Question [Q] USB Host USB Adapter?

Would this adapter work with the NC?


Google: Nokia N800 USB 360 OTG Adapter (top result)

(sorry can't post links)

Thanks

Migrating from the N800 to the NC...

It doesn't need to be an 'otg' adapter, but that is likely what you will get. The kernel that supports usb host mode does not sense the id pin (the only thing that makes an otg cable what it is).

Ok Thanks.

Anyone seen a non-OTG adapter like this one?

Amazon lists a micro usb (male) to usb (female) adapter that works well. The only issue I have with it is that it is a 1 piece item about 1.3" long so I have to use the nook in landscape mode in order for the cables to clear my griffin stand. I would prefer a flexible cable with the same ends attached (found one through amazon but it is 20.00 US). The adapter I got was $3.50 with free shipping from amazon. See pics below

Well I think I have found what I have been looking for...

Has anyone had any experience with something like this:
Micro B to A 360degree adapter

Thanks
