I've been using the full and micro USB slots to charge my e-cigarettes... also my phone (SGS2 I727R).

The tab looks like something out of an old sci-fi flick with an autobattery volt e-cig witha blue tip sticking out the top... pretty funny.

Excellent accessory support indeed! Apparently, i can scroll though the screens with the joysticks and use the Dpad and buttons to control some widgets!

I was more then surprised, and have not figured out what all the buttons do or the extent to which different apps will work with this.

Are there any other unlikely accessories you've tried on your Thrive yet?

Why not just use or buy a ps3 controller it works with Bluetooth and I read that it works very well with tablets
