    Keyboard and Mouse Anywhere

    Just a post to show that you can use the stock ASUS (or any other) keyboard and mouse anywhere in your home with an OTG "on the go" cable.

    I originally purchased a separate Bluetooth keyboard from Logitech to use around the house. I had visions of buying a Bluetooth mouse as well but never did because I've been getting along fine with the touch-screen while in remote mode. I had replaced the original stock Asus keyboard and mouse with a Logitech combo that I had before the P1801 so I had this Asus keyboard and mouse just sitting around.

    In a different post, I talked about buying a kit of OTG cables from Amazon because I wanted the ability to connect an Ethernet dongle to the tablet when I'm remote. It suddenly occurred to me that I should be able to connect the dongle of the Asus keyboard and mouse directly to this OTG cable and have true keyboard and mouse function instead of Bluetooth.

    So, I connected the Asus dongle to the OTG cable, which is connected to the mini-USB port on the tablet and it worked. I have native keyboard and mouse functionality in both Android and Windows while the tablet is detached.

    I tried to capture all of this in the pic below. If you look closely, you can see the stock keyboard & mouse, mouse cursor and the OTG cable. Also, the OTG cables I purchased from Amazon were from Afunta and cost about $6.50 with tax. http://goo.gl/QLtUJS
