Well, I just found out that our beloved Samsung Galaxy SII (S2) already includes the required support for the USB 2 based On-The-Go (OTG) that basically means a user can connect the USB enabled storage devices for example USB flash drives, card readers etc. with the SGS2. However, keep in mind that power delivered by the Galaxy SII (S2) on the port is not very strong and cannot drive external USB HDDs unless they are powered by an external source. Also Samsung Galaxy S2 (SII) don’t come bundled with a USB 2 OTG cable. So you have to order it by yourself. But you can find it very cheap through some online sources for example its available for US $2.68 on EBay (link). So no need to connect to computer to browse files, listen to music or play video files etc. on your flash drive if you are a proud owner of Samsung Galaxy S2 (SII)! All thanks to the OTG support. Just to mention Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich is expected to have built-in USB host support.
