    I just got my N7 and really enjoy everything about it so far. The only complaint I have is that there is no microsd card slot. Is there any workaround for this? The ideal would be a mini USB hub with a card reader, mini USB port, full size USB port, HDMI adapter and still a way to charge them all.

    I bought a USB OTG cable and a 64GB USB thumb drive and it works great. I suspect you could plug a mini USB hub into the OTG cable.

    Thanks! Can I charge my N7 without disconnecting my USB drive?

    The USB OTG cable has three connectors. One is male and plugs into the port on your N7. One is female and accepts the micro USB plug from your charger. The last is female and accepts a male USB plug. So yes, you can be charging your N7 while connecting things to it.

    Can you provide a link to the USB cable you purchased? Thanks,
