    Default Plugging Nexus 7 into Nexus 7 with OTG?

    A random thought just came to me, and I am wondering what would happen.

    I have a Nexus 7 with a cracked screen and broken digitizer assembly. A new one is on the way.

    If I plugged the broken Nexus 7 into the new one with an OTG cable, would it work as a 32GB storage drive? I can't think of any practical reasons for this do to the size and availability of much smaller storage devices, but I am just curious.

    Here is a quick diagram in case you don't understand:


    Thanks,

    Bow chicka wow wow...! I see some N7 mating rituals in your future! No, but seriously I am also interested in all things OTG so let's make this thread happen! I think it would come down to whether you can get a driver to do this or not. It is the same thing holding back adding 4g or 3g dongles this way, there usually isn't much in the way of drivers.

    xD

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking. Since the device is much more complicated than an average storage drive I could see it not being recognized or something.

    I would guess not because the nexus 7 mounts as mtp, not usb mass storage but that's just a guess.

    best way to find out is plug them in....

    I am always amazed at how often I can plug something in to the OTG adapter and have it work but it always surprises me with what kind of device it decides it is connecting...

    The iPOD mini connected as a camera -- go figure

    Interesting. My new one still hasn't came, but I'll find out when it comes.
