Just out of curiosity, has anyone tried to mirror with slimport and connect mouse via usb-OTG to the slimport-adapter usb port (or at least some of them has micro usb ports.

The micro usb port on the slim port would I imagine only work for passing power through to the phone. You'd need to use a bluetooth mouse and keyboard.

My experience with my previous phone (Atrix HD) is that a cheap bluetooth mouse from eBay did not work but an HP one did (I believe I saw it on sale at Best Buy the other day). I would recommend making sure the specs mention Android.
