Samsung Galaxy S III Plays Well With Others
The Samsung Galaxy S III is already one of the most capable phones out there, and now we’re hearing even more about its capability to use external accessories via the microUSB port. XDA user NZtechfeak has done some testing and discovered that the latest and greatest from Samsung will play USBHost to XBOX 360, PS3 and Wii controllers, as well as portable hard drives, flash drives, keyboards, mice and more. You’ll need a USB-To-Go adapter to make it all work, but after that the integration is seamless. See the video after the break showing the possibilities…
You can see in the following video that the SGSIII has no trouble running multiple devices using a USB hub. It also has enough juice to power an external hard drive, a first for any phone as far as we can tell. The phone also supports USB-Audio out, which allows high quality audio to be output to a device of your choosing. All of these devices mentioned work out of the box, no rooting, flashing or hacking required. It really looks like Samsung has set the bar in terms of flexibility and versatility for phone.
