Few of these threads have been made, but not sure if anyone has shown OTG USB host cable work with USB dongle supporting a bluetooth keyboard and mouse.

I followed this scheme to connect the 4th pin ID to the 5th pin ground. The rest was very simple.

Click bellow to see pictures of the USB bluetooth dongle connected via host wire with a bluetooth keyboard and mouse working flawlessly.

That thread doesn't use a bluetooth dongle. Instead, it uses the built in bluetooth feature of the phone to connect to a bluetooth keyboard and mouse without using the OTG host usb. That's why I wanted to try it this way and see if it worked.

OTG cable
If i use OTG cable for my NOVO 7 paladin(tablet with Android Version 4.0.1) or Xperia ARC(Android version 2.3.4), can it support to my external USB device(like printer)?

Why don't you want to use the built in BT? Surely then you can output to a big screen or charge the phone.

I don't have OTG cable?
Is OTG cable is required?

observation: Using USB HOST Controller Software(Available in Android market)
1) For NOVO 7 Paladin : USB HOST MODE is ACTIVE
:Keyboard, mouse not detected
2) For XPERIA ARC : USB HOST MODE not available or not Active
:Keyboard, mouse not detected
