I used an external USB keyboard but it was messy to get working as it had a UK Layout and needed a special driver to map the keys properly.

I then got a Neewer Ultrathin 2.4G 2.4GHz Wireless Keyboard Mouse For PC Laptop which meant that I have both keyboard and mouse on one USB Port. The layout of the keyboard is the US one and everything seems to map properly - I really needed the pipe (|) symbol for use with a Terminal Emulator and this combo worked fine without any special driver.

The keyboard is a generic Chinese import (all instructions in that language) and other similar ones may be the same.

This looks like a useful approach for anyone who wants to do a bit of hacking without relying on a host PC and ADB connection. I suspect that the wireless approach with the keyboard/mouse powered by AAA cells will suck less power from the tablet than a direct USB connected device.

I use the Storage options Keyboard/Case.
The first one they sent had some faulty keys, but they sent a replacement really quickly and then it worked perfectly.
You need to plug the usb connection into the bottom USB port.

Can I ask if anyone has experience/advice about connecting an external webcam via the OTG/USB connection? I have tried but the camera is not recognised at all. Maybe not enough power?
