Can my smartphone simultaneously (i) accept input from my mouse and (ii) send output to my monitor?
I have an Android smartphone (Samsung Galaxy SII), which has one microUSB port.
I'd like to hook it up to some computer peripherals: ideally, a mouse, keyboard, and monitor, all at once.
I have this microUSB/USB converter
. When I plug a USB mouse into it, I can control a cursor on the screen of the phone.
I am aware of this microUSB/HDMI converter.
When you plug a monitor into it, the phone's display is mirrored on the monitor.
Basically, if I could get both of those active at once, I'd be able to interact with my phone using the same user interface I use to interact with my computer.
But there's only one microUSB port on the phone. So what's my next step --
- a microUSB hub, if that exists?
- a regular USB hub, hooked up to all these devices by converter cables?
- this product
, a USB hub that also transmits a monitor feed?
- something else?
Has anyone gotten this working? Does anyone know how to do so, or know a reason that one of my plans wouldn't work, or have ideas for a different plan that might?
Thanks in advance for all advice!
