    Looking at the official SGN 10.1 KEyboard dock:
    Galaxy Note 10.1 Keyboard Dock - OVERVIEW

    Anyone know if the 30-pin side-port will accept the USB OTG adapter as well so I can plug in a mouse or thumbdrive while using the keyboard?

    :thinking: The original Note 10.1 uses a proprietary 30-pin connector (unlike the Note 10.1 2014 edition).

    To answer the question... Yes, USB OTG 30-pin adapter works based on XDA users. Flash drive and USB mouse. The MHL adapter will also work with the 30-pin port.

    Thanks! :)

    Trying to decide whether to go with this or a Bluetooth keyboard I found WITH a touchpad built-in.

    Should have specified I have the old 30-pin version, sorry.

    Good to know it works on android, I've been thinking about getting one of those to use for a PLEX box (streaming video over network, for those not familiar with it) Though for my note I'm actually looking at this:

    Bluetooth Keyboard Touchpad Leather Case for Samsung Galaxy NOTE10 1 N8000 N8010 | eBay

    Not sure about quality or battery-life or anything, but it looks like exactly what I want (turns the tablet into a ultra-light-laptop - no need for awkward tapping when using the KB) only thing it lacks is easily-accessable-USBs (REALLY wish a company would make some docks like the old Asus Transformer dock... that was the best *design* I've seen, though the tablet itself was pretty bad...)
