If you think Brando’s MicroUSB OTG 3-port hub with smartphone stand which I reviewed recently is cool, you’re going to flip over the MicroUSB OTG 4-port hub also from Brando. It has one more port so that you can connect an extra USB gadget to your Android powered smartphone. Imagine connecting a regular USB keyboard, a USB mouse and 2 USB flash memory drives to your Android device. Laptop? Who needs a laptop. That’s what OTG can do for you. In case you didn’t know, OTG stands for On-the-go and it’s a feature that is built in to devices that have version 3.1 or higher of the Android OS.
This new hub from Brando doesn’t have a built in stand like the one I reviewed, so you’re on your own to prop up your device, but at $11.00 (the 3-port is priced at $10), it’s a very useful gadget to keep in your gear bag. It even comes with an adapter so you can plug it into your computer and use it as a hub there as well. I guess I should have waited a little while before buying 2 extras of the 3-port hub. Now I want a 4-port just because 4 is obviously better than 3.
