Samsung Unveils Galaxy Tab 10.1 USB Port Adapter

The new Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet unfortunately doesn’t come with its own USB port but following in the same vein as Apple. Samsung have now unveiled new USB adapters that can be plugged into the Galaxy Tab’s 30 pin port to allow USB devices to be connected.

Once connected the new USB port will then allow you to attach USB keyboards, mice, thumb drives, external hard drive storage and anything else with USB connectivity to your Galaxy Tab 10.1.

Also available separately is the Samsung 30-Pin to USB Charging Data Cable, which has been designed to enable users to connect their SAMSUNG Galaxy Tab’s to compatible PCs, allowing the Tab to become an external modem while also charging and syncing your data.

The new USB Galaxy Tab adapters are now available to purchase from the Samsung Marketplace for $19.99

    Nice in theory. However…. my several thumb drives (a.k.a. USB flash drive or a dozen other nicknames) work fine, BUT external HDD (hard disk drive) does not, an old multiple format memory media reader (MS, CF, SD/xD and SM cards/sticks) also does not work with the SanDisk 8GB card I tried. Common denominator seems to be if the device is powered by the USB it doesn’t work. Error msg on the HDD said “high-power USB device attached, cannot read” or something like that.  Samsung, please say it ain’t so (or won’t be for long)
