I used to day dream about only needing one pocket sized device for all my communicating and computing needs. One device that would serve as my phone, my camera, my laptop and my desktop computer. That reality keeps getting closer because the hardware is already available with gadgets like the UNITEK Y-3068 USB 3.0 3-Port Hub with OTG + Smartphone Stand from Brando. This small box is like a docking station for your laptop, but it’s for your Android smartphone or tablet. It provides a stand to hold your device at a comfortable viewing angle, three USB 3.0 ports and a SD card reader. Using the OTG (On-The-Go) feature built into Android devices, this hub allows you to connect a mouse, keyboard and a USB flash drive to your device, effectively turning it into a mini desktop computer. The hub comes with an AC adapter and can also be used to charge up to three devices at once.
The UNITEK Y-3068 USB 3.0 3-Port Hub with OTG + Smartphone Stand is priced at $55 and is available from Brando.
