With three built-in USB ports you can connect a full-sized keyboard, USB mouse and an external storage drive all at the same time and convert your Galaxy in to a mini desktop computer.

It's a good idea, this is what all docks should be able to do as standard imo.

It's a pretty good piece of kit the Smart Dock, couple of limitations in the software that aren't ideal, but all can be worked around quite easily with apps. Look forward to using my SIV with my dock.

This is a video I did with the Note 2 and the Dock, little sample of the sorts of things possible:

Do you know if you can use an Xbox 360 controller or how would I play a game if I did not have anything but a mouse and keyboard?
