Silhouette-spoiling USB host adapter arrives for the Galaxy Tab 10.1 and  it will convert the Apple-esque 30-pin connector into full USB and thereby open up a world of connectivity to keyboards, mice, thumb drives and potentially any other USB device that gets Android support. This new $19.99 adapter will let you convert the proprietary port on the bottom of the 10 inch tablet into a USB port and also let you plug in a USB flash drive or peripheral devices………….


The Galaxy Tab 10.1 has no standard USB port, but now company tweeted about an adapter, which has just gone on sale, to convert the strangely Apple-esque port on the Galaxy Tab to a full USB one, allowing you to get your host on. USB hosting is a pretty awesome feature that has been missing from Android phones do to power restraints. Thanks to the larger batteries in tablets though, Google intro’ed the ability to host accessories like thumb drives, keyboards, and gaming controllers to the Android 3.1. The only downside to this is that since most devices are made to connect to a full sized USB port, you would need to get a micro to full USB adapter to use it. If your tablet has a micro USB adapter that is. Unfortunately the Galaxy Tab 10.1 lacks a standard USB port, opting for a 30-pin connector that looks more than a little like Apple’s 30 pin iDevice connectors. All questions of why Samsung would use something so indicative of Apple design when Apple’s already suing them for several of Samsung’s devices being too similar theirs aside. Samsung has swung to the rescue now with a 30-pin to USB adapter, but you’ll have to fork over $19.99 plus S&H (note: the $19.99 version does NOT support power over USB. Samsung’s site mentions, but lacks a version that supports charging). It is perfectly reasonable, of course, to argue that you would need adapter for any tablet with a micro-USB port, but the special port means you need a special adapter, that will only work with the Tab.
