Riaanh November 1, 2012 08:11 AM Now all they need to do is load Ubuntu on the table:http://www.gizmag.com/ubuntu-for-android/22400/ Dawar Saify November 1, 2012 10:21 AM Will the usb mouse and keyboard be compatible? Is this the dream come true? Joris van den Heuvel November 1, 2012 11:52 AM @Dawar: the Note I works with generic mice and keyboards via a USB-OTG adapter, so I expect the Note II to have the same capabilities. Atul Malhotra November 1, 2012 03:01 PM Get one for Samsung ATIV S and I will buy both immediately. Now Samsung is talking sense ! Sonya Jones November 1, 2012 08:12 PM I have had no problem connecting a blue tooth keyboard and mouse to multiple cell phones. That is worth trying. Seth Kazzim March 20, 2013 10:08 AM I can see businesses getting rid of their PCs/Desktops and opting for this set-up.No need to keep upgrading hardware/software, just get a phone contract and Google Drive. Milton Pozo-Mazzini March 28, 2013 02:50 PM @Dawar @Joris van den Heuvel, The Galaxy Note II indeed handles advanced USB devices such as the Arc Mouse and Keyboard. It will also handle advanced devices like Game Pads and Joysticks, External Storage, OCR & Hand Scanners, etc. I have yet to find anything USB powered that doesn't work with the Galaxy Note II. BigGoofyGuy June 25, 2013 09:32 AM I think this is really useful. Typing on a tiny virtual keyboard is not easy, even with a stylus. MK23666 September 19, 2014 01:04 PM They need to make this for the Note Tablets too! Do away with some of the wires with WiFi or Bluetooth and Casting. Eric McGonegal October 17, 2014 04:03 AM I've tried a number of bluetooth (and wired) keyboards and touchpads/trackballs/mice with my note 2, opting finally for a backlit, fullsized keyboard and the best touchpad to work with it yet; the Apple magic trackpad.It creates a large, easily visible circle vs. the black arrow with white border outline which can be a little hard to see at times.It also works flawlessly with maps, allowing pinch to zoom in and out. Though I also liked the trackball/calculator/10-key combo I got from Amazon for $15.
