed in either method you try to connect. Get the Micro USB cable first. Once, you have got your USB OTG cable you need to get a USB Hub or a USB
PS/2 converter. While you could choose USB PS/2 converters from
anywhere, be aware that all USB hubs won’t work, as they do not support
multiple devices at one point of time. To use your keyboard and mouse
together, you need a USB Hub that supports multiple devices at one point
of time. Either Method1 or Method2, you are ready to go.
Method1 (using USB Keyboard and Mouse)
1.Connect USB OTG cable to your phone/tablet
2.Connect USB Hub to your USB OTG cable end
3.Plug in your Keyboard and Mouse
Method2 (using PS/2 Keyboard and Mouse)
1.Connect USB OTG cable to your tablet/phone
2.Connect USB to PS/2 converter to your USB OTG Cable end
