Idea: USB On-The-Go (OTG)
View all ideas for this Category
USB OTG is very useful by allowing users to connect to the portable device via its USB port using some kind of dongle/adapter and being able utilize the device as a host rather than just a client (ie. the portable device can act as though it were a computer) - therefore it can provide power to lower power devices and allows users to connect to them.

Also often, powered hubs or other usb power sources can be used to provide power for more power intensive devices and allow the data or other features of whatever usb device is connected to the PDA (and other portable device) to be utilized.

This all means that PDAs could connect to hard drives or external flash card readers or even MP3 players and manipulate the files on them. This could allow various activities to be carried out on the go which would otherwise require a full laptop computer - for example possibly refilling an Audiobook MP3 player or changing maps on a GPS or replacing a corrupt file from a backup, running a USB fan, etc...
