    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.

    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."

    Will the Micro USB Male B to USB Female A work with any android device or just Samsung Galaxy S II? Does USB On The Go need to be installed on the device?
