Hi I was wondering if its possible to use the MHL in combination with a keyboard and mouse maybe using a powered hub. The device is powerful enough to be used as basic laptop replacement.

Well, considering that it has only ONE output, connecting 3 different protocols (keyboard, mouse and MHL) wouldn't really work. Unless one output can answer them all, which is most likely can't.

Yes you can do it. But u will need a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard. To run this config. I used to use my Note in a similar fashion and it was amazing.

So using a USB hub is not possible while using mhl simultaneously.
Thanks for the info.
The Z2 is powerful enough to be a console on the go and a basic laptop so I wanted to the possibility of doing this.
