    hi everyone,

    not sure if this is an app problem or something else....

    i have a hanspree tablet; i also have a Veho usb miscrscope attached to my pc. the microscope won't run off the tablet. is there a way to make the microscope work on the tablet? or is there a microscope that will work on a hanspree?

    (i had to use an adapter to change the big microscope usb to a mini usb)

    any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

    For the USB microscope to connect you'll need an USB host function at your tab, like the USB host function at your PC.

    But most Android phones and tabs only have USB client funtion.
    So I think, your tab has only USB client function too.

    On a positive note, they added USB host support to Android starting with Honeycomb, so tablets/phones with Ice Cream and Honeycomb should begin supporting from here forward. :)

    Hi,

    We have an app available to connect our microscope to android smartphones and tablets which are OTG ready/capable and also ICS or higher OS. This is my first post so cannot put in links or images, but will gladly make images and video available to those interested.
