    Usually not, because the keyboard adapter requires a driver, and they usually only write them for Windows, Macs and Linux. There are OTG to power to microUSB cables (that's what you'd need, since the cable to an adapter would have to be OTG) but there's no guarantee that plugging the adapter into the phone would work.

    Thanks. I have an OTG cable and when the wireless USB it works great. However, I would like to charge my tablet at the same time. I called Samsung support and they told me that the do not, at this time have a Bluetooth keyboard that will work with the Note 10.1 2014 edition. So I'm using my Log item K400.

    Most wireless USB keyboards don't require a driver as they just look like a wired USB keyboard to the host and supplygeeks' is clearly one of these.

    You can get OTG Y cables into which you can plug a power supply such as this one Micro USB Male To USB Female Host OTG Cable + Micro USB Adapter Y Splitter | eBay but I'm not sure whether the power just goes to the device (e.g. hard disk drive) or whether the phone itself will charge.

    Samsung told you there are no BT keyboards that work with the GN/2014?
    My Logitech K810 works perfectly with it. I've run it thru multiple scenarios and it's passed with flying color each time.
