    The Samsung Galaxy S II USB OTG (USB On The Go) means that you can connect many USB Flash Memory Drives, cameras, or keyboards without rooting!

    The cable you need is technically called a "Micro USB Male B to USB Female A" but sellers rarely seem to know this.

    USB Host Cable

    Connected to a Flash Drive _ _ _ Connected to a USB Mouse

    The Samsung Epic 4G Touch Tips & Tricks says:
    USB Host
    Attaching USB Devices to the Epic 4G Touch: With the optional USB adapter, you can connect devices such as keyboards, mice and thumb drives to the Epic 4G Touch. High-powered devices and charging another device from the Epic 4G Touch’s port are not supported.

    Slashgear: "you can plug USB devices such as memory sticks into the Galaxy S II, too, thanks to USB On The Go support."
    Business Insider: "USB OTG adapter for use with external USB devices such as USB flash drives."

    eBay search for "USB Host Samsung Galaxy" Cellphone Cables-nearest listed first.
    • Ancroid Central article: USB host mode enabled on the Motorola XOOM.
    • Here are USB OTG Host cables sold in the US on eBay.
    • Article by Chris Parsons shows USB host mode enabled on the Motorola XOOM and that is the cable he used on his rooted Xoom.

    I was not even aware of this capability. It's legit. No need to be rooted. It only supports FAT32 file systems though..regardless the capability is there. Pretty nifty.
