You may remember back at Google IO when the announcement of Android 3.1 was made, and its ability to add USB hosting, which allows USB-enabled controllers or devices to run off any Honeycomb Tablet. There were many videos made with people using it on the Motorola XOOM because it had a micro-USB input, whereas the Galaxy Tab 10.1 (and 101.v) only has a 30-pin adapter. Now we can fret no more, as Samsung have now released an adapter that goes from 30-pin to USB, to allow USB devices to plug in to the Galaxy Tab 10.1. Handy. Oh yeah, it’s only $20USD from the Samsung Online Store, but they won’t ship to Australia yet.
